Netflix’s Damsel starring Millie Bobby Brown delayed to 2024
Netflix has confirmed the delay of its highly anticipated fantasy film, Damsel, starring Millie Bobby Brown. Originally set for release on October 13, 2023, the film will now hit screens in 2024.
Fans won’t have to wait too long for a glimpse of the film, as the teaser trailer for Damsel is scheduled to drop on November 11.
The official synopsis of the movie provides a brief insight into the plot: “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.”
Apart from Millie Bobby Brown, the film boasts a talented cast, including Nick Robinson from Jurassic World, Angela Bassett from Black Panther, and Ray Winstone from Black Widow.
The delay in the production and release of both Stranger Things and Damsel is partly attributed to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strikes in Hollywood. There had been speculation about using AI technology to make the teenage cast look younger, given the gap between seasons.
However, executive producer Shawn Levy clarified that such technology would not be used, expressing confidence in the cast’s ability to bring their characters to life.
