Disney’s live-action remake of “Snow White” has gone so far woke that producers have made the decision to replace the dwarves with “magical creatures.” This decision reportedly came after Peter Dinklage, an actor with dwarfism, complained about the decision to cast a Latina actress in the role of Snow White to push the woke agenda while still having “dwarves” in the film, which Dinklage found hypocritical.
In a podcast with Marc Maron, Dinklage pointed out the hypocrisy of the Disney producers. “There’s a lot of hypocrisy going,” said Dinklage. “Literally no offense to anyone, but I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. But you’re still telling the story of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me.”
Dinklage thought it strange that Disney opened to go with a Latina Snow White. The fairy tale is, after all, a German folk story about a German princess with fair white skin. Hence the name Snow White. Dinklage continued, saying, “You’re progressive in one way, but then you’re still making that f***ing backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together, what the f*** are you doing, man?… I guess I’m not loud enough.”
Following that statement from Dinklage, Disney shared a statement with the Hollywood Reporter, 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.”
Sane people on the internet were completely taken by how brutally Disney managed to bastardize the film through casting. A movie about seven dwarves and one princess with fair white skin will now only feature one dwarf from that original cadres, with six of the “Dwarves” being played by full-grown adults.
Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire noted this insanity in a Tweet on Friday. In response to the casting of the Latina Actress to play Snow White, he shared, “Snow White is a 19th century German fairy tale. The name literally refers to the character’s skin color. This is what actual cultural appropriation looks like. Probably the most blatant case we’ve seen yet.”

It would seem that Disney is still set to release the film in March 2024, a baffling move considering the wild casting decisions that have been made by the company. Maybe, if you don’t like the way that the eight titular characters of a story are portrayed, then it’s not the right movie to make. Instead of completely changing the makeup of a hundreds-of-years-old story to fit woke ideal, it would have been a much better move to simply create a story from scratch to push the woke teachings of Disney.
