Rachel Zegler’s ‘Snow White’ Saga: Controversy and Casting Shake-up
On September 25, 2023, Inside the Magic, a Disney fan blog, published an article under the headline, “Report Claims Disney Officially Removes Rachel Zegler from ‘Snow White’ Live Action.”
Scheduled for a theatrical release on March 22, 2024, the live-action adaptation of “Snow White” stars Rachel Zegler from “West Side Story” as Snow White and Gal Gadot, known for “Wonder Woman,” as the Evil Queen.
The article, however, raises questions about the authenticity of the claim. It primarily relied on a TikTok video from an unverified source as evidence, noting that no credible source was provided within the video. Therefore, the reported statement of Rachel Zegler’s removal from the film remains unconfirmed.
In essence, while the possibility of cast changes in movies like the live-action “Snow White” exists, there is currently insufficient concrete evidence to support this particular rumor. The article also mentioned that they had reached out to Disney for clarification and would update their report with any additional information.
Regarding the TikTok video, it garnered significant attention with over 2.4 million views. However, the person behind the video lacks credentials as an entertainment journalist or credible source.
The speculation surrounding Rachel Zegler’s potential removal from “Snow White” stemmed from controversies sparked by her previous remarks. In interviews from 2022, Zegler had made comments that attracted backlash on TikTok and other social media platforms. These comments included her statements about the film’s departure from the original animated classic and the empowerment of the character Snow White, as well as her critique of the prince character’s role.
However, it’s important to clarify that the discussions about Zegler’s potential removal from “Snow White” have no official correlation with her casting in “Paddington 3.” Initially cast for a role in the film, according to reports, she has been removed from the project due to ongoing Hollywood strikes, which have affected various productions in the industry. Whether Zegler will be recast in “Paddington 3” is also yet to be confirmed by the studio.
