Walt Disney’s live action remake of Snow White, Snow White (2021), is directed by Marc Webb, best known for directing The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as 500 Days of Summer.
Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl on the Train) wrote the script, which expands upon the story and music from the 1938 animated classic. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the duo behind the songs in La La Land, The Greatest Showman, and Dear Evan Hansen, wrote new songs for the movie. All original songs are also included in the film.
The original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs animated film, based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale, was first released in 1937. It was Disney’s inaugural animated feature film and is considered by many to be the best animated movie ever made.
In both the original and live action films, the beautiful and kind hearted princess Snow White charms every creature in the kingdom except one – her jealous stepmother, the Queen. When the Magic Mirror proclaims Snow White the fairest one of all, she must flee into the forest, where she befriends the lovable seven dwarfs – Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, and Dopey. But when the Queen tricks Snow White with an enchanted apple, only the magic of true love’s kiss can save her.
