Disney has shifted focus from Snow White to her sister Rose Red.
The new live-action fairytale slots Rose Red into the original tale of Snow White And The Seven Dwarves. She will appear in the third act of the story, written by Justin Merz and Evan Daugherty.
In the retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Snow White takes a bite of the poisonous apple, so Rose Red teams up with Grumpy and his dwarf friends to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.
Daugherty has previous form, having writing for Snow White And The Huntsman, while the new movie's producer Tripp Vinson is also attached to two other Disney fairytale films — a prequel to Aladdin, and Prince Charming.
I know this is the kind of film my younger sister and I could get into. At the end of the day, whether it's the fictitious Snow White or myself, it seems we are both lucky to have sisters that would go the distance for us.
