Disney unveiled some of its upcoming movies on Saturday, including a live-action remake of the 1937 classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” featuring Israeli superstar Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen.
The preview took place at the D23Expo in California and the movie is set to be released next year.. Yussss…can’t wait!!
Based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale from the 19th century, the story features Snow White, a princess who lost her parents as a child and is raised by the Evil Queen, who is obsessed with her own beauty and constantly fears her stepdaughter will outshine her.
Disney’s 1937 film was the first animated movie the company ever made.
Some 85 years later, Gadot will play the character of the Evil Queen in the company’s new feature, alongside West Side Story star Rachel Zegler as Snow White.

Zegler said adapting the classic tale to the 21st century was “an honor” and that the film is about Snow White “finding a sense of agency so she can be a just ruler and wonderful queen.”
The adaptation will feature original songs from the Oscar-winning La La Land duo of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a new male lead character named Jonathan, played by Tony winner Andrew Burnap, according to Deadline. Marc Platt is producing the film
