Reports confirm that Disney is currently preparing for the live action musical adaptation of Snow White.

Looks like history is in the remaking lately. With Disney adapting some of its best tales into live action feature films, including the likes of Cinderella, Maleficent and even The Jungle Book with the help of CGI animation, it is just a question of who will hold the next spot. The already released feature films have been huge successes worldwide with a great domestic and international earnings for Disney. 

It led the studio to outline the plan to adopt more of its animated movies into live action features, which includes; Cruella de Ville, Aladdin and Mulan. The live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is scheduled to release in May, 2017.

So the next movie that Disney is in works for live action adaptation is Snow White. It was Disney’s first ever animated movie which was a wide acclaimed success.

It was a huge hit around the world, it received an honorary Oscar and it was the first of the Brothers Grimm story to receive the Disney ‘happy ever after’ makeover. 

Confirmed by multiple sources, the Disney studio is currently developing the live action adaptation of Snow White. The Hollywood Reporter reported that the screen writer for The Girl on the Train Erin Cressida Wilson is being pursued to write the script.

La La Land’s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul have been confirmed to be on board to write new original songs for the film. Marc Platt, whose recent credits include the latest remake, Mary Poppins Returns; is also joining the Snow White crew to produce.

The news about cast and director are still unconfirmed and it will be great to speculate who will be iconic Snow White in this upcoming live action feature film. The movie has been confirmed to be a musical.
