The planet is inhabited by fairies – creatures that for many years can not live in peace and harmony with man. While people are trying to prove their superiority over other species, the fairies have one task – to survive at all costs. How will such an unequal confrontation end and who will become the protagonist of this tragic story?
When will the series “Carnival Row Season 2” be released?
The sequel to the fantastic TV show “Carnival Row” was slated to air in August 2020. Season 2 show has been postponed to late summer 2021.
The mixture of the world of people and the world of magical creatures is a direct analogy of the situation that is currently happening abroad. Refugees are trying to protect their rights even at the cost of the lives of indigenous people.
For centuries, Tirnanoc was inhabited by mythical creatures: fairies, centaurs, fauns – all were equal in front of each other. But the fairies’ peaceful life was disrupted with the advent of people. Having sowed death on the magical land, humanity decided to make these creatures their own tame animals, which differed from a simple dog only in that they could perform more functions.
They did the dirtiest work that not a single person wanted to do. Their will was so subordinated that they themselves forgot what riches and secrets lurk in their head, but fairies have long been the heirs of great secrets. But there were those who did not want to put up with the human system, who wanted to regain freedom.
In Burgue, mythical creatures lived hand in hand with people. While the war was in full swing at Tirnanoc, some tried to take refuge in Burgue. Although the conditions were not ideal here, it was quite possible to earn money on food and shelter. But over time, the situation began to heat up.
With great difficulty, people and fairies got along in one city, while mythical creatures mercilessly oppressed. The story begins to gain momentum when detective Rycroft Philostrate investigates the death of a dancer who, during her lifetime, belonged to the fairies. Philo suspects her lover, but everything turns out to be much deeper than it seems.
A maniac appeared on the streets of the city, who decides to kill all the fairies. Or maybe not only them? But since the direct law does not allow this, it is necessary to act stealthily. Since Philostrate is bound by love bonds with one of the fairies, who has long considered him dead, he decides to take their side and protect their interests in front of people.
At this time, people and fairies go into open conflict, which is gaining momentum. Can Filo find the main killer? Will he return his beloved? We will find out about this in season 2 of the series!
Actors and their roles
- Rycroft Philostrate – an orphan from The Burgue, loves his homeland and considers it a duty to serve in the war to protect his people; eventually falls in love with the fairy Vignette, but the romance is short-lived; now he wants to support the interests of the fairies – Orlando Bloom.
- Vignette Stonemoss – a native of Tirnanoc, does not consider people to be a special kind, because she is confident in the superiority of fairies, but in fact sees that everything is quite the opposite; Vignette has wings behind him, in love with Rycroft, considers him dead – Cara Delevingne.
- In 2005, the first script appeared, which ended up on the “black list” – a list with the best stories that have not been made into films. Only in 2015, the Amazon channel decided to pull the script out of the “black list” and adapt it to the multi-part picture.
- Guillermo del Toro was initially approved for the post of director, but in the end, his permanent employment in other projects bothered the creators. Guillermo was fired, and in his place took several professionals at once, including Jon Amiel, known for his paintings “Outsiders”, “Marco Polo”, as well as “Wisdom of the Crowd”.
- Initially, bets were made on recognizable actors. Since the days of “The Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean”, the glory of Orlando Bloom has not abated, and the increased love of viewers for multi-part films makes Orlando work more and more every year. It is worth noting that in this case, the actor never appears in the same role.
- Since 2012, Cara Delevingne is famous not only for her acting and modeling career, but also for her sexual preferences. The girl openly reports that women and men are equal for her, but more often she meets women. Among her partners was “The Fast and the Furious” star Michelle Rodriguez and the daughter of Michael Jackson – Paris.
- To shoot the series, the creators need a couple of months, and in order to overlay the animation, it takes more than six months. Considering that Cara and Orlando get the majority of takes from the first try, the shooting process takes much less time than less professional actors who play secondary roles.
