Universal Pictures has brought online the first trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman prequel The Huntsman Winter’s War, teaming Chris Hemsworth‘s Huntsman Eric with Jessica Chastain’s character as they fight off the sister duo played by Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt.

Directed by the first-time feature filmmaker Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (who earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Visual Effects for 2012’s dreadfully dull Snow White and the Huntsman) and also starring Colin Morgan, Sam Claflin, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith, The Huntsman Winter’s War opens April 22, 2016. Frank Darabont, David Koepp, Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos wrote the screenplay.

Um, it smells vanilla.

The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in The Huntsman Winter’s War, an epic action-adventure in which they are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, as well as director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in a breathtaking new tale nested in the legendary saga.

Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.

When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.
