She’s dreaming about becoming the leader she knows she can be and the leader that her late father told her that she could be if she was fearless, fair, brave and true,” Today reported at the time. In other words, it isn’t an old Disney version of Snow White. It’s Wonder Woman White pushing men aside because, as the old feminist slogan goes, women need men like a fish needs a bicycle. GUURRRL POWER!
After fans began blasting the coming film based on her descriptions, Zegler retreated to the race card and insisted that she was fighting against racists who hate her because she is a Latino being cast as the traditionally Caucasian Snow White. Her comments even brought the son of the director of the 1937 classic into the news to take Zegler to task for disparaging his father’s famous work. David Hand, whose father, also named David, collaborated with Walt Disney to craft the beloved 1937 film, said that the studio’s actions would have both his dad and Walt Disney “turning in their grave,” according to the U.K. Telegraph. Ultimately, Disney announced big changes to its film after being stung by the criticism, so it remains to be seen just how woke it is going to be. The film is already getting a rival reply, too, after the conservative Daily Wire announced it is producing a rival Snow White film that is more traditional. “For almost a century, Disney built goodwill and trust with parents and created the greatest library of content in history,” Daily Wire co-CEO Jeremy Boreing wrote in an Oct. 16 post on X. “But Walt Disney’s vision no longer animates the company he founded.” “Today, woke ideologues run the House of Mouse, and they have abused the trust and goodwill that was their legacy,” Boreing added. The first films the new production company will produce is a classic Snow White story to be titled, “Snow White and the Evil Queen.” quarter of a billion dollars with box office bombs including “Strange World,” “Lightyear,” “Elemental,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” “Little Mermaid,” and “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.” Every single one of these films have woke plots, characters, and scenes and each has lost money for the studio. So, it’s the perfect example of the new adage, “go woke, go broke,” as Disney is drowning in red tape, massive layoffs, and a dwindling fan base.
