Kristen Stewart will play Princess Diana in a new movie that royal fans shared.
The 30-year-old Twilight star looks unrecognizable in a first-look picture released today.
What does Kristen Stewart look like as Diana?
The film called Spencer will be released in 2022.
It will focus on a weekend in the life of Princess Diana as she spends the Christmas holidays with the Royal Family in Sandringham.
Significantly, this weekend she decides to end her marriage to Prince Charles.

It was written by Steven Knight, the creator of Peaky Blinders, and it also stars Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris.
A spokesman said, “It’s an independently produced film … about a legendary woman’s declaration of independence.
“We couldn’t be more excited!”
Outwardly, I’ve never turned down Kristin Stewart, but casting her as Princess Diana seems like an “eh” decision.
