Even if Snow White isn’t white anymore, “They’re still doing that damn backwards story about seven dwarfs living together in a cave?” Dinklage lamented in a podcast. A slap in the face for Disney. They actually wanted to avoid reinforcing negative stereotypes about the original animated film, the studio said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. You take the allegations seriously and admit that the seven characters would be portrayed differently. They would also consult with representatives of the short stature community.
The remake, designed as a musical, is a live-action adaptation of the classic fairy tale. The Disney Studio had already given the leading role of Snow White to Rachel Zegler (20), daughter of a Colombian, in the summer. It remains unclear who will play the seven dwarfs.
