The shy star of Twilight fame will be portraying Snow White in the up and coming movie Snow White and the Huntsman. Directed by Rupert Sanders and due out June 1, 2012, this film also stars Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, and of course, Sam Claflin as Prince Charming.
“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 of her character. “[The armor] makes you feel kind of strong occasionally, sometimes, but I kind of feel tiny, my pinhead sticks out of these enormous things.”
These photos were captured on the beaches of Wales, where they are currently filming this week. Enjoy your bird’s eye view!
Theron, talking about her preparations for her role as the Evil Queen , says, “As a fable, she sort of just starts off as a bad person, so it was important to understand [why she is the way she is]. A lot of her circumstances will kind of bleed into her actions. … She’s a serial killer; I’m pretty much preparing to play a serial killer.”
We can’t wait to see the sinister Theron at work!
The fierce fairy tale film centers around the struggle between Snow White and the Evil Queen, who, jealous of Snow White’s beauty, wants to destroy her.
The clincher is that Snow White has been training with the Huntsman, who has been ordered to kill her. And in true fairy tale fashion, the handsome Prince Charming is enamored with Snow White.
