So, I already like this preview because of the grandpa-voice that’s narrating it. Doesn’t that just completely sell you on it, too? Who doesn’t have a soft spot in their hearts for good old movie-narrating grandpa that’s just a decibel away from being the scary-movie preview-announcer guy?
The film looks great, and Julia Roberts will probably be epic in this role, but Lily Collins‘ portrayal of Snow White, however, is mad cheesy. She’s just so “tee-hee” and “who me?” and before you get all crazy and say, “DUH, Sarah, it’s Snow White, what’s she supposed to be like?”, I’m going to stop you and respond that you’re absolutely right. 100% undeniably correct. And maybe that makes her perfect for this role, I don’t know. But then again, the original Disney Snow White character pissed me off, too, because she was way too big of a goody-goody, and maybe my childhood prejudices about miscast animated feature characters has lived with me these twenty-eight years on earth. It wouldn’t be the first time something like that’s happened, you know.
