Queen Dagan is dethroned – and now the future of the queendom is at stake!

Seize Them! is a wonderfully goofy female-fronted comedy that is sure to leave you warm and fuzzy. Couched in the language of villeins and villains, despots and dragons, Seize Them! is a shamelessly fun and farcical fusion of the archaic with the absurd. Our leading lady Dagan (Aimee Lou Wood, Sex Education) is only one of the many sitcom stars comprising this stellar cast. The vibrantly charismatic ‘Humble Joan’ is embodied by everyone’s favourite Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls; Bridgerton) who is accompanied on-screen by the endearing – and slightly more sane – character of Shulmay (Lolly Adefope; Ghosts; Saltburn) When national-treasure James Acaster joins the mix, you’re sure to have a film that’s full of charm and wit!

Ousted and unpopular, narcissistic Queen Dagan finds herself vulnerable: it’s the Middle Ages and there’s a bounty on her head. She embarks on an epic quest to reclaim the crown, aided by two peasant-turned-trusty-sidekicks. What follows is a barmy tale fuelled by fiery women, embellished by daring duels and sword fights galore. Brazen and bold, Seize Them! is seriously unserious and is set to be an unabashedly entertaining watch.
