Rachel Zegler The latest in Disney’s canon of live-action remakes, Snow White, is in early pre-production in the UK.  

Rachel Zegler stars in the title role; she recently made her feature debut in Steven Spielberg’s much-anticipated West Side Story (pictured), released at the end of this year.

Zegler also co-stars with Zachary Levi in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Mouse House is already in production in the UK on another live-action remake: Pinocchio, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis. Disney has had worldwide success with live-action remakes, including the recent Cruella and The Little Mermaid; the latter recently wrapped production in the UK after a lengthy, stop-start shoot.
