After last year’s teaser the first full trailer for Netflix fantasy movie Damsel has arrived.
The official synopsis reads: “A dutiful damsel agrees to marry a handsome prince, only to find the royal family has recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an ancient debt. Thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon, she must rely on her wits and will to survive.”
Star Millie Bobbie Brown said: “She’s a damsel who doesn’t need to be saved. She saves herself in many ways.
“It subverts what you expect: You’re expecting the prince to turn around and save her, and… no. Don’t wait for the prince.”
Damsel co-stars Angela Bassett, Robin Wright, Nick Robinson, and Ray Winstone.
Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo said: “What I really loved in the script from Dan Mazeau was embracing the idea of a fantasy adventure and a princess and dragon story, but taking it into a place [where] it’s completely upside down.
“It was a very intense journey that I was so excited to design and to develop. At the core, this is such a beautiful story about a young woman becoming a strong, independent, and empowered adult. Elodie doesn’t have any kind of support. It’s a real survival experience.”
Damsel hits Netflix on March 8.
