American actress Chloë Grace Moretz is set to lead the voice cast of Korean animated film Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs. The movie will reimagine the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs where the dwarfs were actually cursed princes who must be kissed by the most beautiful woman in the world to break the curse.
Giving a twist to the classic Disney fairy tale, Snow White (voiced by Moretz) won’t be the Disney princess we know her to be in this film. Apparently, even the “fairest of them all” has a secret to her beauty and slim-fit body—her red shoes!
The film aims to break stereotypical beauty standards among fairy tale characters as the movie follows the story of the cursed princes learning the true meaning of beauty in their quest for Snow White’s kiss.
Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs is directed by Sung Ho Hong and produced by Locus Creative Studios with Kim Jin as lead animator who previously worked on Big Hero and Frozen.
Other cast include Gina Gershon as Regina, the Evil Queen and Jim Rash as Prince Average, according to Variety. The film is expected for release on 2018.
