Disney's Live-Action 'Snow White' Will Not Feature the Seven Dwarfs

Earlier this week, Disney was called out by actor Peter Dinklage for the presumed perpetuating of “f**cking backwards” depiction of dwarfs, but unknowingly at the time of Dinklage’s statement, it appears Disney has removed the use of Dwarfs from the story all together.

In response to the backlash, Disney has released a statement sharing that the movie will not feature the iconic Seven Dwarfs, but will instead introduce a new cast of “magical creatures”, according to a vocal casting call for the film. The statement from Disney reads:

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. We look forward to sharing more as the film heads into production after a lengthy development period.

Not much is known about the upcoming movie at this time. Reportedly, filming is set to begin this Spring in the UK. The remake currently stars Rachel Zegler (Snow White), Gal Gadot (The Evil Queen), and Andrew Burnap (unspecified role). The new film will be produced by Marc Platt, directed by Marc Webb, with new music and reimagined renditions by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La, La, LandThe Greatest ShowmanDear Evan Hansen).

  1. It will be interesting to see how this turns out. I personally love the 7 dwarves and never considered them stereotypical.
