The movie's first teaser trailer highlights many elements that were already known, the focus is on Millie Bobby Brown's struggle to survive against a dragon, while also giving a glimpse into the expansive fantasy world and her escape plan. The trailer showcases glowing rocks, colossal swords, the formidable dragon, and introduces actors Angela Bassett, Robin Wright, and Nick Robinson.

Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, the film centers on Brown's character, Princess Elodie, who discovers she's slated for sacrifice after agreeing to marry a prince. Trapped in a cave with a dragon, she takes matters into her own hands to find a way out. The tagline, "This is not a fairytale," highlights the narrative's departure from traditional themes.

In an interview with Netflix, Brown discussed her role:

 

She’s a damsel who doesn’t need to be saved,” Brown told Netflix. “She saves herself in many ways. It subverts what you expect: You’re expecting the prince to turn around and save her, and… no. Don’t wait for the prince.”

 

The new official trailer has just been released, showcasing Brown facing off against a massive dragon. Watch the trailer below.

In the trailer, we see a departure from typical fantasy tales, as Elodie must find a way to save herself from the formidable dragon. Scenes show her scaling cave walls and equipping herself with survival gear to evade the relentless pursuit of the monster. Additionally, glimpses of settings outside the castle hint at the unfolding chaos within the storyline.

In "Damsel," audiences can expect riveting supporting performances from powerhouse actors Angela Bassett and Robin Wright, who portray Elodie's stepmother and new mother-in-law, respectively. The film also features notable contributions from Ray Winstone, Nick Robinson, Brooke Carter, and Shohreh Aghdashloo, enriching the story with layers of intrigue and magic.
