Never one to see eye-to-eye with a potential enemy, Charlize Theron’s almighty Queen Ravenna is at loggerheads with Freya (Emily Blunt) in the latest TV spot for Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s fantasy prequel, The Huntsman Winter’s War.
Upon betraying Freya and freezing her heart to love, Ravenna is left to preside over the Kingdom of Tabor undisturbed. But in doing so, her spiteful act unleashes a devastating ice power from within Freya, causing Emily Blunt’s would-be ruler to retreat to her very own, ahem, kingdom of isolation.

There, she begins training scores of huntsmen into a bona fide army, forcing each and every one to take an oath of celibacy. Among those hardened fighters are Jessica Chastain (Sara) and the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth (reprising his Snow White role of Eric) who are caught somewhere in between the bitter sibling rivalry brewing between Freya and Ravenna.
If it sounds like a narrative mishmash on paper, at least the visuals carry on that impressive gothic style from Rupert Sanders’ 2012 sleeper hit.
The Huntsman Winter’s War will beckon fans back to the fantastical Kingdom of Tabor on April 22. But will you make the journey?
Discover the story that came before Snow White in The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar winner Charlize Theron return to their roles from Snow White and the Huntsman, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain. Theron stars as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Blunt) with an unforgivable act, freezing Freya’s heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed. Retreating to a kingdom far to the north, Freya raises an army of Huntsmen as her protectors, with the only rule that no two of them should ever fall in love.
As a war for domination escalates between the two queens, the hero standing between them is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Hemsworth). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Chastain)—the only woman who has ever captured his heart—Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister…or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.
