Singer Demi Lovato is well known for starring in the 2008 Disney Channel movie Camp Rock, performing the track “This Is Me.” Lovato’s other screen credits include Smurfs: The Lost Village and Princess Protection Program and up next she is set to star in Will Ferrell’s Netflix comedy film Eurovision. This film will be her first live-action movie appearance since Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam in 2010.
Eurovision takes inspiration from the real singing contest, centering on Lars and Sigrit’s journey as they are given the once-in-a-lifetime chance to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition, and prove that any dream worth having is one worth fighting for.
Netflix announced on Tuesday that Lovato will play Katiana, one of the best and most angelic singers in all of Iceland. She’ll be joining Ferrell and Rachel McAdams, who will star as the aspiring Icelandic musicians Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir. Legion star Dan Stevens was also added to the film as Alexander Lemtov, a Russian contestant in Eurovision. Also starring is Pierce Brosnan, who will play Erick Erickssong, Lars’ father and the most handsome man in Iceland.
Yesterday, Ferrell gave a birthday video shoutout to Lovato, who just turned 27, also confirming the news.
