Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt are the sisters you don’t want to mess with in the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
The Snow White and The Huntsman follow-up appears to be set both before and after the events of the 2012 film, and will introduce audiences to the Evil Queen’s (Theron) younger, but equally dangerous sister, the Ice Queen (Blunt).
In the film, the two will join forces to lead a war that aims to end with making them both the ultimate rulers of the land, unless two of The Ice Queen’s warriors, Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman, Eric, and Jessica Chastain’s Warrior, Sara, can work together to stop them from spreading darkness and destruction.
Watch the full trailer for the film now:
Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.
When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War heads to theaters April 22, 2016.
