Kungfu superstar Jet Li is going to collaborate with "Star Wars" lead Natalie Portman in a new Disney picture, the China news quoted a report in Hong Kong's Wen Wei Po newspaper as saying. The report said the film is an adaptation of Disney's classic "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". It is set thousands of years after the original Snow White story, when the princess has reincarnated into a young woman, played by Natalie Portman.
Her evil stepmother wants to collect the seven pieces of her magic mirror to resume her power.
The Shaolin temple in central China, which has been protecting the mirror for thousands of years, sends seven warriors, led by Jet Li, to protect the mirror and the young woman.
Sources say the movie has a budget of 70 million US dollars and might be made by martial arts choreographer and film director Yuen Woo-ping.
