In a kind of reverse-adaptation, Snow White and the Huntsman, the second of two major Snow White movies this year, will be getting a novelization by Lily Blake on Apr. 17 leading into the film’s June 1 release. The book cover — a repackaged version of one of the film posters — features Kristen Stewart as a knife-wielding warrior princess who couldn’t be more different from the fluttering damsel from the 1937 Disney film or the wide-eyed ingenue from the upcoming Lily Collins-starrer Mirror, Mirror. Check out the cover below:
I know Huntsman is supposed to be a dark, epic action-adventure, but I’m liking the Wonderland-like shrubbery and fungi in the foreground.
