Forget seven—or eight—dwarves. The follow-up film to Snow White and the Huntsman, will reportedly only have two.

According to DeadlineThe Huntsman will only feature two dwarves—the original movie featured eight. Nick Frost, Toby Jones, and Eddie Marsan, all of whom played dwarves in the first film, will not be returning to their roles, Deadline reported. Snow White and the Huntsman was criticized for not casting little people in the film, and instead digitally altering average-height actors. 

The new film is set to star Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth in their roles from the first film, a prequel about their relationship before Snow White entered the picture. Earlier this month it was revealed that Frank Darabont will no longer be directing the film, which is due for release in 2016.

Universal did not immediately respond to EW‘s request for comment.
