The Huntsman: Winter's War is taking us back to the beginning, as we'll “discover the story that came before.” Universal's Winter's War is an origin story, a prequel that focuses on huntsman Eric, portrayed by Chris Hemsworth.
Eric had been trained in an army of warriors that was led by Freya (Emily Blunt), who is the cold sister of Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). Sara (Jessica Chastain) and Eric were considered two of Freya's top fighters, but once Freya got wind of their romance, she banished the two.
Years after Ravenna is defeated, Freya tries to take back the Magic Mirror, which only causes her sister's resurrection. To help once again overcome evil Ravenna, Freya calls upon her two trusted warriors to save everyone.
Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, The Huntsman is set to hit theaters on April 22.
