Disney Responds To Peter Dinklage’s Concerns About The Snow White Remake

Given how much success Disney has had with the live-action remakes of its classic animated movies over the last decade, it stood to reason that eventually it would turn its gaze to 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, the studio’s first full-length animated feature film. However, yesterday Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage expressed concerns about the Mouse House tackling a Snow White remake, namely over the title seven men that help out the princess protagonist. Now Disney has issued a response to his comments.

For those who missed it, during his recent appearance on WTF with Marc Maron, Peter Dinklage talked about how even with the “progressive” casting choice of West Side Story’s Rachel Zegler, a Latina actress, playing the live-action Snow White, Disney is still telling a “fucking backward story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together.” Here’s what Disney had to say about the actor’s remarks:

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.
