Peter Dinklage slams Disney for 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' remake, calls it 'backward'

"Maybe my attempt to speak for my community has not been ‘loud’ enough," said Peter Dinklage.

'Game of Thrones' star, actor Peter Dinklage has called out Disney for remaking their 1937 animated classic 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'.

Disney recently announced that Latina star Rachel Zegler would be starring in a ‘Snow White’ remake, playing the princess alongside Gal Gadot who will play the role of the Evil Queen.

In an interview on Marc Maron’s 'WTF' podcast to promote his role in ‘Cyrano’, Dinklage said that while some fans have praised Disney for the racially diverse casting, they missed the larger issue of the way the original film portrays differently-abled people.

Dinklage called the film's remake hypocritical as he called out the studio, for taking pride in casting a Latina actress but keeping its backward storyline the same. Dinklage further stated that maybe his attempt to speak for his community has not been ‘loud’ enough.

The original ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ was based on an 1812 fairy tale from 'The Brothers Grimm', though the dwarfs in the original story lived in a cottage, not a cave. Disney had also been criticized as being ableist for portraying that dwarfs have lesser intelligence and Snow White was seeing them as children.
