A Tale of Two Snow Whites: Disney vs Daily Wire
Last week, a viral post featuring video clips from Disney’s “Snow White” actress Rachel Zegler and Daily Wire/Bentkey’s “Snow White and the Evil Queen” star Brett Cooper sparked a heated debate about the relationship between the sexes.
The side-by-side videos, posted by popular X account “End Wokeness,” challenged viewers to “spot the difference” between the two upcoming “Snow White” remakes set to release in 2024.
A Feminist Twist
In her clip, Zegler, known for her far-Left feminist activism, boldly declares that Disney’s “Snow White” will break away from the traditional narrative of a damsel in distress saved by a prince. She emphasizes that the new Snow White will dream of becoming a leader, not of finding true love.
On the other hand, Cooper’s video highlights the harmful effects of feminist rhetoric on women. She questions why so many women are predicted to be unmarried and childless by 2030, attributing it to the belief that men are disposable and that a woman’s career is the only thing that matters.
The post has garnered over 1.7 million views and sparked a flurry of comments from users, with one remarking, “Woke vs based. The battle for our culture.”
“Daily Wire: concerned about women’s health,” another comment reads, “Disney: doesn’t know how to define what a woman is.”
Another user points out the consequences of the radical left’s promotion of anti-men sentiments, leading to a culture that rejects marriage and family.

Zegler has been vocal about her disdain for the original “Snow White” fairytale, calling it off-putting and even suggesting that Prince Charming’s scenes could be cut from the remake. In contrast, Cooper expresses her love for the original Brothers Grimm fairytale and the timeless values it represents.
Disney’s recent announcement of a one-year delay in the release of their “Snow White” movie aligns with the backlash they received for their woke messaging surrounding the adaptation. Speculation arises that the delay may be due to reshooting significant portions of the film.
My guess is the SAG strike excuse is just cover and that they are actually reshooting large parts of the movie to make it a more faithful adaptation of their own classic film.

Unlike Zegler, Cooper expresses excitement and honor in bringing the story to life, emphasizing the importance of the original “Snow White” values that she believes are lacking in today’s culture.

How does the controversy surrounding Disney’s “Snow White” remake reflect the influence of media in shaping societal norms and values?
E release of their “Snow White” remake has only fueled the ongoing debate. Some argue that Disney’s decision is a result of the backlash they received from Zegler’s comments, while others believe it is a strategic move to generate more buzz and anticipation for the film.
The Role of Media
This controversy highlights the power of media in shaping societal norms and values. Disney, as one of the world’s most influential entertainment companies, has a significant impact on the beliefs and attitudes of its audience, especially young children. By reimagining “Snow White” with a feminist twist, they are sending a message that challenges traditional gender roles and promotes female empowerment.
On the other hand, Daily Wire’s “Snow White and the Evil Queen” takes a different approach. By emphasizing the detrimental effects of feminism, they aim to shed light on the potential consequences of prioritizing a woman’s career over her personal life. This perspective resonates with those who believe in the importance of traditional family values and the role of men in society.
The Battle of Ideologies
The clash between Disney and Daily Wire’s “Snow White” remakes represents a larger battle of ideologies in our society. It reflects the ongoing struggle between progressive beliefs, advocating for equality and inclusivity, and more conservative values, emphasizing traditional gender roles and family structures. This battle is not limited to the realm of entertainment; it permeates various aspects of our culture, from politics to social issues.
Both sides of the debate have valid arguments and concerns. The challenge lies in finding a balance that acknowledges the progress made in promoting gender equality while respecting the traditions and values that have shaped our society. It is crucial to engage in a respectful and constructive dialogue to bridge the divide and work towards a more inclusive future.
The controversy surrounding the two “Snow White” remakes serves as an opportunity to reflect on the ever-evolving nature of storytelling and the impact it has on our society. As viewers and consumers, we must critically analyze the narratives presented to us and question the underlying messages they convey. It is essential to support a diverse range of stories that represent different perspectives and challenge conventional norms.
Ultimately, the success of these films will be determined by the audience’s response. Both Disney and Daily Wire’s “Snow White” remakes have the potential to spark important conversations and provoke thought on the role of women in society. As the release dates draw nearer, it will be interesting to see how the debate unfolds and the impact these films will have on our understanding of gender roles, relationships, and the stories we tell.
