UPDATE: It's come to our attention that this is actually an old video from last year, and Zegler is not actually discussing Snow White at all here.
Rachel Zegler (Shazam! Fury of the Gods, West Side Story) is set to play the title role in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of Snow White, and recent interview clips (conducted prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike) with the actress have not gone over particularly well with a certain online contingent.
The main criticisms seem to stem from the actress admitting that she wasn't a big fan of the original animated movie as a kid (because it scared her), and only watched it all the way through recently. Zegler also pointed out that some aspects of the animated classic haven't really aged very well, noting that certain plot points - including the "stalker Prince" - have been updated for a modern audience.
This may seem like fairly inoffensive stuff, but some seem to feel that Zegler's attitude to the project makes her come across "narcissistic," and the backlash has not been kind.
Now, Zegler has sent out an emotional video in response to the people who took issue with her comments.
