Despite first saying they were false, The Walt Disney Company revealed that the leaked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs photographs are from The Walt Disney Company’s production of the next film starring Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot.
Along with the dwarfs, images of the film’s stars Rachel Zegler and Andrew Burnap in costume were also taken. Zegler’s Snow White resembles Little Red Riding Hood more than Snow White.
“The photos are fake and not from our production,” a Disney representative told The Daily Beast after the release. We are currently attempting to get a correction from the Daily Mail.”
“This article has been amended since initial publication to correctly identify the actress portraying Snow White as an extra who stood in for post-production photography,” the Daily Mail would note. Stand-ins for Rachel Zegler and Andrew Burnap were utilized in these photographs, according to Disney. We are delighted to explain this matter.”
Following the explanation by the Daily Mail, a Disney official confirmed The Independent that the photographs were actually from the Snow White production. “The images that ran [in the Daily Mail] are not official film photos,” the spokesman stated. These shows contain stand-ins for some of the talent and do not include Rachel Zegler or Andrew Burnap.”
These leaked set photographs appear to confirm Rachel Zegler’s claims regarding the upcoming film. Zegler stated during The Walt Disney Company’s D23 presentation for the film that it would have a “modern edge.”
“I just mean that it’s no longer 1937, and we absolutely wrote a Snow White-“
“She’s not going to be saved by the prince,” Gal Gadot remarked. “She’s not going to be saved by the prince, and she’s not going to be dreaming about true love,” Zegler added. She fantasizes about being the leader she knows she is capable of becoming. And the leader her late father said she could be if she was fearless, fair, bold, and loyal.”
“And so it’s just a really incredible story for, I think, young people everywhere to see themselves in,” Zegler said.
