We all know the damage called by COVID-19 is huge but one of the biggest losses is that incurred by the Eurovision. For all those who don’t know that Eurovision is , it is the biggest song festival of the world. But music fans will not have to worry much about it as the makers are kind of looking forward to a comedy about Eurovision. Not sure but kind and sort of.
Eurovision was first announced in June 2018, the movie was shot throughout 2019. The film was initially schedules to release in May 2020 together with the Eurovision song contest of this year, however the delay is now mandatory.
Will Ferrell attended the final of the 2018 Contest as research, and he and co-star Rachel McAdams were also spotted at the dress rehearsals of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Israel.
The movie is now officially to be released on Netflix on June 26, 2020. So the wait is only for a few weeks now!
The story of the movie revolves around the Icelidian singers who are given a chance to present their country in the Eurovision contest. The movie is set 17 years ago actually when Iceland starting competing in the competition.
The movie is a light hearted comedy written by Will Ferrell and Andrew Steele. The movie is expected to be quaky but nothing can really be said until the official trailer of the movie releases.
The movie is entirely and largely packed with huge blockbuster stars including Will Ferrell (Lars Erickssong) and Rachel McAdams (Sigrit Ericksdottir) playing Iceland’s entry in the song contest. They are accompanied by few other stars known as Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens and Demo Lovato.
There has been no update on anything called the trailer of the movie but a teaser was released on 16 May. It was the same day this year when the Grand Finale of the Eurovision was to be held but was cancelled due to the Corona Virus.
The track ‘Volcano Man’, performed by Ferrell and McAdams’s characters, feels so authentically Eurovision that it’s hard to believe it’s not a genuine Euro-pop classic from the 1970s.
One of the most interesting things about the movie is its exotic location of Edinburgh which gives the viewer chills and the just right feel of the movie.
