Emily Blunt channels 'Frozen' in new trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War
Someone at Universal Pictures has definitely seen Frozen. While I don’t offhand recall the Evil Queen in Snow White having a younger sister who can harness ice, that’s the concept behind The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which just unveiled its latest trailer.
A prequel/sequel to 2012’s Snow White & the Huntsman arriving in theaters April 11, War finds sisters Ravenna (Charlize Theron) and Freya (Emily Blunt) locked in a battle of wills and magic when, based on this clip, Ravenna apparently sets Freya’s baby on fire. Now, THAT was not in Frozen.
Freya then trains an army of child soldiers, two of whom grow up to be huntspeople Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and Sara (Jessica Chastain). These two eventually set out to destroy Ravenna’s magic mirror and save the kingdom. It does not look like they have any help from a talking snowman.
