Oscar-nominated Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is the director of Damsel. Dan Mazeau wrote the script. Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are the producers. They’ve collaborated before on other films like Hustle and The Gray Man. Millie is also a producer on Damsel. Rounding out the creative team is cinematographer Larry Fong, editor John Gilbert, and music composer Jane Antonia Cornish. Filming took place in Portugal from February 2022 to July 2022.

Plot Details

Netflix’s official plot description for Damsel reads, “Damsel sees Brown as a dutiful, well, damsel, who agrees to marry a handsome prince — only to discover it was all a trap: The royal family recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an ancient debt. She’s then thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon, relying solely on her wits and will to survive.”

Millie teased her character in an interview with Netflix’s Tudum. “She’s a damsel who doesn’t need to be saved. She saves herself in many ways. It subverts what you expect: You’re expecting the prince to turn around and save her, and… no. Don’t wait for the prince,” the actress said.
