Snow White and the Huntsman - Official Synopsis
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White's beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
Snow White and the Huntsman - Fairy Tales for Older Fans
Princess stories aren't just for preschoolers, and in fact, many of the most famous of them sprouted from much more mature tales like those of the Brothers Grimm. If your tween or teen is interested in studying fairy tales, or wants to read them just for fun, you can read the Brothers Grimm fairy tales here. Several books are also available on the Brothers Grimm and the stories that have been attributed to them.
Many other movies and novels exist that present more grown up versions of fairy tales in both their original form and adapted into modern day settings. The novel and movie Beastly, for example, adapts the classic Beauty and the Beast into a modern day love story about a struggling teenage girl and an arrogant guy who is turned into a beast by a mysterious witch.
