Some early photos from the set of the Kristen Stewart version of Snow White have just come out, and they present quite a different version of the story from what we’re used to. In them, K-Stew is suited up for battle in a serious looking suit of armor, and guys on horses prepare to fight…someone. The Evil Queen, perhaps?
One of three Snow White movies currently in production, Snow White And The Huntsman‘s basic premise is that the Evil Queen jealously puts a hit out on that pale bitch via the same huntsman Snow’s been training with. And of course, Prince Charming loves her for indeterminate reasons. Not so different from Twilight, really. “It’s not a little girl sitting by a well with little tweety birds telling her what to do and where to go,” Stewart told MTV News. “[The costume] makes you feel kind of strong occasionally, sometimes, but I kind of feel tiny, my pinhead sticks out of these enormous things.”
Stewart’s wooden acting aside, it’s nice to see a somewhat sexist old fairy tale get re-vamped to give the female main character more agency. I wonder if the other two films will follow suit?
