Stranger things in Damsel

Netflix has released an official trailer for Damsel.

Read the official synopsis:

"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."

Starring Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) as the titular damsel, it evokes childhood memories of Disney's dark fantasy film Dragonslayer.

“She’s a damsel who doesn’t need to be saved,” Brown told Netflix. “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.”

Speaking with Total Film, Oscar-nominated director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo said Brown was able to convey the emotion they needed for the movie, calling her “exceptional.” The filmmaker added, “She understood that this needed to be an extreme survival experience. And in order to make that believable, you have to convey suffering and pain.”

Damsel debuts exclusively on Netflix on 8th March.
