Here is the plot synopsis for Netflix’s Damsel:
It’s a taut contained thriller about a Princess that thinks she is marrying a prince only to be thrown into a pit where she is being sacrificed to a dragon.
Brown plays Elodie, who’s anxiously awaiting her wedding to Prince Henry and feeling pressure from her Father, who needs the money her marriage will bring, to be a good, obedient wife. After marrying Henry, Elodie realizes she’s been tricked into becoming a sacrificial offering for a cruel dragon who intends to eat her. Elodie must fight her way out of the dragon’s lair and eventually saves herself by slaying the Dragon.
As of October 2021, only Millie Bobby Brown is known to be among the cast of Damsel. Millie has just finished filming Stranger Things season 4 and is currently filming Enola Holmes 2 alongside Henry Cavill and she has also The Thing About Jellyfish lined up in her Netflix pipeline.
Netflix’s Damsel is currently scheduled to enter production in the first quarter of 2022 according to issue 1265 of Production Weekly.
Netflix hasn’t set the official release date for Damsel. But it would be safe to assume that the film will release in late 2022 or 2023 release based on the fact that filming will start in 2022.
