“I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. You’re still telling the story of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me,” he told Maron. “You’re progressive in one way and you’re still making that f—ing backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together, what the f— are you doing man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox? I guess I’m not loud enough.”
The original “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the first full length animated feature from Disney, can still be told says Dinklage, it just needs to be updated to today’s standards.
“If you tell the story of ‘Snow White’ with the most f—ed up, progressive spin on it? Let’s do it. All in,” he told Maron.
The company added that they “have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community” during the film’s “lengthy development period.”
More will be shared about the film as it begins production, the statement added.
