“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”: between stereotypes and progress

After the recent accusations about the remake of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", Disney has released an official statement, saying it is consulting with people with dwarfism to prepare for the film. To avoid the stereotypes of the original film.

Peter Dicklage, the famous actor who played the iconic Tyrion Lannister in the TV series "Game of Thrones", suffers from a form of dwarfism. He stated that the story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is still told in a way that doesn't make sense if you want to be progressive. He also called it: “A backward fucking dwarf tale”.
