The series we’ve all been waiting for has finally got a trailer and we are very excited! Starring 13 Reasons Why Katherine Langford, Cursed is a new take on the traditional story of King Arthur. Told through the eyes of Nimue, the legend follows a woman who is destined to become the ‘Lady of the Lake’. Bet you want to watch it right now!
Based on the novel Tom Wheeler, Cursed will focus on the Arthurian characters but with a big twist. The trailer highlights the epic fight for the sword, with Nimue voicing that the sword belongs to the ‘one true king’. But is it a King the sword belongs to? While the trailer is only a minute long, we get to see a glimpse of how great Cursed looks. The trailer ends with Nimue announcing ‘what if the sword chooses a queen?’. We have goosebumps.
Netflix describes the coming-of-age series as “the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.”Wow, it sounds amazing. And we don’t have very long to wait either. The streaming service is dropping the series on July 17th, meaning we have less than a month to prepare ourselves for the fantasy drama. While it’s been a pretty bleak year, this looks set to turn up the action in our lives!
There’s been some uncertainty about how Netflix will schedule upcoming content after the effects of the pandemic. But life is slowly resuming, with series such as The Witcher back in action. While we wait for the Witcher, it looks like Cursed will be just as good! July 17th, set a reminder!
