Disney’s Making A Live Action Version Of “Snow White”

The newest Disney animated classic to get the live action treatment is the one that started it all, “Snow White”.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

Disney is ready to take on another of its classic fairytales with a new musical, live-action version of Snow White.

Erin Cressida Wilson, who penned the adaptation of The Girl on the Train, is in negotiations to write the script for the film, which will expand upon the story and music from the beloved animated classic.

The movie will include new songs, with songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who most recently wrote the lyrics for La La Land, attached to pen the new music.

Marc Platt, who also is working with Disney on Mary Poppins Returns, is attached to produce.

After the overwhelming positive response from what we have seen so far with Disney’s live action “Beauty And The Beast”, I would expect Disney to make a more faithful adaption to their own original animated classic. So dont expect another “Mirror Mirror” or “Snow White And The Huntsman”

The Snow White and the Huntsman morphed into a Frozen retelling with The Huntsman Winters War. It actually wasn’t bad. Disney needs a twofer.
