> Classic Fairy Tale Turns Bloody in Hulu’s Upcoming ‘The Princess’ Film Starring Joey King

Long gone are the days when all princesses had to do is sit, look pretty and wait for their prince charming to rescue them from whatever ordeal they were going through. 

Furthermore, we are seeing more and more princesses take charge these days, which kind of sends a positive message that women shouldn't let anyone dictate their fate.

After watching the official trailer for the upcoming film, The Princess, my mind went back to the classic The Princess Bride (1987), where a strong-willed princess Buttercup refused to marry the odious Prince Humperdinck.

The Princess' Storyline

The Princess' Storyline

By the way, The Princess Bride is available on Hulu and is one of the most highly-rated fantasy comedy-romance films of the 80s, rating at 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Now back to this 21st-century epic fantasy movie, The Princess features Joey King as a badass princess warrior who refuses to tie the knot with an evil sociopath whose dead set on taking over her father's throne. 

The vindictive suitor has the princess kidnapped and locked in a desolate tower. The take-charge princess chooses to fight to the death to protect her family and save the kingdom. 

This film has classic princess fantasy printed all over it, from locked away in towers (princess Fiona from Shrek) to fighting for family and the kingdom (Mulan).

Cast and Crew Members

Starring alongside King, are Dominic Cooper as Julius, Olga Kurylenko as Kai and Veronica Ngo as Lin. 

King also serves as the film’s executive producer alongside Guy Fiedel. The producers are Neal H. Moritz, Derek Kolstad and Toby Jaffe, with Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton serving as the writers. Le-Van Kiet directs The Princess.

Hold your horses for The Princess' premiere on Friday, July 1 on Hulu.
