Netflix has released ‘recent images of fresh fantasy play ‘Cursed‘, which is being described as synonymous to Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games.
Based on the New York Times bestselling book of the exact same name (CURSED), the series is a re-imagination of the legend starring 13 Reasons why, celebrity Katherine Langford as the hero.
The story unfurls through the eyes of Langford’s Nimue, a young girl with a talent who’s destined to develop into the strong – and awful – Lady of the Lake.
She finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a man that is humble, while on a search to find Merlin and send an ancient sword.
Over the course of her trip, against the Red Paladins and their complicit King Uther, Nimue will become a sign of rebellion and courage.
Netflix states ‘Cursed’ is a story whose topics are recognizable to our time: the obliteration of this natural world, spiritual terror, senseless war, and finding the courage.
Fans have been given flashes of Jennifer Lawrence as Hunger Games heroine Katniss Evergreen preparing her bow and arrow shares similarity with langford’s sword-wielding Nimue.
