Naomi Watts stars as Diana in the first trailer released online today. Footage of the actress portraying ‘The People’s Princess’ shows a striking resemblance in scenes some may find highly emotional.

Diana Film Trailer Released

The biopic, set to be released in the UK September 20 2013, will focus on the last two years of Princess Diana’s life, a time that uniquely defined her.

It will focus heavily on her love affair with Dr Hasnat Khan, played by Lost’s Naveen Andrews, moving on to her high-profile relationship with Dodi Al Fayed, with whom she was travelling when she died in a Paris car crash in August 1997.

The film is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, the German director who is best known for the acclaimed 2004 film Downfall, portraying Adolf Hitler’s last days.

The Oscar-nominated actress looks every inch the late Princess of Wales, from the signature hairstyle to the near-perfect outfit replications. Quite chilling to watch.

When asked about the effect the film may have on Princes William and Harry, Watts told News.com.au in an interview:
‘We’re not trying to destroy any memory. We’re trying to show her in the best possible light as a human being, though, full of different layers. It’s a story that should be told. A piece of history. But it’s tricky because they are here, the boys. I think about that a lot.’
