Gal Gadot will reportedly play the Evil Queen in Disney’s upcoming movie adaptation of Snow White.
Deadline reports that Disney always wanted Gadot for the role, and a deal was finalized this week after scheduling was worked out. The movie is expected to film in 2022.
Gadot will join West Side Story and Shazam! 2 actress Rachel Zegler, who has been cast as Snow White.
Deadline says Disney’s new Snow White movie will feature an “expanded” story with different music than the classic Snow White movie from the ’30s. New music has been written by The Greatest Showman songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
Gadot is currently filming the thriller movie Heart of Stone and is also developing a Cleopatra movie, according to Deadline.
The actress can be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Red Notice, which is now playing in theaters. Her next movie will be Disney’s Death on the Nile, which opens in theaters in February 2022.
But don’t worry DC fans, it’s also been confirmed that Gadot will reprise Wonder Woman for her third solo movie.
Disney’s next live-action remake with a release date is The Little Mermaid, which hits theaters on May 26, 2023. Disney has also wrapped filming on a live-action remake of Pinocchio and a Peter Pan & Wendy movie. Those two movies are set for a debut on Disney+ and it’s possible they will be released sometime in 2022.
Disney also announced a follow-up to their recent movie remake of The Lion King that will focus on Mufasa.
