Damsel trailer – Millie Bobby Brown stars in Netflix’s ‘upside down’ fairy tale | Films | Entertainment

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.
