Amazon Studios combines the worlds of fantasy and reality in its upcoming show Carnival Row. Starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, the show explores a Victorian world full of all manner of mythological creatures.
Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) star in Carnival Row, a series set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing population struggles to coexist with humans – forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.
The first official trailer for the show has been released, giving us a tease of what to expect.
Two previous videos served as prologues to the series, giving two very different backgrounds when told from the perspectives of Vignette and Philo, the two main characters.
Carnival Row will be available on Amazon Prime on August 30th.
