Erin Cressida Wilson, the screenwriter of The Girl on the Train, is also in talks to join the project as a writer. La La Land songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are working on new songs for it.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Disney's first animated feature film when it released in 1937. Based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale, it was a big success for the studio and won an honorary Oscar at the 11th Academy Awards.
