Fans anticipating the collaboration between Dwayne Johnson and Disney should brace themselves as Disney navigates a somewhat controversial venture. The ongoing production of a live-action rendition of Snow White, starring Rachel Zegler in the lead role, has become controversial. The film has become enveloped in controversy primarily due to Zegler’s statements. Her assertion that the movie veers away from the traditional love story archetype has ignited both backlash and extensive discussions.

Disney has faced its share of skepticism in recent film releases, raising questions about this upcoming movie. In these debates, an AI artist’s creative spin on Dwayne Johnson, envisioned him as various Disney princesses, including Snow White.

The artist’s Instagram post hilariously showcases Dwayne Johnson’s transformation into Snow White and several other beloved Disney characters, such as Tinker Bell, Belle, Elsa, Rapunzel, Tiana, Merida, Ariel, Aurora, and Jasmine.
