The seven dwarves in the film will be referred to as 'magical creatures'

Walt Disney will be “spinning in his cryonic chamber” over woke plans to replace the seven dwarves with “magical creatures” in their new Snow White film.

Images obtained by the Daily Mail show Snow White’s seven sidekicks to be multi-racial, multi-gender and of differing heights.

They are also being referred to as “magical creatures”.

The cast were spotted shooting scenes in Bedfordshire last week.

Speaking on GB News, political commentator Paul Duddridge says Disney’s attempts to appear more inclusive are in turn making the organisation less so.

He told Patrick Christys: “Walt Disney will be spinning in his cryonic chamber. The attempts at inclusivity actually exclude.

“There aren’t any dwarves, but if you go back to its origins, it is Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, but it is being misrepresented deliberately.

“The good news is, the inclusivity executives at Disney, Netflix and Warner Bros have all exited those companies in the past six weeks.

“I think that the signs are good for the future, corporations are getting the message that they can’t keep tinkering with these historic things in these ways.”

Duddridge made reference to the rumour that the founder of Disney had his corpse frozen in a cryonic chamber containing liquid nitrogen to be revived at a later date.

The actress entrusted with bringing the Disney princess to life is Rachel Zegler.

Peter Dinklage, an actor with dwarfism, has previously criticised the story, saying on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast in January: “They’re still telling that backwards story of seven dwarves living in a cave… what are they doing, man?”

A Disney spokesperson commented in response: “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.”

Of the seven “magical creatures” spotted filming for the production, only one appears to have dwarfism, while the other six appear to be fully-sized.

The remake will not feature a Prince Charming and also aim to portray a “stronger” Snow White.
