The new Snow White movie calls for a strong, independent female lead! Kristen Stewart and Selena Gomez are you listening?

We just got done reading the script for Universal Pictures’s Snow White and The Huntsman and one thing is clear — the lead role is one badass Disney princess! The new Snow White gets trained to fight and tries to figure out if she really loves Prince Charmant, or if the older and rugged Huntsman is the man for her. The part sounds great for either Kristen Stewart or Selena Gomez!

Plot:

Snow White, an 18-year-old princess who is only friends with animals, is getting more beautiful by the day as her step-mother, the Evil Queen Ravenna (played by Charlize Theron) gets more and more jealous. When Ravenna tries to kill Snow White, she escapes with the help of a hunstman named Eric (rumored to be Viggo Mortensen) who is trying to get revenge on the Queen. Eric is very gruff but teaches Snow White how to fend for herself against the evil creatures of the forest. When she eats a poisonous apple, her childhood sweetheart Prince Charmant must kiss her in order to unfreeze her lips and give her the potion to heal her. She thinks she’s in love with Eric, but he assures her Prince Charmant is her one true love. Despite the love story, it is clear Snow White is not a stereotypical powerless princess who relies purely on men. She is a grown up, Miss Independent-type.

Highlights:

  • Snow White learns how to swing an axe, use a dagger, spar with a sword, and shoot an arrow. She wears a deerskin cloth and becomes muscular, she’s not the damsel in distress any longer.
  • Snow White and Prince Charmant have three kissing scenes — the first when they are 12-years-old!
  • The Evil Queen takes all the beautiful women in the land and puts spells on them to drain them of their beauty. She drinks their essence, becoming more beautiful as they age 60 years.
  • In the battle scene a gaggle of beauties who were once prisoners, and seven dwarfs attack the Queens Army

Notable Lines:

  • “I always hoped we would be together again someday. But now that we are… in so many ways, he’s still the same boy I grew up with, playing at being a knight in shining armor, rescuing his damsel in distress. But I am not a damsel. Not anymore” — Snow White to Eric, the Huntsman, about the Prince.
  • “If you had saved Snow White, she would never learned to save herself.” –Eric to the Prince
  • “If there was ever love between you… then there is still love between you. It doesn’t die. So you fell in love with a boy, now you’ll have to learn to love the man he’s become.” –Eric to Snow White

The story is an intriguing take on the classic tale. However, the visuals are very complicated and risk coming across cheesy if not done well. There are a few cheesy one liners in the script (“You run like a girl” “I am a girl”) but otherwise it’s nice to see a Disney female lead in a situation where she doesn’t need a man. She’s like an innocent action star.

Who do you think is a better fit now that we know more about the role?

Selena is the better choice. Kristin’s acting is well…BLAH. Plus I don’t think she’s that beautiful. I think she’s just pretty and not my idea of a Snow White. Selena may not have the skin but she fits the part of Snow White like a glove. Kristin doesn’t have to have a screen test which I think is bad. UNIVERSAL PICK SELENA GOMEZ! Oh and James Maslow of “Big Time Rush” for The Prince!

They suit the script because they’re good actresses, obviously.

Selena has that innocent princess look that Snow White should have in the beginning. Then the Huntsman will make her tougher like hit-girl in Kickass. Selena is better for this movie. Selena is whiter than kstew.

selena is adorable but kristen has the part already if she wants it. She just hasn’t committed yet, and is making sure viggo and charlize are set in stone before signing herself. It’s a perfect post twilight vehicle that’s a studio film that is surrounded with reputatble people.

She doesn’t need a man? You just said that the Huntsman has to teach her how to fight (dependent on a man to learn skills). Then the Prince has to kiss her to save her from the poisoned apple (man saving the woman from death). I don’t think you know what an independent woman is. It’s one that trains herself and saves herself. Like Angelina Jolie in Salt. This sounds like the same Disney princess stuff with some fight training added.

It’s great to know you’re stealing from fansites and you can’t get it straight that this is a Universal Pictures movie, NOT a movie from Disney.

I’d prefer Selena. Kristin’s acting is kinda bland. And since “Wizards of Waverly Place” is in it’s final season Selena should be able to tackle a much darker role.

Lol Kristen’s acting is in no way bad, maybe you’re basing it off Twilight, but you should watch her other movies…

That will be AWSOME if K-Stew played Cinderlla. She is a different type of actress, this will be good. She has the beauty and talent. I really can’t wait for more movie with K-Stew in them. I think she is Great and what is ahead of her is going to be great.
