Reboots, Reboots Everywhere

If there is one thing we have seen a lot of over the past few years, it is live action Disney reboots. Disney has been working its way through its intellectual property putting new spins on beloved tales.

Quite a few fan favorites now have both animated and live action variants. Among the titles that have been given live action makeovers are Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Dumbo, Mulan, and Aladdin.

Additionally, Disney has gotten started on one of its more recently announced remakes. Plans for the live action Little Mermaid are well underway.

Of course, these remakes have been met with mixed reviews. Some people love them because they love the stories in any form.

Some people loathe them. After all, can you really improve on some of these classics?

Regardless of fans’ feelings, these reboots aren’t stopping any time soon. It is possible that the entire library of animated classics will see a remake of some sort whether it is a live action reboot or a villain backstory.

The Latest Reboot

Depending on your stance on live action remakes, you will either be overjoyed or distraught to know that the film selected for Disney’s newest reboot recipient is none other than Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Walt Disney’s very first feature length animated classic is up for a makeover.

The plans for this reboot come on the heels of a re-imagining for the Snow White’s Scary Adventure dark ride in Disneyland. It was transformed into Snow White’s Enchanted Wish.

Like most things that undergo change, the ride’s overhaul was met with both praise and criticism. You can read more about the attraction here and here. You can also see a ride through in this post.

What We Know So Far

We do know a few things about the film so far (or should I say: “snow” far?) For one thing Rachel Zegler is slated to play the title character Snow White.

It is also rumored that there will be new songs written for the film. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who worked together on the music for both behind La La Land and The Greatest Showman are rumored to be expanding upon and adding to the film’s original songs.

It is also rumored that Gal Gadot is up for the part of the Evil Queen. You may recognize her from Wonder Woman 1984.

In terms of plot, we know very little. All that has surfaced is that the story will expand upon the original we know from the beloved 1937 film.

  1. The little mermaid reboot is one big political sh*tfest.
    They messed up the whole concept of this beautiful iconic disney classic.
    It totally demotivated me to watch any disney live action movies/remakes ever again.

  2. I am looking forward to see how Disney wokes this movie up.

    If selling the red head in the Pirates ride is bad (though stealing and waterboarding remains acceptable), then poisoning someone must be equally bad.

    Disney also should address the challenges of persons of short stature (Disney uses the term Dwarf) that face inequalities in society today (you may recall that Disney made fun of each individuals personal challenges – e.g. Sleepy, Sneezy, etc).

    Also curious if the Evil Queen Ravenna will still be stabbed by Snow White, or if her named is changed to the Evil Queen Karen to fit today’s mindset.

What do you think?
