Not Your Children’s Fairy Tale: Meet Snow White From “Snow White & The Huntsman”

One of the many reasons why I’m psyched to see “Snow White and the Huntsman” is that it actually seems to be as dark as the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale was written. While the story has been Disney-fied in a couple incarnations, “Snow White and the Huntsman” is a seriously grim and disturbing story — exactly the way it should be! In preparation for the movie’s release on June 1, we’re going to be giving you a little insight into the backstory behind some of the key characters in our “Not Your Children’s Fairy Tale” video series. We’ve already told you about how evil Queen Ravenna (played by Charlize Theron) is out to eat Snow White’s heart so she can attain immortality, but why is our heroine such a threat to her anyway? Here’s some background on Snow White herself.

This post was sponsored by “Snow White and the Huntsman,” but I really am going to be first in line to see the movie.
