Rachel Zegler is speaking out about finally getting to attend the upcoming Academy Awards.

The 20-year-old West Side Story star has been asked by the Academy to present an award during the ceremony, which guarantees her a ticket to the event. The presenter slot comes after Rachel made it publicly known over the weekend on social media that she was not going to the Oscars because she was not invited. 

Rachel took to Twitter to confirm the new development, saying:

“well folks, i can’t believe i’m saying this but… see you on sunday! the absolutely incredible team at @Disney and our snow white producers worked some real-life magic, and i am thrilled to be able to celebrate my @westsidemovie fam at the oscars.”

The actress, who is currently out of the country filming the live adaptation of Snow White as the titular Disney princess, went on to say:

“it’s not lost on me that being able to shoot a film the scale of snow white during COVID is not easy, and any adjustment to our schedule is no small sacrifice, and obviously a huge thank you to @TheAcademy @WillPackerProds for the presenter spot; i’m so excited to open that shiny envelope. 

i could not be more grateful to everyone who helped make this possible. seriously. now, what to wear…❤.”
