Kristen Stewart, who played Snow White in the first installment will not appear in the Winter’s War, which takes place before Eric and Ravenna met Snow White. Blunt’s character, Freya, is Ravenna’s sister and has fled their kingdom after a heartbreaking betrayal and locked herself away in an icy palace. But when Freya’s two most beloved huntsmen, Eric and Sara (Chastain), defy her commands and fall in love, she casts them out into the wilderness.
