Who's the Fairest of Them All?

Above are Ginnifer Goodwin, Lily Collins, and Kristen Stewart and shockingly enough they are all playing the same character this year. Can you guess who? If the title of this post didn't already give away the answer, maybe the pictures after the jump will give you a bigger hint as to the character all of these ladies are playing.

They are all Snow White!

Goodwin plays the character weekly on ABC's Once Upon A Time as well as her alter ego Mary Margaret who doesn't remember her fairy tale past because of the curse set forth by the Evil Queen (Lana Parilla). The reinterpretations are not only limited to the small screens with Collins and Stewart slated to portray the white-skinned girl in films set to release later this year. Directed by visionary director Tarsem Singh, Collins will go toe to toe with Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen seemingly for the heart of one Prince Charming played by Armie Hammer in Mirror Mirror due out later in March. Looking a bit more interesting though is Snow White and the Huntsman coming out early June with Stewart donning a warrior's armor to battle with the deliciously cast Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen with Chris Hemsworth as the titular huntsman.

And why do I bring all of this up today? Well today is the 74th anniversary of the release of the Disney classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Goodwin will be around next year for the 75th anniversary, but it is curious that the two features weren't held back until next year to take advantage of the milestone.
