Sam Claflin (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) accompanies the film’s cast of international superstars as William, the young duke long enchanted by Snow White’s defiance and innate purity. He is joined in this quest by dwarves accompanying Snow White and the Huntsman on their fantastical journey.
