Surprise, surprise! Kristen and Charlize both joined the SWATH panel at WonderCon 2012, Saturday March 17th. It was announced late February
that director Rupert Sanders was to attend this event. Lovely surprise indeed that the two female leads joined him in the panel.
And Rob wearing the same sweatshirt last year at the Cosmopolis set. Another shared shirt. Sweet!

Kristen was asked about difference between death and twi. She defended twilight. Says she can have a full on convo.
@EricIGN: "I can have a full on Twilight conversation right now, but I won't do that."-Kristen Stewart when asked about not playing damsel in distress
Sanders thinks the actors made the fairy tale characters feel real and grounded and relevant. “Without a good story, you’re just making wallpaper. And I didn’t want to make wallpaper.”
“I think, essentially, we’re pretty true to who she is, brass tacks core personality traits,” Stewart says, though she wanted to make sure this was a character who had been thought about and not just a basic archetype.
Stewart is saying how proud she is of Sanders' work. "Everything I wanted [Snow White] to be is there and that's really rare,"
Stewart explains. "I hurt myself a lot,"
says Stewart about the stunts. But that's what drew her to the project. "I got to jump off cliffs and ride horses,"
she says, "And that terrified me. I didn't like that."
From Charlize "It's because I'm a b--h," .She says that Picasso had his blue period and she's just in her b--h period. Exact quote from her USA Today interview- Jan 2012
Sanders says that the film is definitely based on the original Brothers Grimm version and doesn't take any other adaptations into account.
Kristen Stewart said she got to jump off things and ride horses and she hated it LOL Kristen Stewart said in playing a different Snow White, they're finding out the why and she was excited to do that Kristen Stewart said she's always wanted to play badass action role, and this makes sense to her, her role is relatable A kid audience asked Kristen Stewart how she went from Twilight role to Snow White Charlize Theron thinks the kid audience who asked Kristen Stewart was adorable LOL Kristen Stewart said director Rupert Sanders gave her the book about Joan Of Arc BTW, the new trailer for #SWATH showed more of the dwarves.
SPOILERS: More details of the footage
The footage opens with a much bigger look at some of the battle scenes in the trailer, where two armies fight and we see several of the soldiers shatter apart into crystalized shards when swords swing through them. Queen Ravenna (Theron) is told, "My queen, yet another kingdom falls to your glory." We see an extended version of the scene in the trailer where the Queen asks the classic, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of the all?" question and is told there is "One more beautiful than you… Snow White." The mirror adds, "She is the reason your powers wane."
We then see Snow White (Stewart) held down by the queen's man. She asks what the queen wants from her, and he tells her, in a sadistic voice, "Your beating heart," only for Snow to hit him and make a run for it. She runs out into a town square as she's chased by guards, only to make a pretty cool running slide into a drainage system, leaping off the ledge at the bottom and into the water below.
Chased on horseback, Snow White makes it into the forest, as the queen screams, "Where is she?!", slapping her man hard when he can't tell her. We then see the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) brought to the queen, noting he is "one of the few who have entered into the dark forest" and survived. The Huntsman is skeptical when he is told about Snow White, saying, "She is certainly dead." In the forest, we see Snow White attacked by bat-like creatures, and hear the roars of other threats.
The Huntsman finds Show White, running up to her and holding his hand over her mouth to stop her for screaming – only for Snow to grab a knife fro his belt and hold him at bay. We then see the two of them attacked by an enormous, two-legged creature, which looks like it's made from stone or bark, with two huge horns growing from its head.
In another scene, the Huntsman is caught in a rope trap, leaving him hung upside down. It turns out the Seven Dwarves set the trap ("Oh no, dwarves..." mutters the Huntsman), and they initially taking great delight in hitting the Huntsman. The dwarves are at first dismissive when they meet Snow White, until she tells them her father was the king.
Now allies, the dwarves, Snow White and the Huntsman begin traveling together, and we see many animals and creatures they encounter – including a fascinating looking turtle camouflaged into the greenery behind it. "She is the one," says one of the dwarves, watching Snow White.
The footage ended with a quick-cut montage, as we see Snow White, now wearing armor, with a large army. Says Snow, "I can kill her." The queen at one point is seen in a very weak and withered state but also grabbing a woman and seemingly sucking the life out of her, like a Dementor in Harry Potter.
