Disney’s upcoming remake of the beloved classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, is facing opposition from an unexpected source. David Hale Hand, son of the film’s supervising director, David Dodd Hand, has expressed his disapproval of the upcoming remake. Hand believes that the remake does not show respect for what Disney and his father accomplished with the original film.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs holds a special place in the hearts of Disney fans, as it was the company’s first animated feature film. The tale of Snow White and her seven dwarf companions has become an iconic part of Disney’s history. However, since the announcement of the remake, there has been significant backlash from fans, expressing concerns ranging from casting choices to the removal of dwarf characters.
Hand has been an outspoken critic of the remake, particularly pointing out Disney’s introduction of new and “woke” elements into the story. He argues that instead of remaking classics, Disney should focus on creating new stories and characters that can captivate audiences. Hand believes that the remake disregards the creative thought process of the original characters and dilutes the impact of the story.
The Snow White remake features Rachel Zegler as Snow White, Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen, Ansu Kabia as the Huntsman, and introduces a new character named Jonathan, portrayed by Andrew Burnap. The casting choices have been a subject of debate among fans, with some expressing disappointment at the lack of diversity in the main roles.
Despite the backlash, Disney remains committed to releasing the remake on March 22, 2024. It remains to be seen whether the studio will address the concerns raised by fans and Hand. As the release date approaches, the debate surrounding the remake continues to divide Disney enthusiasts, who anxiously await the unveiling of the modernized version of this cherished tale.
