Peter Dinklage finds Snow White’s print offensive

Last year, Disney announced that it was working on a live-action remake of an animated feature film. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. If many fans shouted about the lack of risk on the part of the company’s studios, then actor Peter Dinklage is also angry. But the reason is completely different.

A new version of Snow White is already splitting

Issued in 1937, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs It is the first classic Disney animated film. The work, lasting a little over an hour and 20 minutes, adapts the homonymous tale of the Brothers Grimm, which was published in 1812 and focused on the story of Snow White, a young woman who is abused by her mischievous stepmother, is so jealous of her beauty that he tries to kill her. Well, everyone knows it, as today the animated film remains one of the most cult Disney films.

So it makes sense that the big-eared company decided to embark on a live-action remaking project, Which is supposed to start filming in March. This version in real shots will allow us in particular to discover Snow white with South American features, Because the cult character will be played by actress Rachel Ziegler. The actress was recently showing another remake, which is West side storyWe will face Gal Gadot (amazing woman) as the Queen of Evil.

But while filming for this new movie has yet to begin, the project is already divisive. On the other hand, some onlookers denounced Disney’s not taking the risk, which used to rely on its achievements by multiplying its remakes (The Lion King, Mulan, Aladdin…). On the other hand, and that’s more unexpected, we have Peter Dinklage. The 52-year-old actor, known for his role as Tyrion Lannister in game of ThronesIn fact His distrust and anger towards the upcoming live action version Snow white.

Disney: Relative Progressive?

Yesterday Peter Dinklage was the guest of the American podcast WTF with Marc Maron. During this, the actor returned to his career, but also to his values ​​and certain parts of the film industry. So he came to address the issue of a remake of snow whitewhich he considers really a hypocrite.

I don’t want to offend anyone, but I was a little surprised when they (Disney, editor’s note) were so proud to cast a Hispanic actress to play Snow White, that they went on to tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Take a step back and see what you’re doing, it makes no sense to me. Peter Dinklage

If you’re wondering what pisses off the actor, it’s the willingness of Disney and Hollywood to step up. He has no problem in principle, but He denounces “double weight, two actions” which is clearly infuriating.

You’re progressive on the one hand, but you keep telling that backward story of the seven dwarves who live together in a cave! what the hell are you doing? Peter Dinklage

Glad to see Disney is calling for more inclusion and diversity, so former translator Tyrion Lannister regrets the company hasn’t updated it Some of his insulting stories of certain people here are dwarves Today, he remains victims of the prejudices that the actor tried to fight throughout his career. But I’m not sure it will be unanimous this time: He is the one who defended his tooth and nail game of Thrones At risk of causing anger Some die-hard Disney fans who cry “wokkie” in the name of diversity.
