‘Winter’s War’ is coming for Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt in ‘Huntsman’ posters

Though there’s no Snow White in the Snow White and the Huntsman spinoff, the Evil Queen and the Huntsman have returned, and with them come two fresh faces.

Four new character posters were revealed Monday along with the film’s title: The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Though Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth will reprise their roles as Queen Ravenna and Eric the Huntsman, the new art from Universal’s follow-up to Snow White and the Huntsman gives us the first look at Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt in their new roles.

The sequel-turned prequel will reveal the pair’s history, pre-Snow White (Kristen Stewart, not returning after an affair with the original film’s director, Rupert Sanders, was made public).

This time around, the cast includes Jessica Chastain as a fierce warrior and Emily Blunt as Ravenna’s sister, Freya.

Emily Blunt as the Ice Queen.

The movie picks up as Freya flees the kingdom after suffering from a heartbreaking betrayal — and after she gains the ability to freeze any enemy, becoming an ice queen who holes up in a wintery palace. (If that looks/sounds familiar and you aren’t a copyright attorney for Disney, maybe just let it go.)

Hemsworth and Chastain, of course, play her trusted warriors, who become not-so-trusted when they betray her rules and fall in love.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War is slated for an April 2016 release.
