Snow White will be a modernized version of 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was both the first Disney feature film and the project that launched Disney’s Princess canon. Directed by Marc Webb, the film will star Rachel Zegler in the title role. On the other hand, Mufasa: The Lion King, will be portrayed in photorealistic CGI animation directed by Barry Jenkins of Moonlight. It will be a prequel that will explore the origin story of Simba’s father. It will have returning actors John Kani as Rafiki, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner as Timon.
