AF Studios have revealed the teaser trailer for the period drama “Margrete – Queen of the North”, the first biopic about Queen Margaret I of Denmark, Sweden and Norway. She was the founder of the Kalmar Union that joined the Scandinavian kingdoms together for over a century.

The producers, SF Studios’ Birgitte Skov and Lars Bredo Rahbek, told Variety the film broke new ground. “A grand period movie helmed by a female director with such high ambitions is a rarity in Scandinavian film. Let’s hope this is a new direction and the shape of things to come.”

Rikke Ennis, CEO at REinvent International Sales, said “Margrete – Queen of the North” is a “dream project”, and that the film would “stand out as a modern classic. [..] Rarely do we see a project of this size in the Nordics and with a female power-team consisting of acclaimed director Charlotte Sieling and award-winning actress Trine Dyrholm, we have no doubt that this film will be sold world-wide.”

The release is planned for the third quarter of this year.
