Carrie Fisher’s latest film, ‘Wonderwell’ gets an enchanting trailer

Carrie Fisher’s latest film — a magical coming-of-age tale set in Italy — has released its first trailer.

Wonderwell sees a young girl named Violet (played by newcomer Kiera Milward) and her American family – including her sister Savannah (Tiger Free) – move to Italy after becoming the face of a world-renowned designer’s fashion brand ( Rita Ora). When Violet wanders into a forest near the charming medieval village where her family has come to stay, she meets a “fabulous” forest witch, Fisher’s Hazel.


Guided by the witch into a mysterious portal, Violet glimpses what the future holds for her, discovering that she may be faced with a journey from which there is no return. The film’s plot describes it as “an exciting, entertaining and often terrifying journey”. Within an imaginary and enchanting realm, the curious tween will have an experience that will transform her and her world forever.

The minute-and-a-half trailer teases the film’s larger-than-life creatures and its mix of CGI and live-action. It also features Fisher’s Hazel facing Yana of Ora, whose personality is icy and proclaims that her “town” belongs to her, also featuring Yana’s stepson Daniele (Sebastian Croft).

Wonderwell is directed by Vlad Marsavin, written by William Brookfield and produced by Fred Roos, Alexander Roos, Vlad Marsavin, Orian Williams, Lee Rudnicki and Robert Bernacchi. The film is distributed in the US and UK by Vertical Entertainment.

The film is slated for a limited theatrical release through AMC starting June 23, which will be followed by a digital release.

Fisher, who died in 2016 at the age of 60, filmed her appearance in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi – her last turn as Princess turned General Leia – before completing filming of Wonderwell.
