“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage was furious about Disney’s plans to shoot his 1937 cartoon classic, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, with live actors.
As Snow White, “West Side Story” star Rachel Zegler will be seen, while Gal Gadot will play the evil stepmother and queen when filming begins in England in March.
It is not yet known how the film studio will decipher how the seven dwarves from the original story will be produced. But Dinklage finds it pointless to remake this particular fairy tale, which he says depicts short people in an old-fashioned way.
– There’s a lot of hypocrisy going on. Not to offend anyone, but I was a little surprised at how proud they were when they played the Latin American born actor as Snow White. But they still tell the story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”! Take a step back, was Peter Dinklage’s call to Disney when he was a guest WTF Podcasts , reproduced in Australian media.
– You’re progressive in one way, but you’re still making up an ancient story about seven dwarves living together in a cave. What are you doing?
Peter Dinklage mused on the podcast that he may not have spoken loud enough in the struggle to promote a more respectable depiction of the short person.
– Have I achieved nothing to further the goals of my pulpit? wonder popular and award-winning actor – who this spring will also be seen in Norwegian cinema in the main role in «Cyrano». There he gives a twist on the famous story of Cyrano with a big nose: Poets and swordsmen instead think he’s impossible to love because he’s short.
Dinklage said on the podcast that he likes seeing versions of “Snow White” with “cool or progressive changes”. But to retell the old Brothers Grimm fairy tales as they are in today’s films, he meant “meaningless”.
The dwarves are not named in the original story, but Disney gave them names after them characteristics : Shy, Stupid, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Doc, Glasses, and Sneezing.
