Stranger Things may be gearing up for its final season, but star Millie Bobby Brown isn’t any less busy. Besides her Enola Holmes movies, she’s set to star in an upcoming fantasy-action movie called Damsel.
Watch the reveal teaser here:
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.
Besides Brown, the movie also has a cast which includes the likes of Robin Wright, Angela Bassett, and Ray Winstone. The film is also being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who was behind filmslike 28 Weeks Later and 2011’s Intruders starring Clive Owen.
While everyone is familiar with the term “Damsel in Distress” we can expect Damsel to possibly subvert multiple tropes when it comes to the fantasy genre. We already have a princess and a dragon; but how will they handle other expected fantasy elements like the prince and evil queen, and other kinds of fantastical creatures.
With the SAG-AFTRA Strike officially over, Brown and the rest of her Stranger Things co-stars can get back to work; but we will have to wait before we can get back to the world of Hawkins, Indiana. Hopefully Damsel will manage to keep fans satisfied until then.
Damsel is set to release on Netflix sometime in 2024.
