Disney has found a way to make the new live-action remake of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” into a public relations nightmare in what is becoming a master class ruining good will with customers. Rachel Zegler, who plays the role of “Snow White” in the soon-to-be-released film, has been on tour giving interviews and with each passing one has made the movie get more and more hate on social media.
Zegler and the studio seem to think that the best way to market “Snow White” is to attack the original story, especially the prince who saves Snow White, as being misogynistic and out of touch with modern values. Fans, however, are showing on social media that this take is complete insane to the millions of Americans that Disney wants to sell the movie to.
Speaking about the film in a clip shared by End Wokeness on the X platform, (video is below) , Zegler was quick to dismiss the idea that the motion picture would display any sort of love story between Snow White and the Prince. “I mean, you know, the original cartoon came out in 1937 and very evidently so,” she said. “There’s a big focus on her love story with a guy who literally stalks her. Weird! Weird. So we didn’t do that this time.”
“We have a different approach to, what I’m sure a lot of people will assume is a love story, just because we cast a guy in the movie, Andrew Burnap, great dude,” Zegler continued. “It’s one of those things that I think everyone’s going to have their assumptions about what it’s going to be, but it’s really not about the love story at all, which is really, really wonderful.”
In yet another bizarre move from Disney, the company nixed the seven dwarves from the movie, instead opting for a diverse slate of actors who come from different backgrounds and ethnicities. That decision to cast actors who are far taller than the original characters came after “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage blasted the studio for making a “making that f***ing backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together.”
Disney responded in typical fashion, saying, “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.”
There is an abundance of Tweets that roast Zegler and Disney for their spectacular debacle, that is the upcoming “Snow White” film. One user says, “Rachel Zegler is single-handedly destroying this movie. My TikTok feed is full of ppl on all sides posting about her holier-than-thou crappy attitude is not okay & Snow doesn’t need to be modern.”
Another user notes, “#RachelZegler the new #SnowWhite is the most unlikable actress I have ever heard…She hates her Snow White character, and after she came out against the original movie, she is now crying over the backlash.”
It just gets worse and worse….
