I love the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (yeah, made loads of videos for that too a couple of years ago here) but sadly it was discontinued after 3 seasons (what is UP with cool shows I love like this one and Anne with an E being canceled after 3 seasons?!?). A crowdfunder came which I too supported at the time and lo and behold, we have a new Miss Fisher movie coming! As one of the crowdfunders, I have received e-mail updates about the movie production while it was ongoing and now the project is finally finished and ready to show.
So far it will air in cinemas only in Australia in February 2020 but I read a while back that it will also become available on streaming services, I think also only in Australia at first. The trailer in this article is alas geoblocked, so not viewable outside Australia (unless you use a VPN which I’m not using right now), but I saw a teaser trailer for it a few months ago in my e-mail crowdfunder alerts, which is also up on Twitter:
The synopis (taken from Wikipedia) is: “After freeing a young Bedouin girl from her unjust imprisonment in Jerusalem, Phryne Fisher begins to unravel a decade-old mystery concerning priceless emeralds, ancient curses and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin’s forgotten tribe.”
This was filmed in Morocco, nowhere actually near Jerusalem, so it’ll be nice to see what they made of Jerusalem in this movie.
A few days ago there was a cast and crew screening for the movie:
And today I see a little Q&A with Nathan Page who stars as Jack Robinson on the show (scroll through the images in the Instagram post to see the Q&A):
He hints there could be two more movies after this one if this one is received well. I’m curious! I wonder when the rest of the world outside of Australia can see this. Maybe on Netflix again? Time will tell. In any case, I’m excited that it’s happened. Now all I need is a little patience to actually get to watch this myself…
