Live-Action Snow White Remake to Begin Production in 2020
“I’m wishing… I’m wishing… For the one I love…”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) is the one fans love and is, perhaps, the most important of Walt Disney’s Animated classics; mainly because none of the others would have been made had Disney’s first full-length animated feature not had its phenomenal success.
And it looks like Disney will go back to the wishing well as it looks to bolster its live-action lineup. A live-action Snow White remake is in the works!

Disney’s current trend of live-action adaptations of their animated films have been filled with box office success, both Aladdin and The Lion King have exceeded a billion dollars globally. With all that success means more remakes and Snow White is gearing up production.
We have learned from sources that a casting search has already begun to look for the studios next live-action Princess, Prince, Evil Queen/Old Hag, and the seven dwarfs.
Additionally, we have also learned that production on the project is expected to begin next March in Vancouver, Canada.
THE Animated Classic
Shuler also reminded readers of the movie’s plot:
Released in 1938, The Grimm fairy tale gets a Technicolor treatment in Disney’s first animated feature. Jealous of Snow White’s beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.
However, there’s little doubt that most of the Disney-loving world knows all about Walt’s first fairytale. In fact, most of us have sung along to its music:
However, even with the phenomenal box office success of reboots like The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, fans of the classics hope that Walt Disney Studios can rekindle the special magic first seen in the 20th Century.
