Kristen Stewart came through with more than juicy scoop about her role in “Snow White and the Huntsman” when she sat down with MTV News on Tuesday night (May 29) as part of Sneak Peek Week : KStew also brought an exclusive clip from the movies, which opens this Friday.
In the teaser, Snow White (Stewart) and the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) are seen hanging upside down from a tree after being captured by dwarves. To escape, the Huntsman offers them gold, but when the dwarves refuse, Snow assumes it’s because they have allegiances to Queen Ravenna. In fact, one of the dwarves says they “lost everything when the King died” thanks to the evil queen’s ways.
The king, it is revealed, was Snow’s dad. And it turns out she, too, lost it all when the Queen took over power. Another dwarf, who can “see into” Snow’s light, tells her she “is destined to bring an end to the darkness.” What happens next will be revealed when the film opens on June 1.
In addition to Stewart and Hemsworth, the film also stars Charlize Theron as the queen and Prince Charming himself, Sam Claflin, who joined Stewart for MTV’s sit-down. The flick is directed by Rupert Sanders.
