If we're talking classic Disney films, it doesn't get more traditional than Snow White—the film that basically kicked off the Disney Princess franchise after its release in 1937. So in a time when remakes are popping up left, right and center, it's about time Snow White and her seven dwarves showed their faces again.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney is planning to remake Grimm's fairytale, complete with original songs. They've even hired The Girl on the Train screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson to write the screenplay, and the songwriters behind La La Land (Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's upcoming Oscar-tipped film) are set to pen the songs. So yeah, *kind* of a big deal.
Of course, we've had many versions of Snow White over the years, including the 2012 Snow White and the Huntsman, which starred Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, but this new remake is coming from Disney Studios—meaning it's going to be huge, and pretty awesome.
Snow White will follow Cinderella, which starred Lily James, Jungle Book with Idris Elba and Beauty and the Beast, where Emma Watson takes the lead role for its release next March. So basically, we're expecting some big names in the cast, and are already imagining Lily Collins as the perfect Snow.
We're still waiting on a release date, but with Beauty and the Beast and Mulan yet to hit the screens, we're guessing it might be a long way off yet. Which is perfect, because it gives us plenty of time to watch every single Disney movie again.
Just one question: can Little Mermaid get in on the remakes please? Cheers.
