We are now just a week away from the release of the Netflix Original Movie “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga”. Film reviewers have begun to get their hands on a pre-release copy of the Will Ferrell-led film and more details are beginning to be revealed. Beware of spoilers ahead!
Numerous Eurovision star appearances
According to Swedish magazine Moviezine, numerous Eurovision contestants will make cameo appearances in the movie. In what is described as a “pompous pop medley” party scene, Eurovision winners Loreen, Alexander Rybak, Conchita Wurst and Netta, as well as 2019 Swedish Eurovision representative John Lundvik, will all contribute.
In addition, Moviezine states that further cameo appearances will be made by 2016 Eurovision winner Jamala as well as France’s 2010 and 2019 representatives Jessy Matador and Bilal Hassani respectively, Estonia’s 2018 star Elina Nechayeva and Moldova’s 2019 entrant Anna Odobescu.
Molly Sandén to voice entire film
It’s not just visually where Eurovision stars are making appearances. It has now been confirmed that 2006 Swedish Junior Eurovision representative and multiple-time Melodifestivalen finalist, Molly Sandén, will be the singing voice of Rachel McAdams’ character Sigrit Ericksdottir throughout the film. We already heard Sandén in action for the first time with the release of “Volcano Man” last month.
