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

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 reprised their previous roles, and Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain joined the story.

Where was The Huntsman Winters War filmed

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. You can also find the Snow White and the Huntsman locations following this link.

The Huntsman & The Ice Queen Drehorte
One of the most remarkable features of this building is the scissor arches in the transept.

Its design, out of the ordinary, fits perfectly in the fantasy universe pictured in the movie.

The abbey ruins
The romantic remains of Waverley Abbey, abandoned since the 16th-century, are the perfect location for productions set in a medieval world.

Frensham Little Pond
The Huntsman Winter's War was shot at Frensham Little Pond in 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 and the filming headquarters in Pinewood Studios.

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 were entirely created via CGI.
