The first character posters for the newly named sequel to Snow White and The Huntsman have been revealed.
The new film, entitled The Huntsman: Winter’s War, will see Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron reprise their respective roles as eponymous hero, Eric, and the evil Queen Ravenna.
Hollywood starlets, Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt will also star in the upcoming fantasy blockbuster, with Chastain taking on the role of Sara the Warrior. Meanwhile, Blunt appears to have taken a page out of Frozen‘s book in her Elsa-like depiction of Freya the Ice Queen.
Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the official synopsis for the film, reads as follows:
“Long before the evil Queen Ravenna was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya, suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric and warrior Sara —only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.
When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.”
The Huntman: Winter’s War is set to be released in the UK on 22nd April 2016. Take a look at all four character posters below.
