“You call yourself progressive on the one hand, but on the other, you continue to perpetuate this rotten story of seven dwarves living together in a cave…”
After Cinderella, The jungle Book Where The beauty and the Beast, Disney is working on a live-action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfsedited by Marc Webb (500 days together). And that deeply irritates Peter Dinklage.
During the podcast “WTF” by Marc Maronthe former star of Game Of Thrones blasted this remake, due “of the fucking rotten representation of the dwarfs” in fairy tales.
He explains : “There’s a lot of hypocrisy in all of this… Without offending anyone, I must admit that I’m surprised to see that they are very proud to choose a Latina actress to take over the role of Snow White (Rachel Zegler of West Side StoryEditor’s note). But at the same time, you always tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs ! Take a step back and look at what you’re doing… It doesn’t make sense.”
Peter Dinklage on the end of Game of Thrones: “We offended a lot of people”
Because according to Peter DinklageHollwwood says to himself “progressive on the one hand, but on the other, keep perpetuating this rotten story of seven dwarfs living together in a cave… But what the hell are you doing, man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause all this time? I guess I’m not strong enough.”
Unworthy, Peter Dinklage does not digest that the stereotypes on the people of small sizes are thus taken up in new films. “I don’t know what studio it is, but they were so proud to cast Rachel Zegler…All my love and respect to the actress and everyone who thought they were doing the right thing. But I I want to say: what the hell are you doing?
Note that Disney has not yet announced anything about the dwarfs in its remake. At present, nothing says that the film will disguise 7 small actors as minors… Besides, Peter Dinklage still has hope and fingers crossed that this new Snow White “have a cool or progressive twist on it…”
Filming for the film is due to begin this year.
