The first trailer for Will Ferrell’s new movie ‘Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga’ has just dropped.

The movie stars Ferrell as Lars and Rachel McAdams as Sigrit, two aspiring musicians who are nominated to represent their country at the Eurovision.

The film was due to be released to coincide with the actual song contest in May, however the event was cancelled due to coronavirus.

It’s now set for release on June 26th and will be available exclusively on Netflix.

As with all things Eurovision related, Ireland is well-represented.

Pierce Brosnan plays Lars’ father Erick Erickssong, while Graham Norton makes a cameo as a Eurovision commentator.

We’re not sure what Daði Freyr, the actual Icelandic entry this year, would make of the movie.
