Netflix's The Crown: Season 1 — Final Trailer


added: Thu, Oct 27th '16

Netflix has released a brand-new trailer for the serialized British period drama "The Crown," chronicling the early life of Queen Elizabeth II.

Created and written by two-time Oscar-nominated writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon), the Netflix series stars English actress Claire Foy (Wolf Hall) as a 25-year-old Elizabeth II, while five-time Emmy-winner John Lithgow is portraying an ailing British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Though the ten-episode drama will be focusing on Elizabeth's marriage with Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh (played by Doctor Who's Matt Smith), and her relationship with her sister, Princess Margaret (Me Before You's Vanessa Kirby), the new trailer seems to indicate that the story is also going to deal with her political life as a young Queen serving her country during a delicate transition of power between two strong-willed Prime Ministers.

Also starring Jeremy Northam, Jared Harris, and Ben Miles, the series will launch with an opening hour-long episode directed by Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader).

"The Crown: Season 1" is premiering next week on Friday November 4, exclusively on Netflix.

The Crown focuses on Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world's most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne....a new era is dawning. Peter Morgan's masterfully researched scripts reveal the Queen's private journey behind the public facade with daring frankness. Prepare to be welcomed into the coveted world of power and privilege and behind locked doors in Westminster and Buckingham Palace....the leaders of an empire await.
