The Fairest of Them All...

Snow White Showdown
{via}

It finally hit me yesterday that there are officially two feature films coming out soon featuring one of my favorite fairy tales, Snow White, and the two couldn't be any different.

Opening in March 2012, Mirror Mirror stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen & Lily Collins as  Snow White. While a gender twist seems to be at play, this production seems more in line with the Disney-esque feel we've all come to expect from fairy tales. It's colorful & has humor thrown in to lighten the mood.



Then there's Snow White and the Huntsman opening in June 2012. This much darker telling of the story features Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen & throws in a nice looking Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman. This production is darker than its counterpart, and looks like it's working off a bigger budget with bigger production value.



But money isn't everything. Maybe Snow White is supposed to stay more bright and cheery? I can't decide which of these two I'm more excited to see. After watching those trailers, which one are you looking forward to?


PS - here's a great piece about the showdown

  2. I think Mirror, mirror looks funny. I mean it is Julia Roberts. But I am way more excited for Snow White and the Huntsmen. Even the hubby says he thinks it looks great.

  3. Wow I had no idea these were coming out! I think Lily Collins makes a better Snow White than Kristen Stuart, but you're right in saying she's more disney-esque. Maybe I just don't like Stuart, who knows. I'm excited to see both!

  9. Although Julia Roberts is one of my favorite actresses, Mirror, Mirror is too Disney for me. I can't wait to watch Snow White and the Huntsman.
