PRINCESS KAIULANI – Official Trailer
Many of you may remember the post we did in 2008 when filming began on this controversial movie in Honolulu which used the title “Barbarian Princess” as the USA (festival title). Thanks to an update from Sheri Candler, we have learned it is scheduled to be released in select cities and theaters across the U.S. on May 14, 2010 under the title of “Princess Kaiulani.” The world premiere of this film was previously released last year at the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF).

“Princess Kaiulani stars Q’orianka Kilcher, as a turn-of-the-century princess caught up in the last days of the Hawaiian monarchy. Set in 1888, the Kingdom of Hawaii is divided by a civil war. Princess Kaiulani, the young heir to the throne, is suddenly forced to flee the home she adores and move to England where she finds an altogether different life – one where she is not considered royalty. As she grows up and adapts to her new life there, she falls in love with the rebellious but sweet-natured Clive. At the tender age of 17, she receives the devastating news that the monarchy has been overthrown and her aunt, Queen Liliuokalani, has been arrested. The young Princess must choose between her true love and the responsibility to her beloved islands and the Hawaiian people.“
