I don’t know about you, but growing up, I was always fawned over Disney classics such as Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and of course The Little Mermaid. Though back in the day I used to gush over the catchy tunes of cartoons’ past, today I fawn over the oh-so-romantic stories weaved in-between the animated tales. Handsome princes doing anything and everything to rescue their damsels in distress — to me, it doesn’t get much better than that. And now a new hero has joined the cast of the modern fairytale remake, Snow White and the Huntsman.
Early next year, Twilight Saga starlet Kristen Stewart will be hitting the big screen, sans Robert Pattinson, in Snow White and the Huntsman. Stepping into the shoes as the title character, Stewart’s Snow White may not be humming “Whistle While You Work” with Doc, Dopey, and Sneazy, but cuddling up to a very handsome hunter.
According to recent reports, Thor star and Australian hottie Chris Hemsworth had been offered the role of the huntsman. Already riding high off of his superhero adventure, currently raking in the big bucks since its May 6 release, it was confirmed that Hemsworth is a lock for this once-lighthearted Disney classic set to be brought to life in a darker reboot.
As we reported earlier this year, Snow White and the Huntsman will follow the twisted tale of the evil queen, to be played by Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, as she plots to take down Stewart’s “Snow.” However, this “tale as old as time” will have a pale princess trained and ready for a fight.
Can Stewart bring this sure-to-be badass princess to life on the silver screen, all while steaming it up with a hunk from down under? There’s only one way for theater goers to know for sure by checking out the flick when it hits cineplexes on June 1 of next year.Tags: Beauty and the Beast, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Cinderella, Disney, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Snow White, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Little Mermaid, Thor, Twilight Saga
