Up until this point, I wasn’t entirely clear on the tone of Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer, but these three new featurettes help to clarify that issue.  In terms of recent fairy tale movies, Jack the Giant Slayer appears to be more tonally in line with the lighter Mirror Mirror than the more “gritty and realistic” Snow White and the Huntsman.  Approaching the film with this expectation (and knowing that Ewan McGregor gets rolled up in dough like a pig in a blanket), one would probably enjoy it more for the fun family adventure film that it is.

Also starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ian McShane, Jack the Giant Slayer opens in 3D on March 1st.  Hit the jump to watch three new featurettes. 

The newest featurette comes courtesy of Apple and you can watch it there in HD.  We’ll have an embed up as soon as it’s available.  In the meantime, enjoy two more featurettes below (via Flicks and Bits):

Here’s the official synopsis for Jack the Giant Slayer:

Jack the Giant Slayer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend—and gets the chance to become a legend himself.

    Kind of reminds me of Star Wars (though Star Wars is extremely archetypal). An adventure seeking farm boy has to say have a fiery princes. They’ve even got the token Luke and Leia swinging on a rope shot haha.

      Yes, because no other piece of fiction written before the late 1970′s ever had the premise of a farm boy who has to save a princess……

        Ergo the use of the term “extremely archetypal” and the further specification through the adjectives “adventure-seeking” and “fiery”.
