Disney is having a lot of success with their big screen live-action adaptations of their animated movies, and now they are throwing another into development. THR is reporting that Disney is moving forward with a new film adaptation of Snow White and the studio looking to hire The Girl on the Train screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson to write the script.
Snow White was the very first animated feature film that was released by Disney and it came out in 1937. The original movie is actually pretty dark and terrifying, especially the end. According to the report, the new film "will expand upon the story and music from the beloved animated classic." It will also feature new songs created by songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who most recently wrote the lyrics for the upcoming film La La Land.
There have been a few film adaptations of Snow White over the years, with recent incarnations being Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman. I wasn't really a big fan of either of those films, but I think fans of the classic animated movie can rest assured that Disney will deliver a solid live-action adaptation of Snow White. The question is, will it be as dark as the original or will they lighten it up?
I guess at this point we should just expect Disney to adapt every animated movie they've ever made into a live-action film. But for some damn reason, they still won't adapt Gargoyles into a movie! That's something I will just never understand.
