“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.

The Snow White and the Huntsman panel at WonderCon 2012 on Saturday began with E! movie personality Ben Lyons introducing director Rupert Sanders and actresses Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron.
Sanders began with an explanation as to how he managed to stay true to the original material of Snow White, saying he wanted to maintain the authenticity of the original while bringing it to a new and contemporary audience.
Stewart, who plays Snow White, when asked what portion of the film she was most proud of said that she was impressed with how delicately Sanders handled the entire process as a director.
Sure, Universal and Relativity may have their own Snow White pictures in production, but The House Of Mouse is looking to take the lead with their own long-awaited return to the story.
Originally conceived as some sort of kung-fu-infused take on Snow White known as Snow And The Seven, Variety is reporting that the film is not only now titled The Order Of Seven, but also actress Saoirse Ronan will be taking the lead.
Can you recognize them all? The photo here above shows the dwarves from the upcoming Universal film Snow White and The Huntsman.
The film’s Facebook page revealed this new look at not only The Huntsman (Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth), but the eight — that’s right eight — dwarves that will be helping him and his leading lady (Kristen Stewart) take down the evil Queen (Charlize Theron). Check out the new photo here above.
