Universal Pictures just dropped he second trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War and surprisingly also seem to have changed the entire theme of the film. While the story was originally supposed to be set as a flashback and then events happening AFTER Snow White defeats Queen Ravena, now it’s being touted as the story that came before Snow White.

Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron return to their roles from Snow White and the Huntsman, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain.

The film’s original synopsis had two sisters, Ravenaand Freeya, united in their bat tala against the Huntsman. Freeya’s heart had been frozen due to heartbreak this demanding for her warriors to never fall in love. She had set out on a quest to find he magic mitre to free her beloved sister Ravena and both would cause chaos to the kingdom.

Things have changed though. In this new trailer we see a new storyline develop. It seems that now evil Queen Ravenna betrays her good sister Freya 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. Alongside fellow warrior Sara —the only woman who has ever captured his heart—Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister…or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.

Sounds like an amazing battle but one must ask, if his story takes place before Snow White, doesn’t that automatically mean Raveena winds over Freeya in the end? And is Sara the wife hat Eric mourns in Snow White and the Huntsman where he teams up with Snow White to defeat Raveena once and for all?

Guess we’ll know once the film drops and we can see how the entire story plays out. For now, take a look at the jam packed trailer to The Huntsman: Winter’s War below before its theatrical Reese on April 22.
