Not the Disney Princess We Know: Snow White and the Huntsman
No singing birds in this one!

The first question that may have popped in your heads upon seeing the trailer for that new non-Twilight Kirsten Stewart movie, Snow White and The Huntsman, is: “where are the dwarves?” Where’s Grumpy, Sleepy or the beardless one, Dopey? Only after we noticed the lack of cute, singing bunnies, deer and all sorts of woodland creatures that we realized something: this wasn’t the 1937 Disney movie, which is by far, the fairy tale’s most famous retelling.


Snow White And The Huntsman, helmed by British director Rupert Sanders, stars Kirsten Stewart, Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) in the titular roles, and the stunning Charlize Theron (Aeon Flux, Monster) as evil stepmother/power-obsessed matriarch Queen Ravenna who longs to gobble up Snow White’s precious, little heart to be the one, and the only, fairest of ‘em all.

Sounds like a familiar tale? Well, it’s still Snow White, only a fair deal grittier, and bloodier than the pleasant trappings offered by the Disney animated classic. How the two compare, we’ll find out when the movie opens in local cinemas, June 1.

Meanwhile, since it’s rare that we get to talk about Disney princesses, we’ll take this chance to do so. In the gallery below, we'll dissect a couple of them, and maybe even suggest future gritty remakes! So put your Prince Charming hats on everyone, and revisit these tales.
