Netflix darling Millie Bobby Brown takes on a fire-breathing dragon in her next movie. Here's everything you need to know about 'Damsel.'
Millie Bobby Brown is only 18 years old and she’s absolutely crushing it on Netflix, with the worldwide hit series Stranger Things and the beloved Enola Holmes films. Millie’s next high-profile gig at the streamer is the fantasy film Damsel, which comes out in late 2023. Millie plays a princess who agrees to marry a rival prince, only to realize that she’s actually the sacrifice for a fire-breathing dragon. The epic first glimpse of Millie in Damsel was shown in Netflix’s Save The Dates: 2023 Films Preview.
Fans are so excited to see Millie dominate yet another project for Netflix. Here’s everything you need to know about her fantasy flick Damsel, including the release date, the cast, and more.
Damsel will be released October 13, 2023 on Netflix. There are no plans for a theatrical release at this time.
The official trailer for Damsel hasn’t been released yet. Look out for that in the coming months. But Netflix did include brief footage from the movie in the 2023 Films Preview. We see Millie’s character bowing down to a queen — before she’s wielding a sword in a cave to fend off a dragon.
Millie stars in Damsel as Princess Elodie, who is described as a “dutiful damsel” by Netflix. She signed onto the film in November 2020 as part of her lucrative deal with Netflix. Angela Bassett plays Lady Bayford, Elodie’s step mother. Nick Robinson plays Prince Henry, who Elodie agrees to marry. Robin Wright plays Queen Isabelle. Ray Winstone plays the King. Brooke Carter, Ricky Guillart, and Shoreh Aghdashloo also star.
Oscar-nominated Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is the director of Damsel. Dan Mazeau wrote the script. Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are the producers. They’ve collaborated before on other films like Hustle and The Gray Man. Millie is also a producer on Damsel. Rounding out the creative team is cinematographer Larry Fong, editor John Gilbert, and music composer Jane Antonia Cornish. Filming took place in Portugal from February 2022 to July 2022.

Netflix’s official plot description for Damsel reads, “Damsel sees Brown as a dutiful, well, damsel, who agrees to marry a handsome prince — only to discover it was all a trap: The royal family recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an ancient debt. She’s then thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon, relying solely on her wits and will to survive.”
As Damsel‘s release date nears closer, there will be more updates on the film. Millie will probably do interviews to promote her princess flick. HollywoodLife will continue with the updates on the film right here!
