We should already be familiar with Rachel Zegler. But, even though what is sure to be her breakout role as Maria in Spielberg’s West Side Story retelling isn’t coming out till winter, Zegler looks like she’s already set for a new, fantastic adventure. Deadline reports the actress is set to star as Snow White in the live-action remake.
This means that yes, we are getting a latina Snow White! And honestly, all you have to do is look at this picture of West Side Story to see it.
Zegler is also set to star in D.C.’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which means she has three upcoming projects to be super excited about. And, if Rachel herself is to be believed, this one …a Disney princess, well, it’s a dream come true:
Production is expected to start next year. The film is set to be directed by Marc Webb. According to Deadline, the film will expand upon the story and music of the original film, which, was Disney’s first animated feature film. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman and Dear Evan Hansen) will write new songs for the movie.
