On October 31, 2016, Variety reported that Walt Disney Pictures is developing a live-action remake of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs', with Erin Cressida Wilson being in talks to write the screenplay.

On May 29, 2021, it was reported that Webb was still attached to direct the film but would not begin work on it until later that year due to his schedule with the TV series 'Just Beyond'.
CastingIn June 2021, Rachel Zegler was cast in the titular role, and in November, Gal Gadot was cast as the Evil Queen. Later that month, Greta Gerwig was confirmed to be writing the screenplay. On December 7, 2021, during the interview with ExtraTV, Rachel Zegler revealed that Snow White will be a lot stronger than the original. A new casting search has been announced for a young actress to star as Young Snow White in the live-action remake. On January 12, 2022, it was announced that Andrew Burnap was cast in the lead male role as a new character named Jonathan who is described as a "Robin Hood-like" person who serves as Snow White's love interest and "[follows] her into battle" and will have a singing role. Martin Klebba revealed at the 2022 Denver Fan Expo, that he would be portraying Grumpy in the film; Klebba previously played similar dwarf roles in prior productions based on the "Snow White" fairy tale: as Friday in the 2001 made-for-television film 'Snow White: The Fairest of Them All' and in the 2012 fantasy comedy 'Mirror Mirror' as Butcher.

Peter Dinklage's comments
In January 2022, during an interview on Marc Maron's 'WTF' podcast, actor Peter Dinklage, who has a form of dwarfism and played dwarfish characters in his career, commented on the upcoming live-action 'Snow White' remake, dismissing it as a "backward story". He said:
In response to Dinklage's comments, Disney clarified that "to avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we are taking a different approach with these seven characters and have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community." The film was also retitled to simply 'Snow White', due to the absence of the titular Seven Dwarfs from the original film. Despite this, with Martin Klebba's confirmation about his role as Grumpy, it is implied that the seven dwarfs are actually still appearing in the film.
FilmingFilming for 'Snow White' was originally set to begin in March 2020 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. However, filming was delayed to the mid or late 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was later officially announced that filming will begin in 2022. In August 2021, it was announced that filming will take place in the United Kingdom from March to July 2022. In March 2022, set photos leaked online, as filming commenced the week of the 14th. A fire damaged the production set on March 15, 2022, at Pinewood Studios; the stage was under construction when a tree reportedly caught alight, leading to a huge blaze. Also, 'Variety' said that "No filming was underway" a Disney source confirmed. The shooting schedule was also reconfigured in order for Zegler to travel to Los Angeles to present at the 94th Academy Awards ceremony on March 27, 2022 in support of her 'West Side Story' colleagues. While Zegler was attending the ceremony, Gadot began filming her scenes. During a podcast interview with 'Forbes', Gadot revealed that she will sing and dance in the film. On April 22, 2022, Gadot confirmed that she finished filming her scenes. On May 20, 2022, set photos were leaked showing Zegler in costume as Snow White. On July 13, 2022, Zegler revealed that filming had wrapped.

Gadot said about her role that playing the Evil Queen was "very different than what [she] had done before. [She is] used to playing the other end of where the heart should be", but she found it very "delightful" to "get under her skin". The title logo of the film was also revealed.
