While the original Snow White was helpless and awaiting her Prince Charming to come along and save her it is pretty clear from the new photos revealed from the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ film that this Snow White will have no trouble taking care of herself.
Even though production for ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ does start up until next week in London, the cast of the film were at Comic-Con and they gave an exclusive first look at the film’s characters.
The photos are of Kristen Stewart as ‘Snow White’, Charlize Theron as the ‘Queen’, Chris Hemsworth as the ‘Huntsman’ and Sam Claflin as the ‘Prince’.
Although there was no actual footage of the film to show the crowd, since it hasn’t started filming, the publicity photos were more than enough to get the crowds excited for the film.
Theron joked about her costume in the photo, saying “that’s not my collar, that’s actually part of my head,” while Hemsworth kidded, saying that it took “four days of drinking” to get his hair to look like that in his photo.
Kristen also talked about her costume and said;
“It makes you feel kind of strong occasionally, sometimes. You kind of feel tiny. My tiny bobblehead…my pinhead kind of sticks out of this thing.”
And Theron offered her support, saying;
“Don’t worry, we’ll get you steroids, you’ll be fine.”
The team also announced that there will be eight dwarfs and not seven. The eight actors casted as the dwarfs are; Nick Frost, Johnny Harris, Toby Jones, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson.
Director Rupert Sanders spoke about the dwarfs, saying;
“They are very tough East End villains in their day jobs, but they’re coming together to be a group of very tough East End dwarfs. This is my desperation to make a war movie. I’ve cast my British SAS squad with these great actors, who are very funny, very tough, and together are quite unstoppable.”
When he was asked why there are eight dwarfs instead of seven, Sanders said; “There are a few great lines when one of them gets [offed],” in which Theron interjected and said “Wow, spoiler alert! Put a gag ball on it, seriously,” to which Sanders replied “I knew I would get something wrong.”
All of the costumes were designed by three time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood.
