The caption of the picture above states "Discover the story before Snow White." Yes, this film has events that happen before Snow White, but generally it happens after the events of Snow White. Before the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) helps Snow White fight against the evil queen, he is a young boy being trained under Freya (Emily Blunt) to be a huntsman, along with many other young children. This is what she does, she takes the children as her own and trains them. There's one catch though, they aren't allowed to love. So when Eric falls in love with Sara, Freya loses her shit. She uses magic to send Eric away and kill Sara.
This is where Snow White and the Huntsman comes in. After being sent away, he meets Ravenna who employs him with finding Snow White, and well you know the rest. After that film happens, is really when this film takes place. At some point, he is reunited with his dead wife. They quickly find out the Freya just made it look like she was dead and that he left her.
Favorite parts of the movie: the magic that Freya has - ice queen! And that Kristin Stewart was not a part of it.
I felt like everyone played their roles wells. Charlize Theron (Ravenna) was great just like she was in the first film. Emily Blunt was well... Emily Blunt. Love her. Chris Hemsworth was his typical Huntsman self fighting to the end. I think Jessica Chastain was my favorite. You couldn't tell if she was following the queen, or following the love that she has for Eric.
I liked this story more than Snow White and the Huntsman I think, but still for some reason didn't like the movie overall as much. I'm giving this movie a "Liked It."
