Snow White Warms Boy’s Heart During Meltdown

In a heartfelt letter to Disney, a New Jersey mom praised one of the princesses at Disney World for how well she consoled her son during an “autism meltdown.” Lauren Bergner told the heartwarming story on Facebook:

 

 

She explains her son Brody has autism and is nonverbal. She took him to meet one of his favorite Disney characters one afternoon, but after waiting in line for so long, Brody became overwhelmed. No problem for Snow White! The actress playing her consoled Brody and took his hand as the two went for a walk to take a break from the crowds. In some of the photos, Brody can even be seen dancing with the princess!

 

 

“She went above and beyond !! She took so much time with him .She was a pure angel ! She was magical and my family is forever thankful and touched!” Lauren Bergner writes.

 

 

It’s so heartwarming to watch the Disney magic come to life for Brody!

Marc Webb to Direct Live-Action Snow White?

Now that Disney’s live action remake of Aladdin is a hit, it seems like the perfect time to announce that Marc Webb is set to direct the live action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Variety reports that while the deal isn’t finalized, Disney has Webb at the top of their list to direct a live action version of Disney’s first full-length animated feature film.

Based on the story from Grimm’s Fairy Tales, this 1937 paved the way for the future. It’s the film that put Disney on the map, the first animated film that had sound incorporated into the cartoon instead of just being an overlay, the film with an adjusted gross of $1.7 billion.

This film is so important that it’s almost surprising that Disney’s mascot isn’t a girl in a glass coffin.

Flash forward and Snow White and getting a live action remake. Will Marc Webb direct it? Despite his stint with the Amazing Spider-man series being less than spectacular (Thanks, Sony!), he’s directed some great flicks.

After the Amazing Spider-Man films, his 2017 film about an intelligent seven-year-old who becomes the subject of a custody battle between her uncle and grandmother entitled Gifted grossed a whopping 43 million off of a $7 million budget, with Star Tribute writing , “Sure, it’s a simple, straightforward film, but sometimes that’s all you need as long as its heart is true” and with Richard Roeper saying, “Gifted isn’t the best or most sophisticated or most original film of the year so far – but it just might be my favorite”.

Maybe it’s time Marc Webb took on the reigns of a bigger film. Luckily, he won’t be alone. This isn’t a one man show, after all, it’s a movie.
