Netflix has postponed the release of its much-anticipated fantasy thriller film, Damsel, to next year, due to the now-resolved SAG-AFTRA strike. Thus, the October 13, 2023 film was postponed to a 2024 release, serving as an appetizer till the entrée of Stranger Things Season 5 is served. But Tudum did not wish to disappoint its subscribers and Millie Bobby Brown fans, so they dropped a second, longer teaser for the film.

Cast and crew of Damsel

Written by Dan Mazeau, the project is helmed by director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and executively produced by Millie Bobby Brown and Mazeau himself. The cast comprises of Millie Bobby Brown, Nick Robinson, Ray Winstone, Robin Wright, Brooke Carter, Angela Basset, Ricky Guillart, Saif Mohsen, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Elmano Sancho, Sam Sharma, Sonya Nisa, and Erickson Santos Gomes.

What is Damsel about?

The film follows the adventures of Princess Elordie (Brown), who is trapped in an arranged marriage to Prince Harry (Robinson) as she is tricked into being sacrificed to a dragon, by her mother-in-law Queen Isabelle (Wright), to keep away an ancient curse. The teaser-trailer, dropped on November 12, shows a heckled Brown running from the shadowy limbs of a monster in dark woods, for survival.

What does the teaser-trailer of Damsel show?

The teaser, set against the song Run From Me by Timber Timbre features a bedraggled beauty with brains, who only survives by relying on the latter and ignoring the former. It is only when princess Elordie manages to break free from the vanity of clean, royal clothes and picks up the sword, will she be able to take on a full-fledged dragon.

But the dragon is not her only enemy, the trailer features sinister, golden mask-wearing men, along with female cult worshippers and a ruthless royal family that does not blink before sacrificing countless young women for ‘the greater good’ of their kingdom.
