We heard a little while ago that Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was getting a live-action remake. This was always going to be a delicate subject. The title has the word dwarves in it, how would Disney handle this? The good news is, there was no need to worry. We all thought it might turn out bad, but here is the first image of the seven ‘dwarves’ from the set of the new movie.
I personally cannot see any issues with this at all. Everything looks great and we can all relax and look forward to the movie. Although, saying that, I cannot see Peter Dinklage, so maybe he’s so short he’s lost in the grass.
Yes, this is the cast they have gone with for the new Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Well, the Seven People from a Folk Festival. Every box is ticked, you can even tell which one is trans, which one is gay and which one is the non-binary, gender-fluid cat.
I think we mentioned, before the LMO 2.0, that Snow White is being played by Rachel Zegler. Snow White. WHITE. To quote from the original Brother Grimm story:
“How I wish that I had a daughter that had skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony.”
Let’s face it, who is surprised? It’s the done thing these days. They never stick to the original work, it’s all about getting the message across.
Turning in his grave
A remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is an insult to Walt Disney himself. Everyone told him he couldn’t make a full-length animated movie. He put his money where his mouth was and made it. In fact, he had to mortgage his own house to pay for it.
Walt Disney was an artist who put everything he had into creating something people had never seen before. Sure, he was making it to make money, but that was so he could make more art. It’s now 2023, the Disney company is still out to make money. They are not making the art that Walt originally produced.
Snow White and the Seven Figure Loss will be due out in March 2024.
