Damsel: Meet the Cast of Netflix’s Dark Fantasy

With a rollout of movies for March 2024, Damsel and its eclectic cast would be Netflix’s second original movie for the month. Scheduled for release on Netflix on March 8, the dark fantasy promises lots of action and dragon fire. While it has no Mother of Dragons, audiences can expect to see another female character try to tame a dragon. Like its title, Damsel follows Elodie, a young damsel and noblewoman who marries a handsome Prince.

Princess Elodie quickly realizes the royal family and kingdom hold a dark secret, sacrificing young women every generation to repay an ancient debt. Defying Walt Disney’s Princess tropes, Princess Elodie takes her salvation into her own hands when she discovers there’s no one coming to her rescue. While not an originally unique story, Damsel packs a handful of acting talents. These are Damsel’s top cast on Netflix’s dark fantasy movie.

Millie Bobby Brown as Princess Elodie
