Among the many live-action that Disney intends to create, check that of Snow White, the first animated classic of the House of Mickey Mouse. The project is in the hands of Marc Webb, director, and Marc Platt, producer. The film will be a musical, and this aspect has been entrusted no less than the care of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the duo responsible for the songs that we can hear in La La Land, The Greatest Showman, and Dear Evan Hansen.
The story of Snow White has been revisited several times, starting with the German fairy tale first published in 1812 by the Brothers Grimm. Disney then released its animated version in 1937, titled Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. According to some sources of Deadline, the live-action plot will expand not only the story told by the animated classic but also the musical part.
Disney Snow White: Live-Action Release Date
But what is the release date of Snow White’s live-action? We cannot yet know when the film comes out in theatres. Disney has not made any statements about it. It’s too early. We only know that production is expected to release in 2022.
That said, the studio has already set the debut of its upcoming films through 2027, even though there have already been quite a few shifts due to the pandemic. One of the days listed could be assigned to the adaptation in question. We will have to wait to know when the studio will position the feature, hoping that there will not be too many shifts, as happened instead to Mulan.
Snow White: Cast, Actors, and Characters
The first announcement relating to the cast of Disney’s live-action on Snow White concerns the protagonist. Rachel Zegler was chosen for her role, who at the end of 2021 landed in the cinema as Maria in the musical film West Side Story, directed by Steven Spielberg. Thanks to the role, she also managed to win a Golden Globe for best actress. The director Marc Webb said about the actress:
Rachel’s extraordinary vocal skills are just a hint of her talent. Her strength, her intelligence, and her optimism will be integral parts in the rediscovery of the joy of this classic Disney fairy tale.
In a second moment, it was then announced the participation of none other than Gal Gadot, who will play the role of the Evil Queen. In the coming months, we should get to know the rest of the actors who will join the cast of the live-action on Snow White and the characters they will play. At the production of the project, we find Marc Platt once again.
