The first poster of the Kristen Stewart starrer ‘Spencer’ was released on Wednesday by the Neon studio on their social media handles with the tagline “Every fairy tale ends.”
The film is a biography of Princess Diana of Wales, with the storyline focusing on her marriage to Prince Charles and subsequent divorce. The couple had been married for 15 years when they announced their divorce in August 1996.
Stewart is shown kneeling in a crying stance in the first look for the film, wearing an ivory embroidered strapless ball gown.
According to Deadline, the film's action takes place over three days, including one of Princess Diana's final Christmas holidays in England at the House of Windsor. "We all grew up, at least I did in my generation, reading and understanding what a fairy tale is," the movie's director, Pablo Larraín, mentioned the outlet. "Usually, the prince comes and finds the princess, invites her to become his wife and eventually she becomes queen. That is the fairy tale."
"When someone decides not to be the queen, and says, I'd rather go and be myself, it's a big, big decision," he added. "A fairy tale upside down. I've always been very surprised by that and thought it must have been very hard to do. That is the heart of the movie."
"We decided to get into a story about identity, and around how a woman decides somehow, not to be the queen," Pablo Larraín had told Deadline in June 2020. "She's a woman who, in the journey of the movie decides and realizes that she wants to be the woman she was before she met Charles."
With Kristen Stewart in the lead role, film’s other cast members include Jack Farthing as Prince Charles, Olga Hellsing Cast as Sarah Ferguson Thomas, Douglas Cast as Diana's Father along with Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins, and Sean Harris.
The film is set to release on November 5th, 2021.
