With “No Church in the Wild” from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne album thumping in the background in the clip, Stewart and castmates Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron open up about making the Rupert Sanders-directed film. We also get a taste of what the film, which Theron describes as a “feast for [the] eyes,” will look like. “Snow White” is full of epic battle scenes and eye-popping CGI that helps tell the story of a young princess battling an evil queen.
“The director, Rupert, conjured up visuals that absolutely transported you somewhere else and it wasn’t at all what I expected,” Stewart says.
The big-screen retelling revolves around the feud between Queen Ravenna (Theron) and the inherently good Snow White (Stewart).
“The Queen really symbolizes death and Snow White is the beating heart,” the director says of the struggle between the two leading ladies. “This is an incredible opportunity to create a world that people have never seen before.”
Theron also talks about facing off with Stewart in another behind-the-scenes clip. “As on outsider, I see her for all the things the audience will, but as an insider playing her I had to not think about those things,” she explains.
“Ravenna and Snow White are bound, in a way,” Stewart explains. “She can level you,” she added about Theron’s performance as the queen.
A trailer will drop Monday during “The Voice” with an extended scene also hitting the Net that same day. In a new trailer sneak peek, the backstory is teased as Ravenna makes clear her intentions to kill Snow White.
The film opens June 1. Hemsworth plays the Huntsman hired by the Queen to kill Snow and Sam Claflin rounds out the main cast as Prince Charming.
