Venture into a land of action fantasy, heroic battle scenes and visual wonder in Snow White and the Huntsman Extended Edition, coming to Blu-rayCombo Pack, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on September 11, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Packed with pulse-pounding battles, unmatched visual imagination and compelling characters, Snow White and the Huntsman is a wholly original adventure story told on an epic scale. From the splendor of the wicked Queen’s enchanted palace to the menace of the Dark Forest, a breathtaking combination of harrowing beauty, epic battle scenes, visual wonder and jaw-dropping special effects make this film singularly suited for the incomparable high-definition picture and perfect hi-def 5.1 surround sound of Blu-ray.

Consumers can now truly enjoy their movies anytime, anywhere on the platform of their choice.

From acclaimed producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland), Snow White and the Huntsman is “A breathtaking experience that shouldn’t be missed” and “a flat-out masterpiece!” with “amazing special effects,” said Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV. Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times, raves, “A film of astonishing beauty and imagination. What a ride!” While Peter Travers of Rolling Stone calls it simply, “A visual marvel.”
Snow White and the Huntsman’s stellar cast includes Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron (Prometheus, Hancock), Chris Hemsworth  (Thor, The Avengers), Kristen Stewart (the Twilight saga, On the Road), Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Bob Hoskins (Mrs. Henderson Presents), Ray Winstone (The Departed), Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz), Toby Jones (Frost/Nixon), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes), Johnny Harris (Atonement), Brian Gleeson (The Eagle), Sam Spruell (The Hurt Locker), Vincent Regan (Clash of the Titans), Lily Cole (St. Trinian’s), Noah Huntley (28 Days Later), Liberty Ross (W.E.) and, in her feature-film debut, Raffey Cassidy as the young Snow White.

In this spectacular action-adventure, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) is Snow White, the only woman in the land fairer than the evil queen Ravenna (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron). Ravenna wants nothing more than to destroy her young rival, but she doesn’t know that Show White has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) the queen dispatched to kill her. Together with a handsome prince (Sam Claflin) enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power, they assemble an armed force to recapture the kingdom. This breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders is, in the words of Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV, “A film that soars with creativity, stylistic genius and amazing battle scenes.”

We loved this movie! I love the twist on this classic fairytale.  No more cutesy characters, this is a movie for adults!  It has action, intrigue, a little bit of romance and when it ends, it leaves you wanting more!  Charlize Theron is an amazing actress and was made for this film.  Her pure evilness is believable and you despise her and her brother.  Another great choice was Chris Hemsworth!  He sure knows how to wield a sword! I am just in awe at all the special effects and amazing imagery in this film!

The movie is rated PG -13 for a reason!  There is a few battle scenes, murders and other scenes that can scare children.  Just because it has Snow White in the title, does not mean it if for kids!

Thinking of throwing your own Snow White movie party?  Here are some fun ideas to get the party hopping:

Snow White's poisoned apple cider from
Unlike the poison apple in Snow White, this cocktail is incredibly delicious and only poisonous to children! I warn you, these are strong and may cause you to think the animals are talking to you or little dwarves are following you around.
Yields: 4 poison apples


  • About 2-1/2 cups apple cider (either store bought or prepared with this recipe)
  • 4 shots spiced rum, like Captain Morgan's (about 1 cup)
  • 4 large apples
  • 4 cinnamon sticks


  1. Cut the top off the apples, set aside. Using an apple corer (or spoon), remove the insides of the apples, leaving about a 1/2 inch on the bottom (so it doesn't leak out).
  2. Mix together 3/4 cup of cider and 1 shot of rum (or gauge the amount depending on the apple's size).
  3. Pour mixture into the cored apples and serve with a fresh cinnamon stick.
