Disney prides itself on being a (supposedly) progressive company.
As we covered just a few days ago, Peter Dinklage was recently on Marc Maron’s podcast talking about the news that Disney was remaking Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Dinklage said, “I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. You’re still telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me. You’re progressive in one way, and you’re still making that fucking backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together, what the fuck are you doing, man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox? I guess I’m not loud enough.”
Now, Disney has an answer for him, and it’s pretty straightforward.
