The first teaser trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel's "Diana," starring Naomi Watts as Princess Diana, has landed. The film follows the last two years of Diana's life, charting her various romances and her evolution into a major international campaigner and humanitarian. Entertainment One has picked up the distribution rights, and plans an Oscar season release later this year. Watch below.

The cast also includes Naveen Andrews ("Lost") as heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan and Charles Edwards as Patrick Jephson, senior royal aide and author of 2001 tell-all "Shadows of a Princess: An Intimate Account by Her Private Secretary." The film focuses primarily on Diana's affair with Khan, which lasted from 1995 until a few months before her death in 1997. 

News of Watts starring in the film broke in February of 2012; we conducted a poll to assess people's reactions to Watts portraying the beloved icon (it was largely supportive).

German director Hirschbiegel's credits include 2004's Best Foreign-Language Oscar nominee "Downfall," 2007's "The Invasion" with Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, and 2009's "Five Minutes of Heaven" with Liam Neeson.
