The 20-year-old will be starring in the live-action Disney movie.
Now, Rachel Ziegler is the talk of the town. The actor killed her just like Maria in the new West side story!
And I’m even more excited for her next role as Snow White!
The film – which will also feature Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen – is the next in the Disney series of live-action adaptations and will be directed by Mark Webb.
Well, in a recent interview with BuzzFeed, Rachel opened up about what she hopes to bring to the role of Snow White. “There’s not much I can say about it besides the fact that Snow White has been constantly criticized,” the 20-year-old said.
Although she is the original Disney Princess and we love her very much, [she’s been] Criticize for having only a prince, who only exists to be saved.”
“And I think our director, Mark Webb, and everyone who’s working on this movie has taken her story and turned it into something much more powerful.”
“I am so excited to be able to bring this to life,” she concluded.
Although most people were genuinely excited to see the actor tap into the role of Snow White, some social media trolls criticized the casting of a Latina woman. Rachel quickly shut it down in a now-deleted tweet.
In a statement, director Mark Webb said, “Rachel’s extraordinary vocal abilities are just the beginning of her talents. Her strength, intelligence, and optimism will become integral to rediscovering the joy in the classic Disney fairy tale.”
