The first of two live-action Snow White movies set for release next year is getting a slightly ironic title: “Mirror Mirror.”

That’s the name Relativity Media has picked for its comedy-action adventure starring Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and Lily Collins as Snow White. The movie is set for release March 16.

Less than three months later, on June 1, Comcast Corp.‘s Universal Pictures is set to release its action flick starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in the title roles of “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

Although both movies make use of the fairy tale made famous by the Brothers Grimm, the studios are saying they’re different enough and spaced far enough apart to both succeed.
