Heigh-Ho! Greta Gerwig is Penning the Script for Disney’s Live-Action Snow White Remake

It’s an especially high-stakes project for Disney. In the pantheon of classic Disney princesses, Snow White holds a special place. Inspired by the Brothers Grimm story of the same name, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves famously became the first-ever animated film to hit cinemas when it premiered in 1937, going on to influence directors ranging from Orson Welles to Federico Fellini. As New York Times critic Frank S. Nugent tellingly wrote in his ’30s review, “If you miss it, you’ll be missing the 10 best pictures of 1938.” Walt Disney’s take on the 19th-century German fairytale ultimately became the highest-grossing film ever at that point—cementing his status as a Hollywood power-player in the process.

Even more thrilling is the involvement of writer-director Greta Gerwig, who’s already proven how great she is at breathing new life into old stories.
