As Snow White, “West Side Story” star Rachel Zegler will be seen, while Gal Gadot will play the evil stepmother and queen when filming begins in England in March.
It is not yet known how the film studio will decipher how the seven dwarves from the original story will be produced. But Dinklage finds it pointless to remake this particular fairy tale, which he says depicts short people in an old-fashioned way.
– There’s a lot of hypocrisy going on. Not to offend anyone, but I was a little surprised at how proud they were when they played the Latin American born actor as Snow White. But they still tell the story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”! Take a step back, was Peter Dinklage’s call to Disney when he was a guest WTF Podcastsreproduced in Australian media.
– You’re progressive in one way, but you’re still making up an ancient story about seven dwarves living together in a cave. What are you doing?
Peter Dinklage mused on the podcast that he may not have spoken loud enough in the struggle to promote a more respectable depiction of the short person.
– Have I achieved nothing to further the goals of my pulpit? asked the popular and award-winning actor.
Dinklage said on the podcast that he likes seeing versions of “Snow White” with “cool or progressive changes”. But to retell the old Brothers Grimm fairy tales as they are in today’s films, he meant “meaningless”.
The dwarves were anonymous in the original story, but Disney gave them names after them characteristics: Shy, Stupid, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Doc, Glasses, and Sneezing.
Following Dinklage’s criticism, Disney has come out with an answer, in which they promised that the seven dwarves “will be depicted in a different way to avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film”. Disney states according to Hollywood Reporter that they had sought advice from “members of the short society” and that “Snow White” films, such as “Aladdin” and “Mulan”, would have a cultural consultant.
Without revealing how Disney said it has been working to “reinterpret” the short story characters since remake development began three years ago.
