Only one week is left until The White Queen is released on Blu-ray and DVD. To celebrate, Anchor Bay Entertainment have released a brand new trailer for the BBC 10 part series, The White Queen. Go and have a look below!
The White Queen is based on the novel, The Cousins’ War by Phillipa Gregory.
The TV show is set in 1464 during the War of Roses and its portrayal of this very turbulent period of England’s history is gripping. The story is told in a very unique way, through the perspectives of three different women; Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. The war that has been raging on throughout England over who is the rightful King leads to a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family; The House of York and The House of Lancaster.
The young and handsome Edward IV from The House of Lancaster is crowned the King of England through the help of Lord Warwick ‘The Kingmaker’. However, Edward falls in love with Elizabeth Woodville, a Lancastrian commoner. This leads to the war over the throne.
The cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, Amanda Hale, Aneurin Barnard, Faye Marsay and Max Irons.
The DVD will be coming out on 19th August!
