It’s officially happening, and Rachel Zegler is starring.
Thoughts?June 23, 2021 at 6:13 am #1204314210
Zzzzz, all of these remakes are awful, except Cinderella.
Zegler fits the bland herione bill. All that matters is who gets to play the Queen and whether there will be contoversy if they don’t hire real little people as dwarves.June 23, 2021 at 8:05 am #1204314355
My dream casting for the Queen: Nicole KidmanJune 23, 2021 at 9:18 am #1204314498
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
End of the movie.
Kidman as the Queen would be the repeat of Theron as the Queen. Snow White BTFO.June 23, 2021 at 9:42 am #1204314564
Rachel Zegler must have been excellent in WSS. She hasn’t made her screen debut and she’s already booked a role in a superhero film and is a Disney princess.June 23, 2021 at 10:13 am #1204314607
Nah, Naomi Scott was also put in big movies, well, what was expected to be big, before anyone saw the first one (Power Rangers) and after the short-lived blip on the radar with Aladdin, she crashed with Charlie’s Angels, couldn’t even get a role in Obi Wan series (Moses Ingram beat her to it). Zegler is a replacement by the look of it and lets not pretend that Maria is a tough role. Look pretty and in love, sing well, that’s all that is.No wonder that she got a superhero and Snow White, 2 other lightweight roles.June 23, 2021 at 11:10 am #1204314762
Zzzz. Rachel Zegler will be bland & boring just like all of the other live action Disney princesses. This remake is unnecessary.July 2, 2021 at 4:47 pm #1204327429

It is tough vocally for sure. Dramatically it’s not especially complex but that doesn’t make it easy to pull off.
As for this Snow White remake, I don’t care much for it, nor do I think there’s quite enough shared nostalgia for the very early Disney films among modern moviegoers to guarantee a smash (see the receipts for Dumbo), but Ziegler deserves the benefit of the doubt at least until we’ve seen WSS.December 12, 2021 at 12:09 am #1204645285
So it was just announced that Greta Gerwig is attached as the writer of the script for this. It’s unclear if she is the main author of the adaptation or is “merely” punching up a script written by someone else.
I’m sure that Gerwig’s involvement will be a plus for this project, and she should do whatever she wants but personally, I’d much prefer for her to be writing and directing her own original works.December 12, 2021 at 12:11 am #1204645289
I’m tired of these live-action remakes.December 12, 2021 at 12:15 am #1204645300
Films like these are the one of many reasons why Razzies exists

I’m half wanting this movie to fail and half wanting it to be a smashing success after all the racist death threats Zegler received for this.December 12, 2021 at 9:53 am #1204646304
