Our Dream Cast for Disney’s Upcoming Live-Action ‘Snow White’


With the recent news that Gal Gadot is slated to play the Evil Queen in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, it’s time for the latest installment in the series that tells you our dream cast for highly-anticipated projects. But with Gadot set to play the villain and Rachel Zegler already onboard in the title role, the film already has some pretty ideal casting in place. So this installment of Our Dream Cast comes with a twist — we’re giving you our top casting picks for actors to play the role of the Prince opposite Zegler’s Snow White. Keep reading for three names we think could believably play opposite the 20-year-old actor, along with why they’d be perfect for the role. 

 

1. Jordan Fisher 

The original 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs included its fair share of singing, and should the live-action adaption follow suit, Fisher will be ready with a vocal ability that’s already been proven by a number of projects. The 27-year-old actor took over the roles of both John Laurens and Philip Hamilton from Anthony Ramos in the Broadway production of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, which is just one credit on a theater resume stacked with musical experience. And then there’s his ability to build believable onscreen chemistry. Perhaps you caught him in Netflix’s second installment of its To All the Boys film series, P.S. I Still Love You, in which he played opposite Lana Condor’s Lara Jean as her love interest John Ambrose. Or maybe you saw him in another Netflix film, Work It, as Jake Taylor to Sabrina Carpenter’s Quinn Ackerman. In both, Fisher seemed to effortlessly create some serious sparks with his co-stars, and we think the actor would bring the same ability as the Prince to connect with Zegler’s Snow White. 

 

2. Mason Temple

The 25-year-old actor’s breakout role was as Hunter Chen in Netflix’s hit series Ginny & Georgia, in which he showed off both his singing chops and dancing abilities. When Hunter performs a tap-dancing number in episode seven of season one, Temple somehow brought just the right mix of charm and confidence to give us some big prince energy. The actor’s only two other IMDb credits before landing the role were for “Young Zombie #2 in an episode of The CW’s iZombie and “Boy at School” in an episode of the History Channel’s Six. Meaning, Temple made a huge career jump with his series regular role in Ginny & Georgia, just as Zegler did by landing the part of Maria in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming remake of West Side Story for her first-ever on-camera role. (For those unfamiliar with the young actor’s overnight success, the casting came shortly after the then 17-year-old posted to Twitter a video of her belting “Shallow” that went viral.) So besides being relatively close in age, both Zegler and Temple could bring a similar “fresh face” quality to the Disney characters of Snow White and her prince. 

 

3. Harry Styles

Many may know Styles as the former member of One Direction and now solo artist behind hits like “Watermelon Sugar” and “Sign of the Times.” But the 27-year-old has also worked as an actor, appearing in Christopher Nolan’s 2017 World War II drama Dunkirk as Alex and Chloé Zhao’s Eternals as Eros. And Styles is no stranger to the idea of playing Disney royalty in a live-action adaptation  — he was in talks to play Prince Eric in the upcoming Halle Bailey-led The Little Mermaid. While that casting didn’t come to fruition, rumors are already circulating that he’s being considered for the Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It may be because Styles is known for his emphasis on the importance of treating people with kindness — whether it’s singing a song on the topic or writing one super fan about it after feeding her fish — which definitely fits the Disney bill. We think the artist would bring a certain sweetness to the role that would match the essence of the original animated Prince, as well as a bit of edge to round out the character. 

 

Time will tell if Fisher, Temple, or Styles wind up landing the role of the Prince in the upcoming live-action adaption. But considering the other cast members already attached — as well as having Marc Webb in the director’s chair — Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is already shaping up to be a dream project, one worthy of bringing to life the first feature-length animated film from Disney that started it all.
