The first footage of Rachel Zegler as Snow White has been released. West Side Story star Rachel Jegler has appeared in the upcoming film adaptation of the classic Disney cartoon as Snow White. The first footage was released by the tabloid Daily Mail.
It is learned that Rachel Zegler will be the first actress of Hispanic descent to play the role of Snow White. The incident sparked heated debate over whether a girl from another nation could play a German fairy tale character.
The film was also criticized by Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, who was born with dwarfism. He stressed that people of this type of development are still under-represented in society and industry.
“You try to be progressive, but again you’re talking about seven dwarfs who live together in a cave. What’s the matter? I haven’t been clean enough for so many years?” He protested.
True, Disney promised to consider his comments.
The original cartoon Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, was first released in 1938. It became Walt Disney’s first animated film and was a huge success for the studio. Thanks to the innovative technique, the tape won an Oscar.
The new film will expand on the story and musical part of the original film. The film is directed by Mark Webb, who has directed Gifted, 500 Days of Summer and the TV series Why Women Kill. Produced by Mark Platt (La La Land, etc.). Composers Benz Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman) are working on the song for Snow White.
