David Hand's son, also named David Hand, said that Disney's live-action version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was a "disgrace" to the work his father and Walt Disney did on the original. Hand thinks it's insulting that Disney is putting "woke things" into the new Snow White, which he doesn't agree with.

Disney is making a new live-action version of Snow White, but not everyone is happy about it. From the start, "Snow White" has had a lot of bad press. First, Rachel Zegler's role as the lead was attacked because she is Latina. Peter Dinklage, on the other hand, said that the live-action version was a "fucking backwards story" that hurt the feelings of people who are short. Disney later said that the movie wouldn't be "reinforcing stereotypes" about people with different abilities.
Now, the son of Walt Disney, who made the original cartoon movie in 1937, says that Walt Disney himself would not like the movie's new "woke" direction. David Hand's late father, who also had the same name, was the director of the first movie. In the 1990s, David Hand worked as an artist for Disney.
In an interview, David Hand, whose father, also named David Hand, was one of the co-directorsof the cartoon Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from 1937, said that the new movie didn't "respect" the original.
It’s a whole different concept and I just totally disagree with it, and I know my dad and Walt would also very much disagree with it.... I disagree with this whole new concept. [It's a] disgrace [Disney is] trying to do something new with something that was such a great success earlier … their thoughts are just so radical now. They change the stories, they change the thought process of the characters … they’re making up new woke things and I’m just not into any of that. I find it quite frankly a bit insulting [what] they may have done with some of these classic films … There’s no respect for what Disney did and what my dad did … I think Walt and he would be turning in their graves.- David Hand
Hand's words seem to show how some people feel about the live-action remake of Snow White and the changes Disney is making to it compared to the animated version. Aside from casting Zegler, the story of Snow White will be different from the original. The main character, Snow White, will have a bigger part in the story. Disney is also taking a different approach to the Seven Dwarves after star Peter Dinklage said that the way they were portrayed in the original movie was offensive.
The live-action Snow White movie is set to come out in 2024. However, some facts about the project have come out that have stirred up controversy. This includes making changes to the seven dwarfs to make them more diverse. Snow White actress Rachel Zegler has also said that the version will have a "modern edge" because it's "no longer 1937."
The trouble with Snow White is similar to the trouble with Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, which was attacked for putting a Black woman, Halle Bailey, in the role of Ariel. Also, Snow White hasn't shown any video yet, so the criticism of the movie is only based on what Zegler, Gadot, and other people involved with the movie have said. Even though it's rare, Snow White might not be as controversial once the first footage of the movie comes out.
David Hand, whose father was one of the directors of Disney's 1937 movie "Snow White," is upset about the planned live-action remake of the fairy tale. He says that Disney's plans are "woke" and "insulting." In a new interview, Hand said that his father, who was also named David Hand, and Walt Disney wouldn't like "Snow White," which will be released in 2024 and star Latina actor Rachel Zegler.
Even though the public hasn't seen a single frame of the new movie, Hand isn't the only one who doesn't like it. Conservatives were upset that Zegler was cast as Snow White and that the seven dwarfs were more diverse in terms of race and gender.
