The movie, narrated by Ridley, follows a 13-year-old girl named Aisholpan, as she trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her family to become an eagle hunter.
“She’s strong, she’s brave and she’s a total natural,” Ridley says about Aisholpan in the trailer. “But when the competition ends, the real test begins,” she teases.
“The Eagle Huntress is directed by Otto Bell.
Ridley is also an exec producer on the film along with Morgan Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, Dan Cogan, Regina K. Scully, Marc H. Simon, Barbara Dobkin, Susan MacLaury.
It features the original song “Angel by the Wings” performed by Sia, which she co-wrote with Greg Kurstin.
“The Eagle Huntress” originally premiered at Sundance and will open in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 28, followed by a national release in the following weeks.
