Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga looks special, and I’m not sure if that’s good or bad? Perhaps it’s what we expect from Will Ferrell? It’s quite goofy, mildly amusing and downright over-the-top, with the teaser being a fully-fledged song. If that’s of any indication of what’s to come, the Eurovision movie will definitely be worth the watch. Considering Will Ferrell’s comedic efforts and his desire to create the film for 20 years, I’m sure it’ll be worth the 2-hour runtime. Although, I’m willing to admit that I’m biased. Not only when it comes to Will Ferrell, who’s among the greatest comedians of all time, but even Eurovision. Why, you may wonder? I’ve simply been a Eurovision fan since I was a child, loving the contest for all it’s worth. Admittedly, I’m still sceptical about this movie and will gladly hold my rights to feel disappointed at a later date!

This Eurovision movie follows the adventures of Lars Erickssong (Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (McAdams), who embark on their magical Eurovision journey! It’s a tale of bickering and conflict, followed most likely by triumphant jubilation. While that’s merely a hunch, I’ve seen enough comedies to know what’s coming. I mean, don’t we all? It’s going to be a feel-good comedy, with a joyous ending that will leave us feeling fulfilled, much like when we watch Eurovision! I desperately need my fix for this year, and considering COVID-19 lead to the cancellation, Will Ferrell’s efforts will have to suffice.
Ferrell’s interpretation of Eurovision will land on Netflix on the 26th of June, 2020! It’s only a few weeks away, so get prepared. That means, you’re gonna need chips and salsa, 2 flavors of popcorn and a fabulous drink to feel ready for the Eurovision movie!
