Kirsten Stewart, 31, strikes an uncanny resemblance to the late Princess Diana - mother of Prince William and Harry, who recently unveiled a statue in her honor - in the first trailer for the new upcoming drama "Spencer". The trailer comes only a day after the dramatic and eye-catching poster for the film was revealed.

The film, which is reportedly set to premiere at the Venice film festival - which takes place from September 1 to 11 - takes a look at a weekend in the life of Diana Spencer from "Jackie" director Pablo Larraín.

The first trailer for Spencer, the much-anticipated Diana, Princess of Wales drama, has been unveiled to the public, showing actress Kirsten Stewart transforms into the late Princess, striking an uncanny resemblance. According to reports, the film will focus on three days over the Christmas period at Sandringham, where Diana chose to end her marriage to Charles, Prince of Wales.

“It’s hard not to feel protective over her,” Kirsten Stewart said about Diana back in 2020. “She was so young ... everyone’s perspective is different, and there’s no way to get everything right ... what is fact in relation to personal experience.”
