Lily Collins-Snow White via Relativity Studios
Lily Collins looks like a fantasy – real but not real. Of course, Snow White is a tale of fantasy from the minds of the brothers Grimm. Ever since Walt Disney animated the story, it was never viewed the same way.

The new Snow White Movie is due in 2012. Tarsem Singh is the director on this one. This officially untitled family version is due for release in March 2012. Much earlier than the December 2012 release date given prior. Perhaps it is due much in part to the rival studio – Universal – and its race at warp speed to the finish line. Timing is everything.
Concept Art for Snow White Movie Poster
Great Concept Art Poster. A sad little Kingdom from what was. I can sort of get that fantasy feel for this movie. The studio is taking a while to put a name on this project. A name people, a name!

Speaking of names. Lily Collins as Snow White. Julia Roberts as the evil Queen, Snow’s wicked step-mother. Julia also gets top billing. Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew Alcott. Sean Bean, Nathan Lane and a host of others to round out thecast.

Apparently this movie is not getting a G rating either, as it will have many action scenes. A dark twist on the classic fairy tale, in which Snow White and the seven dwarfs look to reclaim their destroyed kingdom. I hear Lily is doing her best to kick some butt in this film. Her pay back to her evil step mother, Snow White must fight for her legacy and truth. Cool! This is a comedic action version of Snow White. I cannot wait for the 7 dwarfs. If Lily, as Snow White looks this great, I can only imagine the dwarfs being very interesting. OK!, OK! I am a 7-year-old at heart. Don’t care. I think Lily is adorable!

And then there is the other movie….
Kristen Stewart - Snow White & The Huntsman via Universal Studios
Based on the poster, it seems more like a “Joan of Arc meets King Arthur, meets Robin Hood” ? Universal Studios version is titled Snow White and the Huntsman. Release date is set for June 2012. This movie has been touted as the ” dark, epic action film Snow White and the Huntsman.” Snow White teams up with the Huntsman, to fight the evil Queen. Snow learns to ride horses, wield a sword and battle armies of the Queens soldiers. Boy, this is not Disney!

The movie is directed by Rupert Sanders, starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen. See, I had written last year that the Kristen Stewart version would be darker, sulkier, etc. No! I wasn’t being mean, it is how it is. SPOILER ALERT! We will find out in this movie why there are 7 dwarfs—when the movie begins there are 8 dwarfs. I dwarf dies. No Yucks here! On that note… There seems to be a bit of wrangling for a PG-13 rating by the studio. Those in the know are saying there is an R rating headed their way. Humm! I am beginning to understand a bit more. So, PG-13 does not seem as quite the stretch for this Snow White and the quarrelsome 7. We shall see!
