What happened on Disney’s ‘Snow White’ Set at Pinewood Studios?
On Tuesday afternoon, a fire broke out on the set of Disney’s planned live-action adaptation of “Snow White” at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom. According to Variety, the stage was being built for the film when a tree caught fire, resulting in a massive catastrophe. “There was no filming going on,” a Disney source confirmed.
Photographs show massive flames next to a simulated thatched cottage, with heavy smoke reaching all the way to the ceiling. The fire is thought to have started on Pinewood’s Richard Attenborough stage. The fire, which started about 8.45 p.m. and was finally extinguished just after 11.20 p.m., also destroyed a portion of a nearby structure. The studios, which first opened in 1936, have produced over 1,500 films, including the James Bond flicks Skyfall, Casino Royale, and No Time To Die.
What is the ‘Snow White’ Set made of?
In the Richard Attenborough stage, a set made up of a lot of wood, trees, and other props was currently being built. Pinewood sets have previously caught fire on at least two other occasions. The set burned down near the end of filming for Ridley Scott’s Legend in June 1984, but it was rebuilt and reopened in January 1985. After the production of the James Bond film Casino Royale wrapped in July 2006, another fire broke out.

Although some members of the studio staff were startled, they were safely evacuated. There were no reported injuries, and it’s unlikely that any performers were on set when the fire started. Rachel Zegler will play the Disney princess and Gal Gadot will play the Evil Queen in the live-action adaptation of the animated classic.
The upcoming Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film release date
The original film was released in 1937, and it was the beginning of Disney’s animation heritage. The picture was a critical and commercial triumph, and it won an Honorary Oscar at the 1939 Academy Awards. Disney has plans to remake a number of films into live-action films, including Snow White. Gadot will play the Evil Queen in the film, which is set to be released in 2023, and Zegler will play Snow White.
