Disney and director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer, The Amazin Spider-Man) are behind yet another animated fairy tale movie getting a modern live-action version with Snow White. The studio already hired young actress Rachel Zegler (West Side Story, Shazam!: Fury of The Gods) to play the iconic Disney princess in the new movie.
Deadline is reporting that Israeli actress Gal Gadot has nabbed the antagonist role of the Evil Queen, joining others such as Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie, and Cate Blanchette playing female Disney villains. The Evil Queen attempts to poison/kill Snow White when her magic mirror reveals that the young princess is a rival to her own beauty.
Gadot confirmed the report on the red carpet for her upcoming Netflix film, Red Notice.
Technically, this would be her third Disney role after Ralph Breaks The Internet and 20th Century Studios’ murder mystery pic Death On The Nile. Perhaps, this is yet another step towards Gadot potentially joining the Marvel or Star Wars cinematic universes.
We’ll keep my fingers crossed that Marvel Studios considers her Squadron Supreme members Princess Power or Thundra, whenever, they make their live-action debut.
Gal is also attached to Wonder Woman 3, but director Patty Jenkins will be busy with Star Wars: Rogue Squadron for the next two years. It’ll be interesting to see if DC Films attempts to squeeze her in another DCEU before then.
Snow White & The Seven Dwarves is one of the most iconic Disney films as it was their first animated feature film released all the way back in 1937.
SNOW WHITE & THE SEVEN DWARVES – Jealous of Snow White’s beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.
