The magic mirror would have a hard time answering the question of who is more wickedly beautiful between Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen and Rachel Zegler as Snow White. According to the latest reports from Variety, Gal Gadot is in the final stages of negotiations to play the role of the Evil Queen, who is also the stepmother of Snow White, in Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
There have been many speculations that Gal Gadot will be playing the role of the evil queen in Snow White. However, according to a close source, Rachel Zegler will still be portraying Snow White. Zegler, a rising young star known for her roles in West Side Story and Shazam! Fury of the Gods, was selected for the lead role back in June 2021. Disney’s live-action version of Snow White will feature Zegler as the iconic character.
Although there has been much debate, Rachel Zegler will still play Snow White. Many fans of the story were worried about the beauty of Gal Gadot, who plays the evil queen, overshadowing Snow White’s looks. However, Gadot’s previous fame as a superheroine in DC’s Wonder Woman franchise makes her perfect for the role of a manipulative and malicious queen who is always trying to harm Snow White. In the timeless fairy tale, which was first adapted into Disney’s first animated feature film in 1937, the evil queen tries to trick Snow White into eating a poisoned apple out of jealousy for her beauty. The villainous character also delivers the famous line: “Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”
As soon as the news was announced, audiences were concerned that Snow White’s beauty would be overshadowed by her stepmother. Deadline reports that the live-action version of Snow White will feature more new songs than the original animated film, composed by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the duo who created the music for The Greatest Showman (2017). Disney has been developing the live-action Snow White since 2016, with other remakes currently in the works, including The Little Mermaid starring Halle Bailey, Pinocchio with Tom Hanks, and Lilo and Stitch directed by Jon M. Chu. The decision to cast an actress who doesn’t resemble the traditional image of Snow White is seen as daring, but Rachel Zegler has been chosen to play the lead, with Gal Gadot set to play the evil stepmother who tries to harm Snow White out of jealousy of her beautiful looks. With the help of the seven dwarfs, Snow White escapes from the queen and ultimately finds love, living happily ever after.
Gal Gadot is a highly sought after actress who has become a household name in the film industry. She is currently a crowd-pleaser as she continues to play lead roles in several high-profile projects, such as the upcoming movie Heart of Stone directed by Tom Harper. In addition, she is set to star in Cleopatra, a film about the legendary queen, which is currently in development. Fans will also be able to see her alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Red Notice on Netflix in November.
