Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most unconventionally dressed Snow White of them all?
"Snow White and the Huntsman" got its time to shine at Comic-Con on Saturday, bringing its all-star cast to pitch its dark reimagining of the classic fairytale. Kristen Stewart stars as the famed princess in the film, which was likened to "Lord of the Rings" during the panel discussion. Joining her, both int he film and at the press conference, were Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, Prince Charmant Samuel Claflin and the titular Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth.
"I wasn't initially jumping at the chance [to play Snow White] but she is one of the most heavy-handedly sincere, seriously doesn't let her heart cloud her mind characters," Stewart said (via Movieline). "Also, I get to have a sword and stuff."
The story, according to Entertainment Weekly, features Snow White, having escaped from the Evil Queen's imprisonment, off in the woods, being chased down by the Huntsman. He's charged with returning just her heart, but when he can't bring himself to kill her for it, they become partners in the fight against the queen.
Indeed, this Snow White will be a much more action-packed affair, with Stewart and the gang to be featured in some major stunt work. "It's not a little girl sitting by a well with tweety birds telling her what's going on," director Rupert Sanders said (via Cinema Blend).
Theron, who just met Stewart, gave voice to that new attitude, saying, "I know she's going to give me a run for her money. And I'm ready for it bitch, let's go!"
Another fun fact: there will be eight dwarves... until one dies.
