“West Side Story”In the live-action remake, Rachel Zegler played Snow White, a breakout star.

“They were very proud to cast a Latino actress as Snow White. But you’re still telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Makes no sense to me,”Dinklage claimed.

Comedian Brad Williams echoed Dinklage’s concerns about stereotypes.

“We don’t all hang out in a cabin together. We don’t all have nicknames that have to do with emotions. We’re not all miners. I’ve never carried a pick axe to work, and I’ve lived in some harsh neighborhoods,”Williams spoke to Inside Edition.

Disney’s original 1937 movie is a Disney classic. It’s known for its art and timeless music. “Heigh Ho”And “Whistle While You Work.”

Disney stated in a statement: “To avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we are taking a different approach with these seven characters and have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community.”

Variety deputy TV editor Michael Schneider spoke to Inside Edition about the remake.

“Disney hasn’t given specific examples of how they might re-approach the dwarves in ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,’ but they said that it is going to be a very different version of what we saw in the animated version all those years ago. What that is remains to be seen,”Schneider.
