Disney’s new live-action adaption of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” has been marred in controversy throughout its entire marketing run. As lead actress Rachel Zegler continues to drag the “Snow White” brand through the mud in interviews and casting decisions, have exposed the woke mindset of the filmmakers behind the show, the son of the original “Snow White” director is speaking out against the remake.
David Hand directed the 1937 animated film “Snow White,” and his son, also named David Hand, is a 91-year-old who fondly remembers his father’s career-defining motion picture. Hand was taken aback by Ziegler’s comments regarding the original movie, calling it outdated and noting many things that she found wrong about the 1937 movie (meaning that certain motifs don’t fit her woke worldview).
The younger hand also worked at Disney for some time in the 1990s and knows that his father and founder Walt Disney would not stand for the way that the company has shifted to woke virtue signaling in recent years. In an interview with The Telegraph, Hand admonished the leftist leaning that has destroyed the newest “Snow White” film.
Speaking about Zegler’s comments about his father’s masterpiece, Hand said, “I mean, it’s a whole different concept, and I just totally disagree with it, and I know my dad and Walt would also very much disagree with it. I think it’s pathetic that people feel that way… these are art forms in the world of film today.”
Hand, like many other movie fans, hates the way that companies like Disney attempt to rewrite history by changing stories to fit the modern political agenda of the left. He explains that the original film was made in the 1930s and it reflects the popular culture of that time period. That is, by no means, a reason to admonish the film.
Hand explained, “They change the stories, they change the thought processes of the characters, they just aren’t the original stories anymore. They’re making up new woke things and I’m just not into any of that. I find it quite frankly, a bit insulting that they may have done with some of these classic films.”
Disney’s “Little Mermaid” adaptation was yet another example of woke messaging by the media giant. Casting that was clearly meant to make a point about diversity led to a film that was disliked by the masses. The same goes for the recent “Toy Story” spinoff “Lightyear,” which saw audiences admonish the film en masse after some questionable romance scenes forced parents to have uncomfortable conversations with their kids.
This constant woke pandering is causing serious problems for Disney who, for the first time in recent memory, are taking losses on films that should have been smash hits at the box office. A remake of the classic “Snow White” should be a slam dunk for the company, but they have somehow turned its profitability into a massive question mark.
