Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Disney Special Platinum Edition), from Amazon
Yes, that’s right, there are a total of three Snow White movies being made: Relativity Media’s one with Lily Collins, the dark version starring Kristen Stewart, and now, a Disney film with Natalie Portman rumored as the famous princess.
The movie is called The Order of Seven, and will be directed by Michael Gracey, who normally works with visual effects. As it turns out, Disney has been developing this “China-set epic” for nine years, but production won’t start until next year. It will be an action film that focuses more on the seven dwarfs, but won’t be like the original Grimm Brothers tale:
In this iteration, the seven are a 19th century-set disparate band of international warriors belonging to a centuries-old order who have lost their way. Their meeting with an Englishwoman being chased by an ancient evil is the catalyst for their redemption.
The Huffington Post provides more about Snow White’s role:
An Englishwoman goes to Hong Kong for her father’s funeral and realizes that her evil stepmother was plotting her murder, at which point she turns to the warriors for protection.
So Lily Collin’s movie hits theaters on March 16, KStew on June 1, and Natalie and her unknown cast-mates in probably about two years. Is that enough space between Snow White films for you, Lovelies?
At least this version sounds majorly different than the other two. I must say though, if anyone can pull this off, it’s Disney.
