Hear Kristen Stewart’s British Accent in New Snow White and the Huntsman Videos
Go behind the scenes on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman with three brand-new featurettes—and hear Kristen Stewart’s British accent while you’re at it!
The Snow White and the Huntsman trailers that we’ve seen so far have been pretty neat, and they’ve been full of Charlize Theron’s terrifying Queen Ravenna, which is even better. But you know what they haven’t had a lot of? Snow White herself. Which seems sort of odd, does it not? I mean, I understand wanting to keep her under wraps at least a little bit, especially since she’s a warrior instead of a simpering princess in this version, but still. You’d assume that one of the title characters would be up for doing a little more than just running around and looking scared, right?
But it looks like our Hollywood prayers have been answered, because not one, not two, but three brand-new Snow White and the Huntsman featurettes have just been released—including one where we get to hear Kristen Stewart speak as the plucky young heroine. Funnily enough, it’s in the featurette focusing on the Queen, but that’s okay. The whole video is pretty awesome—Queen Ravenna is certainly going to be one heck of a villain (especially the way Charlize plays her), and it’s loads of fun to hear Kristen’s and Chris “The Huntsman” Hemsworth’s takes on the character—but start paying attention around the 40-second mark to hear Kristen’s British accent:
There’s also a featurette about the film’s amazing costumes as designed by Colleen Atwood, whose long and varied career includes Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Rob Marshall’s Chicago, The Silence of the Lambs, and a whole host of other fantastic films (she’s a busy woman!):
And a more general behind-the-scenes sneak peek, which deals largely with director Rupert Sanders’ incredible visuals:
Kristen Stewart may kind of bother me, but I think I might be able to overlook that in the interest of the rest of the film; because really? It looks like it’s going to be astonishing. And hey, at least she’ll be kicking way more arse than she usually does as Bella Swan!
Snow White and the Huntsman hits cinemas on June 1.
