The Genuine Eurovision Song Contest may have been called off current year (presently shattered). But the satire film starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams is here to scrape that Euro-musical itch.
Despite being delay due to the current coronavirus pandemic prevalent worldwide, the movie has finally been affirming for release on Netflix within a few weeks.
Eurovision: All about the movie
Formally, the film is given a subject of Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. But distinctly that’s a mouthful so we will go with ‘Eurovision’ only from now on. The film sticks to the Icelandic team, setting one’s heart on musicians Lars (Will Ferrell) and Sigrit Erickssong (Rachel McAdams). As they prepare to stand in for their country and fight in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The film is set in 1972 so there’s a very understandably 70s style to the whole thing. From Ferrell’s long gorgeous locks to McAdams floating blue bohemian dress. The film is co-written by Will Ferrell and SNL. The writer is Andrew Steele and they have been working together on a number of projects.
Eurovision: Release Date
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is all set to be released on Netflix on 26th of June. It is not much longer. So, fans need not wait for it. In spite of the coronavirus pandemic, the film is set to launch.
Eurovision: Is Trailer released yet?
We have a short music video for the song that Lars and Sigrit are supposed to perform at the contest. And we also have a number of advertising shots from Netflix which look quite magnificent.
The cast is very exhilarating. The show fans already know about main roles, Ferrell and McAdams. But Piers Brosnan also catches up as Lars’s father, Erick Erickssong. Moreover, Dan Stevens plays Russia’s entry to the contest, Alexander Lemtov, who is playing a role we are not used to seeing him in. As in, he is shirtless apart from a floor-length coat. Not very concrete any more, are we, Dan?
Demi Lovato is also registered in the cast as Katiana, parallel to Fleabag’s Jamie Demetriou who is playing Kevin Swain and Eurovision superstar Graham Norton also has a cameo as him.
