The European Tale of Snow White Gets a Makeover

An international all-star cast of Charize Theron(The Queen), Chris Hemsworth(The Huntsman) and Kristen Stewart make up Snow White and the Huntman, the newsest spin to the classic tale.  “Snow White” is a fairy tale known from many countries in Europe, the best known version being the German one collected by the Brothers Grimm (German: Schneewittchen und die sieben Zwerge, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves“). The German version features elements such as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, and the seven dwarves, who were first given individual names in the 1912 Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and then given different names in Disney’s 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Grimm story, which is commonly referred to as “Snow White,” should not be confused with the story of “Snow White and Rose Red,” another fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm.

In this version Snow White will not remain a damsel in distress but will be a kick butt babe with a sword and shield.  (Click Here to See Trailer and read about co-star Charlize Theron)
