Snow White’s sister, Rose Red, is getting her own spin-off!
A new Live-Action Disney tale is in development. This one would center around Snow White’s sister, Rose Red. The script was written by Justin Merz and pitched by Evan Daugherty.
“The story is a revisionist take that transposes Rose Red into the Snow White tale, making her a key player in the later part of the classic story. When Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarves to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.”
Daugherty is familiar with the Snow White tale as he wrote Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth for Universal.
The original story featuring Snow White and Red Rose is included in the Brothers Grimm tales and is unrelated to the well-known version of Snow White in which the Disney animated classic was based off.
This venture is one among many live-action reinterpretations of classic animated movies Disney has in the works. I look forward to seeing how this project develops.
