Posted on 24 Jun 2020

Eurovision fans still in mourning for the cancelled 2020 edition of their beloved Song Contest have got a pick-me-up coming their way this Friday, courtesy of a new film being released by streaming-service giant Netflix.


Co-written by and starring Will Ferrell, the spoof movie, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga, tells the tale of an Icelandic singing duo (played by Ferrell and Rachel McAdams) as they represent their country at the event in 1972 (16 years before Iceland actually took part for the first time).

The movie also stars Pierce Brosnan, as Ferrell’s character’s dad, and features a cameo from Eurovision’s UK commentator, Graham Norton, who plays himself.


The film was originally scheduled for release back in May to coincide with the 2020 Contest, which, along with so many other events, fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga is released on Netflix on Friday (26 June).
