Rachel Zegler Talks About Ways Disney’s Original Princess Has Been Modified in NEW Live Action Film
Rachel Zegler is EVERYWHERE just now. As the star of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story she is winning over audiences and critics a like. If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog you’ll also know that Zegler will be starring in the title role of Disney’s live action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
During a recent interview with Buzzfeed, Zegler talked about ways that Disney’s original princess has been modernized. In the interview, Zegler says that live-action Show White will be a lot stronger no longer giving critics room to argue that the character exists solely for a prince.
Here at MickeyBlog HQ we are pretty darn excited for the live action version of Snow White particularly given that Zegler is in the leading role and will be joined by Gal Gadot in the role of the Evil Queen. The film will be directed by Marc Webb.
During the Buzzfeed interview, Zegler said that she hopes to bring something new to the character, “Even though she’s the original Disney princess and we love her so much, [she’s been] criticized for existing solely for a prince, existing solely to be rescued. And I think that our director, Marc Webb, and everyone who’s working on this film has really taken her narrative and turned it into something that’s a lot stronger.”
She concluded, “And I’m very, very excited to be able to bring that to life.”
And we are excited to watch it! Disney has not set a release date for Snow White as of yet. Production is slated to start next year. In the meantime, you can also check out Rachel in West Side Story.
