Finally we have heard something new and exciting about the follow up movie to 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman film which starred Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron. A prequel titled "The Huntsman" and its official release date.
Chris and Charlize will be returning to the franchise but not Kristen and it's going to be a prequel where the story between Eric (Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Theron) will be told such as how their paths crossed before.
