Meet the Women of Hanna in a New Prime Video Exclusive

-

Amazon Prime Video has released a new video in which the women of Hanna talk about the anticipated new series. In the video below, you can watch Hanna co-stars Esmé Creed-Miles and Mireille Enos, as well as director Sarah Adina Smith, talk about the characters and why the original film makes for a perfect TV series adaptation. The full season will be available on Prime Video March 29.

Raised in total seclusion in the remote woods of Eastern Europe, 15-year-old Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles) has spent her entire young life training to fight those who hunt her and her mercenary father, Erik Heller (Joel Kinnaman). Her survivalist skills are finally tested when she and Erik are separated upon their discovery by a rogue CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) and her team of agents.

Hanna has no choice but to embark on a perilous journey alone across Europe as she seeks to reunite with her father and evade – and ultimately take down – the dangerous agents who target them. Hanna’s isolated upbringing leads her to face particularly daunting physical and emotional challenges along the way, as she navigates an ever-deepening conspiracy – one that could be the undoing of both her and her father.

Based on Joe Wright’s acclaimed 2011 film, Hanna’s eight episode first season was written by David Farr (The Night Manager), who co-wrote the original feature. It was produced by NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television and Amazon Studios. Director Sarah Adina Smith (Legion, Room 104) helmed episodes one and two of the series, which filmed entirely on-location in Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Morocco, Spain and the U.K.

While building on the driving action-conspiracy narrative of his feature script, Farr has also reimagined Hanna’s world for the small-screen with compelling intimacy. Having a wider, longer scope in which to tell her story, Farr has woven a compelling coming-of-age story about a young woman learning about – and experiencing – for the first time what it is to be female in the modern world. Her strength and power as a trained fighter doesn’t preclude her from navigating the awkwardness of her burgeoning sexuality, changes in her body, relationships and other challenges that remind the audience that, underneath Hanna’s grit, is a young woman who ultimately yearns to feel normal.

In her breakout role for television, British actress Esmé Creed-Miles stars as Hanna alongside Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon, Suicide Squad, RoboCop) and Mireille Enos (The Catch, Amazon Prime Video’s Good Omens), who reunite on-screen after co-starring in AMC’s Emmy-nominated crime drama The Killing.
