When I think about Snow White, the image of cartoon birds helping a princess get dressed in a ball gown tends to spring to mind. With a bunch of exciting looking action sequences and not a single cartoon bird in sight, I’m pretty psyched to see Snow White and the Huntsman. I had a chance to talk to two of the movie’s stars, Kristen Stewart (Snow White) and Sam Claflin (Prince Charming).
With Kristen and Sam in a castle in England, I joined (via the magic of the Internet) from an equally glamorous location (aka my living room). The two stars talked about everything from who’s fairest princess of them all (Spoiler: Sam thinks Kirsten is prettier than Kate Middleton) to what its like to play fairy tale legends. Enjoy! .
. Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1st, 2012. .
Synopsis: In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar(r) winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
