Daily Wire just released a teaser trailer for “Snow White and the Evil Queen,” following backlash over Disney’s upcoming “Snow White,” which is set to star Rachel Zegler.

The conservative media group announced it was making a live-action “Snow White” movie following backlash over Disney’s upcoming live-action “Snow White.”

The movie, titled “Snow White and the Evil Queen” stars YouTuber Brett Cooper as the princess. The story, which is based on the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale, is now in the public domain.

“It’s a story about a princess and a prince, about beauty and vanity, about love and its power to raise us from death to life,” said Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing. “It’s our own adaptation of an ancient fairy tale.” Boreing made the announcement when launching Bentkey, Daily Wire’s new kids’ entertainment brand that seeks to take on Disney+.

“It’s taken 100 years to build Disney,” Boreing added. “We know we aren’t what Disney is today, but we hope in time we might become what they were, once upon a time: a little studio with big ideas and the courage to chase them. … While Disney still uses Walt’s name, they have all but abandoned his legacy.” (Boreing’s statement continued along those lines.)

“I was raised on the original Grimms’ Fairy Tales, so I’m thrilled that we’re bringing this iconic story to life for the next generation!” Cooper said. “Snow White is such a beautiful character, and I’m honored to be playing her. Like all the best fairy tales, this is a story with timeless values, like love, friendship, and kindness, and I can’t wait to share them.” Cooper hosts the Daily Wire-produced show “The Comments Section With Brett Cooper.”

In August, clips of interviews of Rachel Zegler, who was cast as Snow White in Disney’s upcoming live-action version of the film, had resurfaced on social media, which caused quite a bit of backlash for the young star.

Last year, the 22-year-old actress was interviewed about the role, admitting that she “hated” the original 1937 movie and thought the storyline was “weird.” Zegler also said she thought the Prince character was a “stalker” and that her version of the character was “…not going to be saved by the prince and she’s not going to be dreaming about true love.”

Snow White and the Evil Queen” is coming sometime in 2024. Disney’s “Snow White” is set for theaters on March 22, 2024. The studio had no immediate comment on the Daily Wire project.
