Walt Disney didn’t invent Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but his 1937 animated adaptation of the Grimm Brothers’ classic fairytale popularized it — and gave each of the story’s fantastical dwarf characters memorable names: Doc, Grumpy, Sleepy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey. The Disney business announced earlier this year that West Side Story actor Rachel Zegler will play the princess in a live-action version directed by Marc Webb. During an appearance on Marc Maron’s WTF show on Jan. 24, Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage — who has achondroplasia, a kind of dwarfism — chastised the studio for continuing to recreate a story with outmoded and demeaning images of little people. “Literally no offense to anyone, but I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White — but you’re still telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” Dinklage said to the host. “Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me. You’re progressive in one way, but then you’re still making that f*cking backward story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together. What the f*ck are you doing, man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox? I guess I’m not…

Tim Allen reprises his role as Scott Calvin, or Santa Claus of The Santa Clause universe, in a new Disney Plus limited series. Allen will also serve as an executive producer on the show. In 1994, the first Santa Clause film was released, following divorced father Scott, who became Santa by accident after the original gift-giver fell off his roof. After donning Santa’s red coat, he discovers that the occupational danger of falling off rooftops is covered by a contractual clause. To put it another way, he’s a… Santa Clause. Two more Santa Clause films delved into the legal nitty-gritty of being Santa. In the second film, Scott had to find a woman to fill the role of Mrs. Clause, however in the third film, Jack Frost (Martin Short) deceives Scott into triggering the “Escape Clause” and then travels back in time to become Santa himself. They can get a little strange. https://twitter.com/disneyplus/status/1482038690020945925?s=21 Scott will be revisited in the new series on his 65th birthday, when he realizes he won’t be Santa for much longer. He wants to spend more time with his family, particularly his two North Pole-born children, so he goes on the hunt for a suitable Santa replacement. The next series will begin filming in March. There’s no word yet on whether the rest of the actors will return.

The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort today announced that it will close its doors to all visitors on January 7, 2022. The move came as a result of an increase of COVID-19 infections in the area, prompting the Disney Park to close for at least two weeks. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, which includes Hong Kong Disneyland Park and hotels such as Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Hollywood Hotel, and Disney Explorers Lodge, is located near Penney’s Bay on Lantau Island. The Disney Park was the second expansion into Asia after Tokyo Disney Resort opened many years earlier. Disneyland Park in Hong Kong was inspired by Walt Disney’s original theme park, Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and incorporates Disney characters, popular rides, and fireworks displays. The popular theme park destination will now close for an extended length of time. https://twitter.com/dlpreport/status/1478682184949055488?s=21 While the news currently states the Disney Resort will be closed for 14 days, the current Hong Kong Disneyland Park calendar has blocked out all forthcoming dates, suggesting that the Disney vacation spot will only reopen as and when it is deemed safe to do so. This protracted closure comes only weeks after the Disney Park was forced to close abruptly when government officials ordered all visitors and Cast Members to take an antigen test upon leave, causing Guests to queue for hours. The one-day shutdown turned into several days, yet the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was able to reopen quickly.
