The Princess trailer: Joey King can be seen in a wedding dress fighting for her own happy ending as she says ‘I am not a piece of property to barter’

Joey King is not your typical fairytale queen in her latest project.

The 22-year-old actress makes it clear that she wants to play by her own rules, as she was seen on Thursday in the trailer for the Hulu action fantasy The Princess, which opens on July 1.

The quick preview shows the dutiful daughter walking on her father’s arm down the aisle in a crowded cathedral, but when it comes time to say “I do,” she declines, becoming a runaway bride, declaring, “I’m not a piece of property to trade’, and then the fun begins.

Her future husband, played by Dominic Cooper, 44, is described as a “cruel sociopath.”

He wants to take the throne and is relentless in his pursuit of her royal highness as his key to the kingdom. When she won’t submit, the tyrant locks his unwilling bride in a rogue-style tower.
