Although Europe‘s official song and dance showcase has been canceled due to COVID-19, Netflix will step in with its own comedy parody of the event called Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. Starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams as Icelandic musicians Lars and Sigrit, the duo “are given the opportunity of a lifetime to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition,” according to an official synopsis.

As previously stated in our best movies and TV shows round-up, the film appears as if it will receive the Blades of Glory treatment, another Will Ferrell parody film that instead goofily tackles professional ice skating. Pierce Brosnan also stars as Lars’ disapproving father, while Dan Stevens serves as the duo’s Russian competitor Alexander Lemtov. It also appears the small-town duo will face “high stakes, scheming rivals, and onstage mishaps” that test their bond.

Before the trailer above arrived, Netflix released a music trailer featuring Ferrell and McAdams in character singing the film’s “Volcano Man” song, which can be viewed below.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is expected to arrive on the platform June 26.
