Review of Diana: The Musical Trailer Sets Netflix Debut Ahead of Broadway Return

Netflix has released the official trailer for the filmed version of the Broadway hit Diana: The Musical, which aims to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Princess Diana. The musical event is scheduled to make its debut on Friday, October 1, ahead of the show’s return to Broadway after it was temporarily suspended last year due to the ongoing pandemic.

The upcoming musical also comes after the successful fourth season run of The Crown, where it featured the introduction of Emma Corrin as Princess Diana. Corrin’s breakout performance had earned the 25-year-old actress’ first Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama and is currently nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Diana: The Musical was filmed last year without an audience at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre. It features the appearance of the original Broadway cast including Jeanna de Waal as Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles, and Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth II, and more. They are all set to return for the show’s upcoming resumption of live performances on November 2, followed by an official opening night on November 17.

“It tells the story of one of the most beloved women of modern times,” reads the official synopsis. “Engaged to a prince she barely knows, 19-year-old Diana Spencer is thrust onto the world stage and, overnight, becomes the most famous woman in the world. As she struggles to navigate her way within the rigid structure of the royal family, Princess Diana finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, eventually finding her voice by devoting herself to those in need. Forced to endure a media spotlight brighter than the world has ever known, Princess Diana defies all expectations to emerge as her own woman and create a legacy that will endure forever.”
