New Snow Whitea film that makes people talk
For several years, Disney has been offering remakes in live-action of a number of his animation classics. Building on the success of these films, such as The Lion King Where Aladdin, the studio does not intend to stop there. Among his projects in development, we learned recently that he was preparing a new version of The Aristocats. But before that, we can discover a remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfswhose development is more advanced.
Shortened to the sole title of Snow Whitethe film will be directed by Marc Webb, known in particular for having boxed the two Spiderman Andrew Garfield version. Cast-wise, many fans applauded Disney for choosing Rachel Zegler in the title role. Corn Peter Dinklage recently tackled the big-eared studio without restraint. If he also welcomed the choice of Zegler as the heroine, he was indignant at the idea of bringing the story up to date. of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Disney didn’t take long to respond to these criticisms.

Shortly after Peter Dinklage’s comments, the famous studio wanted to reassure the actor. In a statement sent to various media, the firm with big ears revealed that she approached the story of the tale in a totally new way. And that she consulted short people to make sure she portrayed them well on screen:
To avoid reinforcing the stereotypes of the original animated film, we’re going to take a different approach to these seven characters. We also consulted people with dwarfism. We can’t wait to say more about the film as it enters production after a long period of development.
Dwarfs replaced by “magical creatures”
We can therefore expect major changes in the plot of Snow White compared to the original story. The Wrap thinks he already knows one. The media claims to have seen sheets on the cast of the film in which dwarves are described as “magical creatures ». It is not yet known if these characters will have the same role as the seven protagonists of the animated film, but they will replace them on the screen. The Wrap specifies that Disney is currently looking for actors who will lend their voices to the screen.
In any case, it will be necessary to be patient before discovering the result of this modernization of the original story. Snow White doesn’t have a release date yet, but will probably not be unveiled before 2023.
