From the producers of the Fast and Furious and John Wick franchises comes an irreverent, action-packed fantasy adventure that upends centuries of fairy tale convention. A Hulu Original, The Princess stars Emmy Award nominee Joey King as a resourceful, strong-willed royal determined to fight to the death to defend her family and kingdom against the cruel usurper seeking her father’s throne.

King earned nominations across the board for her outstanding performance in Hulu’s The Act, including a 2019 Critics’ Choice Award and 2020 Golden Globe Award for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television,” as well as for a 2020 SAG Award for “Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series.” She also made history as the youngest nominee in this category in almost two decades with her 2019 Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.”

Most recently, the actress can be seen in The Kissing Booth 3, which I had the pleasure of speaking with her about, and The In Between. Upcoming, she will star in Sony Pictures’ action-thriller Bullet Train, which premieres exclusively in movie theaters on August 5.

We discussed throwing away the outdated princess stereotype, her extensive training, the movie’s deeper message, and why the role of executive producer was so important to her!
