2:36 p.m. Charlize Theron is back and… Kristen Stewart is here. Stewart was a total surprise. She wasn’t in the program.
2:45 p.m. “Snow White and the Huntsman” continues to kick some “Mirror Mirror” butt when it comes to trailers. The new trailer features actually Kristen Stewart dialogue! It also features our first scenes with the dwarves, who are played by non-dwarves like Ian McShane. This movie really does look like it’s gonna kick a bit of butt.
2:46 p.m. K-Stew fell off a horse when she was nine. She hurt herself and dislocated her elbow. She didn’t want to do horse work again, but she decided she wanted to do this movie and she decided, “If I perish by horse, it’s all good.”
2:47 p.m. “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.
2:48 p.m. “Hey now… I could have a full-on ‘Twilight’ conversation right now, but I’m not going to do that,” Stewart says, protesting when it’s suggested that she’s playing a badass, rather than her typical damsel in distress. She liked the character because her badassery made sense and because the character is “brimming.” “I can, in so many different parts of my life, relate and love that about her,” Stewart says. “Kristen’s very explosive in action. She sprints like a 100-meter sprinter… She keeps up with the men,” the director says.
2:54 p.m. “Are you single?” Thereon asks a kid asking a question of Stewart, “I think you’re adorable.” “Everything I’ve done always feels really different,” Stewart says. “That was a really extended period of my life and it was very much its own thing and I love that character and Snow White couldn’t be more different,” Stewart says of transitioning from “Twilight” to “Snow White.”
2:56 p.m. Sanders gave Stewart a book about Joan of Arc for research. She admits that she didn’t read it…
SPOILERS below from the clip shown at Wondercon:
This appear to be the Queen’s magical army. She’s making her move across the land, conquering.The queen talks to the mirror, who tells her another is now fairer than she and it will cause her power to waneA man is sent to steal Snow White’s heart (literally), but she escapes into the Dark Forest. The Huntsman is brought before the Queen. He’s the only one who has been in the dark forest before, but he doesn’t want to help catch Snow White. We see the dark forest. It’s filled with black smoke, tentacle trees, little dragons and bats.The Huntsman finds Snow White, but helps her, traveling with her deeper into the forest to protect her. We see some kind of a monster that looks like a bit like a minotaur. It attacks Snow White and the Huntsman. Later, they’ve been caught in a trap and are dangling from a rope. The dwarfs approach. When Snow White explains that she is the daughter of King Magnus, the dwarves agree to follow her lead. The whole group heads to a better part of the forest. Everything that seemed ominous before is now positive. There are white horses (maybe llamas?), a giant turtle covered in moss and tiny forest sprites. Later, Snow White realizes that she can see what the Queen sees and realizes that she can kill the Queen. There are a lot of shots of the Queen aging.
