The live action of snow-white has already begun to stir up various controversies, although for the moment only one photograph concerning the cast has been released and not much has been said about the plot yet. One of the biggest problems seems to be the magical creatures that will replace the dwarfs from the original fairy tale. Just about these last characters Peter Dinklage expressed himself a few months ago who, after the announcement of the live action, had attacked Disney for wanting to continue telling a retrograde story, which ended up reinforcing stereotypes against people with dwarfism: “I literally didn’t feel offended at all, but I was taken aback. They were very proud to have chosen a Latina actress for the role of Snow White, but they are still telling the story of Snow White and the seven dwarfs. Take a step back and see what you are doing there. It makes no sense to me. You’re progressive in a way, but you’re still telling that fucking retrograde story about seven dwarfs living together in a cave“. At this point, Disney had said they wanted to take a different approach with the characters in questionand wanting to interact with community members.
Peter Dinklage had spoken out against the “retrograde story” told in the original fairy tale of snow-white
To respond to Peter Dinklage was the ultra-conservative journalist Megyn Kellywho stated: “Last year (Dinklage) objected to this ‘fucking retrograde story’ edthat’s when Disney announced they were replacing the dwarfs.So great job, Peter! You made money, you became the most famous dwarf in America andthen you screwed up the available roles for six other dwarves who wanted to work and get paid just like you always have“. It seems, however, that the journalist is not the only one who thinks this way. The star of Jackass Wee Man in fact, he told TMZ what he thinks about the fact that Disney wanted to replace the characters of the seven dwarfs with actors of average height, stating: “It’s a very interesting question and we’re talking about it a lot these days. Our artistic category is already threatened by artificial intelligence and this is another blow. And so you take other work away from people who could do this role. Just in recent days we also talked about the problem in Wonka, where Hugh Grant had the role of Umpa Lumpa”. An opinion, that of Wee Man, which differs greatly from that of Peter Dinklage.
