Peary Wilmington

“Michael and I were both part of an astonishingly passionate and extremely contentious film scene at Wisconsin, where, around 1970, certainly more 16mm film societies existed than on any other campus in America. This was during the Vietnam War, and the film lovers broke into two groups, the “politicos” (I and others), who wanted left-wing and agitprop cinema, and the “aesthetes” (Michael and others), who opted for personal, formally elegant films regardless of their politics. My how these two groups fought! Even literally: it’s too silly today to explain the circumstances which led to Michael leaping on my back one day in the Wisconsin student union and wrestling me to the ground. Luckily, my girlfriend at the time pulled Michael off me, two against one, and no punches were thrown.”

Disney: To avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we are taking a different approach with these seven characters and have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community. We look forward to sharing more as the film heads into production after a lengthy development period.”

Peter Dinklage Comments To Marc Maron: “I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. You’re still telling the story of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me. You’re progressive in one way and you’re still making that fucking backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together, what the fuck are you doing man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox? I guess I’m not loud enough.”
