Earlier, Stewart got into talking with Jimmy Kimmel and opened up about her upcoming film. She said that Spencer takes place over three days. And it is a really poetic film. It will give a clear insight into what Lady Diana’s inner thoughts were, rather than giving out new information about her life.
Lorrain also talked about the film. He said that they wanted to make the film about identity and about how a woman decides to step down from her title as the queen. Plus, he describes Lady Diana in the movie as a woman, who in the journey decides, and realizes that she wants to be the person she was before she met Charles.
“The key is how she discovers during the process of the movie that what she really needs to do is be who she wants to be,” Lorrain added. In short, the film will be about Diana’s self-discovery and finding her own strength with the help of her children and beliefs.
Spencer (2021) Release Date, Cast, And Plot
The production will start soon. According to sources, Spencer has begun the principal production, and the filming will commence soon too. However, no release date has been put on the table yet. Thus, we have to wait for a while before we get a specific premiere date.
Unlike other movies and shows that showcase Lady Diana’s life, Spencer will focus on the different side of the royal. Spencer will focus on the three important days of her life. It takes place at the royal family’s Sandringham Estate. The family usually spends their holidays at the estate. Meanwhile, she celebrates Christmas and traditions with her children; she also realizes how her life has taken an unexpected path after her marriage to Charles.
The movie will not tell the story of Princess Diana’s unfortunate death. But, it will depict her fraying marriage and her unconditional love for her sons- Prince Charles and Prince Harry. We will also see her fighting with herself as she decides to leave the Royal family for her good.
Spencer is filled with brilliant stars. Besides Kristen Stewart, BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall (“Mr. Turner”), Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), and Sean Harris (“Mission: Impossible”) will also appear in the film.
