We all love a Disney live-action remake, and the lead for Snow White has finally been found!
It's been close to 90 years since we first saw Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on the moving picture screen, and now it's finally getting a well overdue live-action remake.
But mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest actor of them all?
Meet 20 year old American actor, singer & Youtuber, Rachel Zegler.
The West Side Story and Shazam! Fury Of The Gods actress has snatched up the highly sought after role, and it seems she's been poised to play the part of a Disney Princess her entire life, posting a picture of her dressed as The Little Mermaid's Ariel and tweeting 'i wanna be a real disney princess' back in 2017.

Zegler is the latest female lead to take on an iconic Disney Princess role, following Lily James as Cinderella, Emma Watson as Belle, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, and Halle Bailey as Ariel.
Marc Webb, director of the upcoming film and the man behind 500 Days of Summer and The Amazing Spider-Man, is excited to get her in front of the camera. “Rachel’s extraordinary vocal abilities are just the beginning of her gifts. Her strength, intelligence and optimism will become an integral part of rediscovering the joy in this classic Disney fairytale,” Webb said in a statement.
Production is expected to begin early 2022.
