INTERVIEW: Cecil Castellucci puts a magical, modern twist on SNOW WHITE

INTERVIEW: Cecil Castellucci puts a magical, modern twist on SNOW WHITE

As the Sunday crowd at Comic-Con was just stirring from its slumber for the last day at the convention, I headed over to the Dark Horse booth to chat with the lovely Cecil Castellucci about her modern revisioning of Disney’s classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves for Dark Horse Comics. Castellucci is one of the busiest and most imaginative writers working in comics today, with work extending as far as mainstream superhero comics, YA/middle grade fiction, and indeed, revisiting the magic of Disney characters old and new.

In our oasis on the convention floor, away from the cosplaying mad queens and princes charming, I asked Cecil Castellucci about the challenges of writing classic Disney princesses for a modern audience, adding grit to what is thought to be a dainty character, and twisting expectations so that a tale that was thought to be common becomes relevant and exciting once more!
