Reliance on limitless illustriousness makes Fantasy a genre easy to lend itself to abyssal descent. The key to success is a concept taken down to its least story carrying capacity. From then the abetments and enshrouds can take hold to manifest their imaginings and bestrews tailored to them. If jumbling of ideas to make intricate embellishments that effectively work, more power to the creators.
An alternative is given to the Snow White(and the Seven Dwarves)‘s tale. It still follows as a sequel to the previous film for what now seems to be the origin of a franchise. The previous onset had transfixed an admixture on Snow White, and a huntsman that aberrated by a spellbinding witch queen. The advantage of The Huntsman is a positional stand alone.

Puns are enough common ground to convene execution. Costume-wise, I it’s similar but a relieved leap from it’s prequel, authoritatively graceful and halfly periodic as strength and teamwork required.
Positionally, the last trinket is not a happy ever after, as the onset had laid its ground—since evil finds another way, like a (shortlived) triumphant laughter. This stands at par with The Dark Crystal.
