Disney has updated its theatrical release calendar which shows Disney’s upcoming live-action “Snow White” will release in theaters on March 22, 2024.
Rachel Zegler (West Side Story) will play Snow White in the adaptation and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman franchise) will star as The Evil Queen. Tony-winning actor Andrew Burnap (The Inheritance) has been cast as the male lead and is said to play a new character in the movie, rather than The Prince or the Huntsman of past iterations. Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Caribbean) also recently confirmed that he will be playing Grumpy in the film.
Insiders say the live-action film will expand on the story and music from the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs animated movie which was released in 1937. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen) have written new songs for the movie.
Academy Award nominee Greta Gerwig wrote the script. Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) directs the movie. Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns, La La Land) is producing. Cinematographer Mandy Walker (Mulan) has also joined Disney’s live-action “Snow White” film.
“Snow White” will hit theaters on March 22, 2024.
