Seems like no one will be singing “Someday my Prince will come…” in this film!
It has been confirmed this week that Disney currently has a live-action adaptation of the classic fairy take of Rose Red under development. The film was pitched by Evan Daugherty and penned by Justin Merz.
Though Merz orignally wrote the script as a standalone film, Daugherty came up with the idea of connecting Rose Red to the 1937 animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The basic synopsis for the film is: Red Rose “along with the seven dwarves, set out on a quest to wake her sister from a death-like sleep.”
Thus meaning no Prince is necessary on this story…maybe? I mean, how awesome would that be?!
Now time for a German Fairy Tale Lesson:
The original WRITTEN Grimm Brothers fairy starring Rose Red and Snow White as two sisters and one dwarf has NOTHING to do with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This new live-action film is mashing up the characters so don’t get it twisted.
Disney is ALL about the live-action films at the moment specially after the success of Maleficent and Cinderella, upcoming released of The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, and a Prince Charming and Genie-centric films under development.
No information regarding casting, production date, or release date has been announced.
So will you be seeing Rose Red?
