Posted December 21st, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Universal has released a new trailer for the upcoming adventure comedy Your Highness. The movie stars Danny McBride, Natalie Portman, James Franco, and Zooey Deschanel and is directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express). The script was written by McBride and Ben Best, with the two previously having worked together on Eastbound & Down and The Foot Fist Way. The story focuses on a Prince and his lazy brother who go on a journey to find his kidnapped bride. Your Highness is slated to release on April 8th 2011.

Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he’s settled for a life of wizard’s weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious’ bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off.

Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to trek across the perilous outlands and free the princess. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman)—an elusive warrior with a dangerous agenda of her own—the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna. If Thadeous can find his inner hero, he can help his brother prevent the destruction of his land. Stay a slacker, and not only does he die a coward, he gets front row seats to the dawn of an all-new Dark Ages.
