Rachel Zegler Will Modernize Snow White in Disney’s Live-Action Movie

Disney’s live-action “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” will update the character of Snow White.  Rachel Zegler is playing her, and she says the 1937 version doesn’t work for today.

“We did a really deep dive into fixing and making a modern woman out of Snow White.  I think she’s 13 in the original cartoon, so we started there and said, ‘No, she’s 18 in this one.’  She’s a bit more independent”

She went on to say, “She’s also living in grief.  And understanding what it’s like to be a teenager on top of all that.  It was really incredible to watch the cartoon and see, there’s no more waiting for a man, which is really nice.”

A release date hasn’t been announced yet, but it’ll hit theaters sometime in 2024 and feature Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen.
