Universal has released a lengthy new trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War which msytifyingly seems to pitch the film as a prequel to Snow White And The Hunter. We’re not entirely sure that’s the case, as the synopsis suggests there’s a prologue set before the first film then the main section is set after. But whatever it turns out to be, it definitely features the return of Charlize Theronas the Evil Queen Ravenna and Chris Hemsworth as Eric The Huntsman, along with Jessica Chastain as the Warrior Sara and Emily Blunt as the Ice Queen Freya.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War, directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, will be released in the UK on 8 April.
Long before the evil Queen Ravenna was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya, suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen – including Eric and warrior Sara – only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: forever harden your hearts to love.
When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable… unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.
