Zegler — who also leads Hunger Games prequel A ballad about songbirds and snakesin theaters from November 17 – previously divided on X (formerly Twitter) from Snow White that “the love this movie brought me is magical”.
“We really took a deep dive into fixing and creating a modern Snow White woman,” she told PEOPLE in 2022. The original iteration of the princess “doesn’t work for today’s audience,” she admitted. “I think she’s 13 in the original cartoon, so we started there and said, ‘No, she’s 18 in this one.’ She is a little more independent.”
In a previous statement, director Webb said of Zegler, “Rachel’s extraordinary vocal abilities are just the beginning of her gifts. Her strength, intelligence and optimism will become integral to the rediscovery of joy in this classic Disney fairy tale.”
