It’s officially 2012, which means we’re that much closer to the first of two Snow White films set for release this year. First out of the gate will be director Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror (followed by Snow White and the Huntsman this summer). A gallery of new official set photos from the film has been released, giving us a look into Singh’s artistic process of bringing Snow White to life. The trailer for Mirror Mirror (described as a “comedic adventure) wasn’t exactly promising, but the visuals on display in these photos are pretty stunning. Disney regular Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) is working on the score for the film, so it’s safe to say that we’re in for a pretty fluffy version of the Snow White fairy tale.
Hit the jump to check out the photos. The film stars Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, and Sean Bean. Mirror Mirror opens March 16th, 2012.
Here’s the synopsis for Mirror Mirror:
In Relativity’s Mirror Mirror starring Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts and breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side), an evil Queen (Roberts) steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess (Collins) enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
