The princess (ThePrincess) is an upcoming movie Star+ that reinvents the concept of classic fairy tales, since the damsel in distress saves herself and does not need to be defended by anyone else. Joey King (the kissing booth Y The Act) stars in this story set in medieval times where being a woman involves the duty of getting married and raising a family. However, this princess does not agree to follow those imposed parameters and she will not hesitate to put her skills as a warrior into practice.
Directed by Le Van Kiet and written by Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton, the film follows “a strong-willed beautiful princess refuses to marry the cruel sociopath to whom she is engaged, is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With a suitor she despises, who is vengefully determined to take her father’s throne, the princess must protect her family and save the kingdom.”.
This typical fairy tale plot will turn into a fight to the death when the young noblewoman reveals herself as the skillful and formidable princess who not only wears dresses, but also knows how to wield a sword, jump between castle windows and hit a good blow to whoever earned it.
In addition to the American actress in the leading role, the cast includes performances by Dominic Cooper, Olga Kurylenko Y veronica. The film will be released under the 20th Century Studios label and is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Toby Jaffe and Derek Kolstad; King and Guy Riedel are listed as executive producers. The princess will be available to view from June 22 in the catalog of Star+. In the United States, it can be seen from July 1 through Hulu.
