Disney’s live-action adaptation of ‘Snow White’ is currently scheduled to be released globally in theatres on March 22, 2024, but new information has come to light to suggest that the movie could be delayed.
In the latest edition of the Puck newsletter, Matt Belloni disclosed that the scheduled release date for ‘Snow White’ is likely to change, stating that the project will “almost certainly move off that date.”
As the former editor of The Hollywood Reporter, Matt Belloni is generally considered a highly credible source in the entertainment industry.
According to sources at TheDisInsider.com, the film is yet to be completed as reshoots are still pending. The production, which was underway in London as of July, faced delays due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
There’s been no explanation for the movie’s delay, although it’s very likely related to the ongoing Hollywood strikes and may also be influenced by the numerous controversies surrounding the film.
While Disney has not yet officially announced a delay, there’s a good chance we’ll hear formal news regarding any postponement in the coming weeks, potentially during the Destination D23 event where we might get a first look at the movie.
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 confirmed that he will be playing Grumpy in the film.
