Eurovision — the fabulous music and dance showcase the place European nations compete for glory — is canceled this 12 months because of COVID-19 considerations. In order to fill the Eurovision void in all our hearts, Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams don bedazzled jumpsuits and tackle the persona of Icelandic duo Fire Saga in an upcoming Netflix film.
Aptly titled Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, the film appears to be like like a Blades of Glory tackle Eurovision, as Lars (Ferrell) and Sigrit (McAdams) show themselves worthy of competing on this planet’s largest music and dance competitors. Pierce Brosnan stars as Lars’ disapproving father, with Dan Stevens as horny Russian competitor Alexander Lemtov.
Before the primary trailer dropped, Netflix launched a music video for one among Fire Saga’s in-universe songs. Titled “Volcano Man,” the digital tune options Will Ferrell’s ominous grunting in addition to hovering views of the Icelandic panorama. And it would simply get caught in your head.
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga debuts on Netflix on June 26.
