Official Trailer for ‘Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga’ Released!


42 countries, hundreds of performers, and a worldwide audience of 180 million … this is Eurovision.

The long-awaited trailer for Netflix’s upcoming comedy film, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, has finally been released.

Directed by David Dobkin and written by Andrew Steele and Will Ferrell, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga stars Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens, and Demi Lovato. It follows the story of Lars Erickssong (Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (McAdams), two small-town Icelandic singers who are given the opportunity to chase their pop star dreams at the Eurovision Song Contest (which is a real, annual international song competition, the 65th edition of which was unfortunately cancelled this year due to COVID-19).

Check out the trailer below.

The trailer sets the stage for the film, as we learn that Iceland isn’t very confident in their begrudging choice to nominate Lars and Sigrit to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest. (“I hate them!” “Absolutely terrible,” ” … but we have no choice.”) Lars is also on a seemingly impossible mission to impress his father, the most handsome man in Iceland (Brosnan).

Dan Stevens’ eccentric character, the Russian contestant Alexander Lemtov, also makes several appearances in the trailer. If it wasn’t already abundantly obvious from the stills that were released in May, there is no doubt now that he will seriously be going all-in for his performance of Alexander’s “Lion of Love.”

Overall and as expected, the trailer makes it clear that audiences will be getting your typical dose of silly Ferrell-brand comedy in this film.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga will arrive on Netflix on June 26.
