Warwick Davies does a much better job of promoting the advantages of casting "little people" in roles, with less f-bombs and a total lack of chips falling off both shoulders.
Usually I expect Warwick to be in the movie Narnia series, given that he was in all four of the BBC, but Dinklage at least got to be in the movie of Prince Caspian, to help typecast him as Perpetually Grumpy.

So he hated the dwarfs in snow white? Dwarfs are not real. They are fantasy like creatures like fairies and elfs. Also they do not live in a cave. They live in a two story house and work in a gem mine and are rich.
And although there is no mithril in the Seven Jeweled Hills, at least give props to Walt-era Disney for remembering that dwarfs are miners. (Not to mention craftsmen, who carved most of the cute wooden decorations in the house.)
Even though the Dwarfs admittedly don't know what they dig gems for, they dig, dig, dig-a-dig-dig.

Any criticism of Disney's new version is pretty bizarre, given that no one (not already involved) has seen a script, or knows anything of how the story will be presented.

Peter just sounds bitter he wasn't consulted because apparently only he knows what people of his stature want. Almost like he is scared the movie will be so successful, that he will lose the crown of 'Person to hire for a short role' that he stole from Warwick Davis.

He has always been vocal about it:

It has nothing to do with not being cast or consulted, and quite frankly I don't think Disney would have said no to him if he had wanted. Look how much commotion he managed to create just because he's so well respected.

So now the little people they WOULD have cast won't get work now.

Progress?

Alright, with no dwarfs, I think I found the title for the new Snow White movie…

That PlayStation cover is terrifying. :shock:
You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!

It's also false advertising! They look nothing like that in the actual "game"...
