Where was The Huntsman Winter's War filmed? Filming Locations Guide

Where was The Huntsman Winters War filmed
Posted by Ra Moon
Winter's War was originally planned to be the second part of Snow White and the Huntsman (2012). But due to the scandal involving lead actress Kristen Stewart having an affair with director Rupert Sanders (who was cheating on his wife), the script was adapted to create this spin-off focused on the Huntsman. This way Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are again in the cast, whilst Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain are joining the story.

The Huntsman Winter's War was primarily filmed in England, although in many instances, a lot of CGI (Computer-generated imagery) was used extensively. In this report we include the few real filming locations where the movie was shot.

The Huntsman & The Ice Queen Drehorte
One of the most remarkable features of this building are the scissor arches in the transept. Its design, out of the ordinary, fits perfectly in a fantasy universe like this. Image by Somersetman

Frensham Little Pond
The Huntsman Winter's War was shot in Frensham Little Pond (Surrey), a location that was also used in the previous film. The shooting locations of the movie have the bonus of being very close to London, like the filming headquarters in Pinewood Studios. Image by Phil Balchin

The Huntsman Winter's War Forest
Some scenes have been filmed in Puzzlewood, in the Forest of Dean (Gloucestershire). The Cursed filming locations also include this awesome magical place. Image courtesy of Universal Pictures

The Huntsman Winter's War Castle
But where are the castle and the icy mountains located? On a hard disk I'm afraid... all those spectacular and whimsical landscapes have been entirely created by CGI.
