SATURDAY, JULY 23rd - Happy SWATH at Comic-Con Day!!

Saturday's theme at the Snow White and the Huntsman's Comic-Con panel could easily be "BRING IT ON!" and we're not talking about the movie about competing cheerleaders.

In more ways than one, Universal set the standard as to what this Snow White battle will be about.  If it wasn't Charlize Theron as 'The Queen' calling out Kristen Stewart's 'Snow White' by saying "Bitch let's go!", we believe she took the words right of Universal's mouth to Relativity after what happened Saturday.  We'll discuss the media's take on the battle later.

In the meantime, the banter between Kristen Stewart and Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron was witty and shows the potential chemistry to come when the panel finally met at Comic-Con today.

Cinema Blend reported that Theron said she just met Stewart but "but I know she's going to give me a run for her money and I'm ready for it bitch let's go!"

Sorry Charlize, last time I check, Snow White lives happily ever after.  But bring it Stewart will.

Movieline reports that Stewart did not initially jump at the chance to play Snow White but said, "she [Snow White] is one of the most heavy-handedly sincere [characters] seriously doesn't let her heart cloud her mind. Also I get to have a sword and stuff".

You can read the full transcriptions of the panel's appearance here and here.

Again, we've learned that there will be 8 dwarfs because Disney has the licensing to have 7.  But Producer Joe Roth indicated that one of the dwarfs will die as a way to get around that problem.

From all accounts, the cast was friendly and excited about the project.  New director, Rupert Sanders seemed to impress the media masses as well as the fans with his presentation.  Taking into considering that this will be his first big feature film, that took a lot of doing especially when the pens want something negative to write. 

Josh Dicky of Variety has posted his story here at  His account provides the fans a clear picture of what SWATH is about.  He also gives a positive "thumbs up" to the project. 

This is in stark contrast to the scathing report Melissa Silverstein wrote on Indie Wire regarding the stereotypes perpetuated by Relativity's 'Snow White. 

The Hollywood Reporter's positive report is a sure sign that Universal's version has a leg up in the "Snow White Wars" as well.

THR states it this way:

"Now it’s on, people!

The game of one-upmanship between Universal and Relativity over their competing Snow White movies ramped up at Comic-Con—and Universal now has the edge.

A day after Relativity released a first-look photo of Lilly Collins as Snow White in its untitled movie, Universal arrived in San Diego with a swath of character photos from Snow White and the Huntsman, including Kirsten Stewart holding a sword and shield as Snow White, Charlize Theron looking menacing as the dagger-wielding Evil Queen, Chris Hemsworth as the hunky Huntsman and Sam Claflin as a prince.

And while its movie doesn’t start production until August, Universal still made a big impression with a well-received presentation of test footage and director Rupert Sanders’ commercials to get audience excited.

All this compared to Relativity’s Comic-Con no-show for its Snow White, which has been in production in Montreal since June."

You can read the rest of THR's report of the panel here. All reports pretty much agree that without filming a single frame yet, the presentation was impressive and the pictures seen on the official SWATH movie site here and on the official Facebook page here shows the impressiveness and where this film is potentially going.

If there is any sign of where this is headed, Universal and the producers should be pretty comfortable with the mass of positive tweets that sent 'Snow White' trending world-wide (see below).

So Comic-Con ends with a bang for SWATH and Kristen Stewart but her year is not even close to being over. 

With 2 films coming out this year (On the Road, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1) and with the filming of SWATH, Stewart's 2011 is definitely a bench mark for this long and young career.

Today gave every SWATH fan what they expected and then some.  The cast was great and the media was impressed.  The only thing left is to get it in the can and into theaters.  

You can watch the full panel presentation here as provided by a fan (@315Melon).

Remember that Comic-Con will post Hall H panels here.  So watch out for their posts as well.

We here at The Enchanting Beauty would like to thank those of you who kept us entertained on Twitter with your questions and providing insights as to all the Comic-Con hoopla either knowingly or unknowingly. 

Continue to stay with us for the news about SWATH..."More news, less gossip."   Happy SWATH at Comic-Con Day!!

'Snow White' trended world-wide during the panel's presentation.




We don't know where to begin with this one because our hearts are just a flutter with the excitement of receiving actual live tweets from the stage with pics to boot. 

SWATH Producer Palak Patel informed fans of this wonderful gift via a tweet. But that wasn't all. He provided the fans with the route status of Sam Claflin and Chris Hemsworth.

The tweets were coming so fast and so furious, we just took screen shots of his entire page...what the heck! We have a feeling it's going to be exactly like this tomorrow as well and we're going to love every minute of it too!

Here's what he said today:
