THE GREAT Official Featurette “Bringing the Wild, Decadent World of ‘The Great’ To Life” (HD)

THE GREAT – 2020 – COMEDY – ELLA FANNING, NICHOLAS HOULT

An unassuming building in the heart of East London is transformed into an imaginative interpretation of 18th century Russia for this wildly satirical, history-bending new series. From the lavish ballrooms to the gold-leaf candelabras, creator and writer Tony McNamara and production designer Francesca Di Mottola describe the intricacies of creating the “unpolished, realistic, decadent” kingdom of Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult) that a young Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning) walks into as she is married off to the tempestuous ruler. Costume designer Emma Fryer discusses charting Catherine’s arc through her clothing, and bringing a contemporary aesthetic to period costumery with modern fabrics. Explore the details that bring the colorful, seductive and dangerous world of Peter and Catherine’s story to life.
