Snow White, Disney


Another Disney classic is coming to life!

E! News has learned that Snow White will be getting a live-action reboot in the near future.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to break the news, confirming that The Girl on the Train writer Erin Cressida Wilson is in negotiations to take on the script, while Benj Pasek and Justin Paul—who most recently wrote the lyrics for La La Land—are on board to pen new music for the film. Marc Platt recently worked on Mary Poppins Returns and is also joining the Snow White crew to produce.

Meanwhile, Snow White was Disney's first animated feature film, originally released in 1937. It is widely considered one of the company's most successful films and took home an honorary Oscar at the 11th Academy Awards.

The news comes on the heels of several other live-action successes, including Maleficent, The Jungle Book and Cinderella.

The Beauty and the Beast is set to be released next with Emma Watson playing Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. It will be released in March 2017.

Mulan's live-action release will come in November of 2018.
