Movie2k Movies – Snow White and the Huntsman Plot

In a kingdom ruled by tyranny, the vain and selfish Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) learns her stepdaughter Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is destined to surpass her as not only the “Fairest One of All” but the kingdom’s future ruler. But the Queen then learns from her Magic Mirror (Christopher Obi) that the only way to remain in power is to consume Snow White‘s heart and achieve immortality. Snow escapes into the Dark Forest and Ravenna recruits the Huntsman Eric (Chris Hemsworth) to kill Snow. Eric, however, takes pity on the young princess and teaches Snow White the art of war. Now, with the aid of seven dwarves and Prince William (Sam Claflin), Snow White begins a rebellion to bring down her stepmother once and for all.

The Dwarves

Film producers considered casting a less well-known actress for the role of Snow White, with mention of Riley Keough, Felicity Jones, Bella Heathcote, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Maxwell as possible picks. This idea became less likely as actresses Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning were later rumored to be shortlisted for the role. On March 4, 2011, the casting rumors were fueled even more by a series of tweets from co-producer Palak Patel that confirmed that Kristen Stewart was offered the role of Snow White. The tweets also stated that an official confirmation would be coming out later that week, but it would be several weeks before her casting was officially confirmed by the studio. At first, Winona Ryder was considered to play Ravenna, before the role went to Charlize Theron. Johnny Depp turned down the offer to play Eric, the huntsman. Viggo Mortensen was in negotiations with Universal for the part, but ultimately turned down the role as well. Hugh Jackman was briefly offered to play the role of the huntsman but also declined. In 2011, Thor star Chris Hemsworth was eventually cast in the role of the huntsman.

Principal photography took place in the United Kingdom.
