If you think Hulu’s The Princess is going to give you Disney vibes, think again. This is a different kind of royalty, and we don’t only mean that because she’s hella badass, though there’s that. The movie, which is set to premiere on Hulu July 1st is more action thriller than fairy tale, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t paying attention.
What? Girls don’t just like the fairy tales. Sometimes they want to see the princess kick ass and save herself, which is apparently what we’re getting with this Joey King-led story. The movie also stars Dominic Cooper, Olga Kurylenko and Veronica Ngo.
You can check out the official trailer and synopsis below:
When a beautiful, strong-willed princess refuses to wed the cruel sociopath to whom she is betrothed, she is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her scorned, vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the princess must protect her family and save the kingdom.
The Princess will stream July 1st on Hulu.
