A couple of year’s back there were two dueling Snow White films released in the same year. While Mirror, Mirror was brighter in color and in tone, Snow White and The Huntsman was a bit more dark and gritty. The latter would eventually get a spinoff/prequel called The Huntsman: Winter’s War. But now it is time to get ready for yet another live-action Snow White film. But it won’t exactly be about Snow White or The Huntsman. According to new reports, Disney is now developing a film centered around her sister, Rose Red. More on the story below.

“Do you hear that? It’s the sound of battles fought and lives lost. It once pained me to know that I am the cause of such despair. But now their cries give me strength. Beauty is my power.” — Queen Ravenna
In director Rupert Sanders‘ feature-film debut, Snow White and the Huntsman, the ruthless and beautiful (ruthlessly beautiful?) Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) has spilled blood and conquered countless kingdoms. For the Queen, beauty is power – and by that measure she is a Goddess, omnipotent and sovereign. There is another, however, destined to undo Ravenna’s tyrannical rule. The Magic Mirror (Chris Obi) foresees the Queen will be overthrown by her stepdaughter, Snow White (Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart), who will surpass her as “Fairest of Them All”.
Luckily, destiny isn’t always set in stone. If Queen Ravenna can consume Snow White’s still-beating heart, she will achieve immortality and eternal beauty. She summons a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to journey through the Dark Forest and capture her dear, dear Snow White.
