The official teaser trailer for Spencer starring Kristen Stewart was released today. First-look photos of Stewart as Princess Diana took the Internet by storm earlier this year. Fans wondered if the American actor could actually take on Diana’s British accent. The teaser gives a microscopic preview of the actor’s skills.
Jackie filmmaker Pablo Larrain takes on Spencer, which is set in 1991. The film takes place over the Christmas holiday as Diana, who was born Diana Frances Spencer, is confronted with a hard decision. Should she end her marriage to Prince Charles or remain in the royal family?
Actor Jack Farthing stars alongside Stewart as the heir adjacent to the British throne.
Although fans have been awaiting Stewart’s British accent, the minute-long teaser trailer only reveals her uttering two words.
“They know everything,” Sally Hawkins, who plays an unidentified role who appears to be a confidant to the Princess of Wales, shares with Diana. She simply responds, “They don’t.”
The teaser was not quite what fans were begging for, but it gives viewers a short, enchanting preview into the luxurious life of the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. The trailer is loaded with glamourous fits and lavish meals. Stewart is pictured on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the trailer, dealing with rumored affairs and ruthless paparazzi.
Spencer is set to debut in theaters November 5.
