Damsel Trailer Flips the Princess Trope with Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown has been the face of strong female protagonists since Stranger Things and Enola Holmes, and now she’s ready to go the fantasy route with the upcoming Netflix movie Damsel. The movie is set to hit streaming this March, and Netflix has dropped a new trailer that has Brown pulling a Gandalf and going up against a flaming winged monster.

Check this out:

The official description of the film 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.

The movie is being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who was also the director behind 28 Weeks Later. Brown is also joined by a cast which includes Ray Winstone (Beowulf), Angela Bassett (Black Panther), and Robin Wright (House of Cards).

Just like with Enola Holmes flipping the script on the sleuth detective, Damsel also looks to play with the fantasy genre in that we have a princess that is tasked to slay a dragon herself rather than wait for a prince to save her.

With Stranger Things coming back in 2025, Damsel should be right up the alley for anyone missing Brown on their screens going up against insurmountable odds. Hopefully it has more to say about the fantasy trope, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Watch out for Brown when Damsel hits streaming on March 8, only on Netflix.
