It’s no secret that Hollywood loves period pieces. (Did a little show called Bridgerton ring a bell?) But since fans have been poetic about how Regé-Jean Page no longer plays the handsome Simon Basset, it’s time to turn our attention to another Netflix period piece set around the same time: Persuasion.
If you are a fan of Jane Austen, you are probably familiar with the classic from 1817. Persuasion follows a modern young woman (well, modern in the 19th century at least) who must choose between her former lover or put the past behind her and follow the ~ rules of society ~.
Isn’t it like we’re about to have another exciting love affair with Netflix? Since the streaming giant broke the news of the adaptation in April 2021, you probably want all the details hidden, whether it’s the cast, premiere dates, and more. Lucky for you, we’ve got all the latest information – and a few Persuasion throw photos to show yourself too.
Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming movie:
First of all: what is Persuasion even about?
If you’ve never heard of this classic Jane Austen novel, maybe it’s time to pick up the book? No? Okay, anyway, here’s a quick recap of the story straight from Netflix:
“Living with her snobbish family on the verge of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is a nonconformist woman with modern sensibilities. listen to his heart when it comes to second chances. Adapted from the novel by Jane Austen. “
Come on, you must be addicted to that alone, but it raises an immediate question: will Netflix stay true to the original book or will it go and do its own thing, 21st century Hollywood? The streaming giant has sort of promised a mix of the two, which hopefully means moviegoers will have a new take on the story, but Austen purists will still have moments that stay true to the novel.
Good to know. Now who’s in the Persuasion throw?
The three big stars are aligned, and trust us when we say … you’re going to faint because of all of them. Here is Dakota Johnson as our beautiful heroine Anne Elliot:
And here is British actor Cosmo Jarvis as charming Captain Fredrick Wentworth:
And we come can not forget Henry Golding as handsome Mr. Elliot, Anne’s cousin:
Who else wants them to be that golden cup of tea now?
When Persuasion come out, what is the release date?
Keep your eyes peeled for 2022, because according to the Netflix Twitter account, that’s when we can expect Dakota, Cosmo, and Henry to work their Jane Austen magic on our Netflix lineups.
Production on the film began in May 2021, so expect to see more photos from the set this year.
Is there already a movie trailer?
Unfortunately, other than the first few photos, there isn’t much more to report in terms of trailers or previews. For now though … maybe just watch a few Bridgerton?
