Peter Dinklage Criticizes Disney+ Live Action Film

Disney’s latest live-action Snow White movie in production has come under fire after game of thrones actor Peter Dinklage criticized the same. After Disney announced that their next live-action movie would be an adaptation of the acclaimed classic animated film Snow White and the Seven DwarfsDinklage opined on the idea on the WTF Podcast and called it “fu***** upside down” about midgets.

Peter Dinklage’s statement on the live-action adaptation of the Disney film:

Dinklage called it all hypocritical. He said, “There’s a lot of hypocrisy. Literally no offense to anyone, but I was a little surprised when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. But you still tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Take a step back and look at what you are doing there. That does not make any sense”

He then added: “You’re progressive in a way, but you always do this fucking backwards story about seven dwarfs living together in a cave, what the fuck are you doing man? Did I do anything to further the cause from my rostrum I guess I’m not strong enough I don’t know which studio it is but they were so proud of it All my love and respect to the actress and all the people who thought they were doing the right thing. But I’m just like, what are you doing?

Disney’s response to Peter Dinklage’s criticism of the Snow White live-action movie:

A day after Dinklage made this comment, a statement was released by Disney. In it, their spokesperson said, “To avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we’re taking a different approach with these seven characters and consulting with members of the dwarfism community. We look forward to sharing more as the film enters production after a long period of development.

The film, which is an adaptation of the 1937 animated classic, stars Rachel Zegler in the lead role while Gal Gadot is set to play Queen Grimhilde. Tony Award-winning actor Andrew Burnap is also part of the cast. According to a report in The Hollywood Reporterthe film will have cultural advisers as it did for Aladdin and Mulane.

The creators, who have had this project in development for over three years now, also considered depicting the seven dwarfs in CGI or animated characters. Oscar-nominated producer Marc Platt, who worked on The little Mermaid for the studio, will produce this project.
