As Kristen Stewart nears the end of her days as Bella Swan, she's getting uber excited about playing Snow White in the highly-anticipated new flick Snow White and the Huntsman.

The 21-year-old actress kept herself busy at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego promoting not only Breaking Dawn: Part 1 alongside her cast, but she also opened up about why she decided to take on the fairytale role of Snow White!  Our own Katie Krause has the new K-Stew video and the first set of promo pictures for the upcoming film in today's edition of the Hollywire Hot Minute!

In the newly-released set of promo pics, Stewart is sporting some seriously heavy duty armor, a sword and a shield -- a much different look than the Snow White that Lily Collins will be playing, which also set for release in 2012. Chris Hemsworth, carrying an ax over his shoulder in his pic, looks strong and suave.  The Thor actor is set to take on the role of The Huntsman, who in the film becomes Snow's protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the queen.

Snow White and the Huntsman, which is slated to be a gritty, action-packed take on the popular Disney flick, also stars Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen and Sam Claflin as Prince Charmant.  The movie is set to go into production in the next couple of weeks and will hit theaters in June 2012.
