Universal has released a trailer teaser for The Huntsman Winter’s War. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s action-adventure film that explores the origins of The Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and fellow warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain) under the employ of Freya (Emily Blunt), who just so happens to be sister to the Evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she enacts a plan to not only exact revenge on those responsible, but also to restore Ravenna to power.
This movie could be crazy hot garbage that just overloads the audience on wacky visuals (which would make it in line with the original), or it could actually match the strength of the visuals to deliver a decent story and worthwhile characters. This is a terrific cast, and I’m really hoping they can pull together a worthwhile fantasy story. We’ll hopefully have a better idea of what to expect when the first trailer premieres tomorrow.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Huntsman: Winter’s War:
The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in The Huntsman Winter’s War, an epic action-adventure in which they are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, as well as director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in a breathtaking new tale nested in the legendary saga.
Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.
When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.
