For all you frozen lovers out there get excited! Universal announced a prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman titled The Huntsman. Little is known yet of this film, but here's what I can tell you.
Firstly, we know for sure that this is a prequel of the 2012 film, Snow White and the Huntsman. Secondly, we know this film is following the Huntsman who still is played by Chris Hemsworth. Charlize Theron also will be returning to reprise her role as Ravenna. This movie will show the tale of how Eric (Chris) and the Queen (Charlize) first crossed paths. Most likely this movie will show the death of Eric's first wife who was mentioned in the previous film.
Sadly, those not returning include most of the dwarves. It is rumored that only two out of eight are to return from the first film. Its been narrowed done that the two dwarves will be either Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Johnny Harris, or Brian Gleeson. Kirsten Stewart also will not be returning. The character Snow White reportedly will not be returning due to her affair with the director of the first film. Speaking of the director, Rupert Sanders also will not be returning and was replaced by Cedric Nicholas-Troyan. Screenplay writers also were rehired. That is basicly the negatives of this movie.
Now for you Frozen fans here is what you want! Emily Blunt was casted to play the Snow Queen! Emily Blunt recently has been bursting with roles (Edge of Tomorrow/Into the Woods) and has experience with playing good and bad. Most likely the Snow Queen here will be a villain. We know this because she's supposed to be Ravenna's sister. Ravenna we all know comes from bad blood (like her brother) and we doubt the Snow Queen will be any different. So this makes Emily as Elsa and Charlize as Anna... Interesting.
So what do you guys think about this prequel? Yay or neh? Overall I'm still going to see it, I mean its basically an evil Elsa fighting against an even more evil queen. I just hope they don't ruin it! The date set for the movie's release is April 22, 2016.
