'Rose Red': Disney Making Live-Action Movie About Some Sister Snow White Suddenly Has Now


Disney won't stop with the live-action reboots, sequels, tie-ins, requels and reimaginings. They just won't. And now they're doing their favorite new trick to Snow White.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rose Red will be a non-toon tale about a Grimm character who will now magically be Snow White's sister. Here's the word:

"When Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarfs to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life."

In addition to The Jungle Book, which opens in two weeks, Disney's live-action brain trust is cooking up a 20-years-later Mary Poppins movie, a new Dumbo directed by Tim Burton and an Aladdin prequel called Genies.
