In The Huntsman’s Winter’s War, we get some background on the Huntsman, and what his life was like before he met up with Snow White and the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron.)
Ravenna’s sister Freya (Emily Blunt) was once a young woman in love, but after losing her child, her true powers are released and she captures both the kingdoms and the children in the lands surrounding her castle. The Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) is one of those children. During his training he meets and falls in love with one of his fellow warriors, Sara (Jessica Chastain.)
When Freya finds out about their relationship, she breaks them apart. The Huntsman believing his beloved has died (and after almost being killed himself) leaves Freya’s kingdom.
After running into Sara, who’s not actually dead, The Huntsman plans to take down Freya for good, especially now that Ravenna has made her reappearnce.
I actually liked this movie better than the first one, and definitely recommend it to those of you who enjoy fairy tales.
