Disney’s Snow White live-action film has been swept up in a storm of controversy since it was announced. First, moviegoers wondered “why do we need another big screen Snow White film when we just had two dueling SW films back in 2012.” Then there was the casting of Rachel Zegler (someone whose skin is not as white as snow as the fable says) but those complaints died out when all 5 of the people who saw 2021’s West Side Story praised her performance. Then came the next big complaint from Game of Thrones fan favorite, actor Peter Dinklage.
Dinklage cringed at the thought of dwarves being represented as dirty magical creatures who worship at the feet of an underage girl who sings to animals in the forest.
So Disney, who are known for virtue signaling horribly in the spotlight, now have decided to make a HUGE change to the Snow White fable.
The new Snow White film will replace dwarves with….”magical creatures.”
In a report by TheWrap, which details Disney’s response following the criticism, several details have now been revealed about the characters that will adventure alongside the titular Disney princess.
“Instead of dwarfs, Disney will fill the void with a group of what they describe as “magical creatures,” according to casting sheets that TheWrap has seen. (They are currently looking for voice actors to give these creatures personality.) It’s unclear if they will inhabit the same roles as the dwarfs – will they be mining for jewels? Will they have names like Sleepy, Grumpy, and Bashful? – but these magical creatures will be the substitutes for the original seven dwarfs.”
Shortly after Dinklage’s disapproval of Disney’s plans for a Snow White remake, the studio provided a statement revealing that they will be taking a “different approach” to the depiction of certain characters. “To avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we are taking a different approach with these seven characters and have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community,” a Disney spokesperson said, per Variety. “We look forward to sharing more as the film heads into production after a lengthy development period.”
I can’t wait for the next complaint from the Wiccan community who might complain about the fact that a jealous woman who practices the dark arts is vindictive towards another woman for being prettier than she is….
When the woke mob rules nobody has fun and the world becomes a less enjoyable place. Whatever happened to “If you don’t like it, don’t watch it” mode of thinking?
