Prince Andrew: Banished trailer examines a royal scandal

The U.K. recently said goodbye to Queen Elizabeth II, the beloved monarch who reigned for seven decades. While Charles III is the new king of England, an upcoming Peacock original documentary is throwing the spotlight on his younger brother, Prince Andrew. And the aptly titled Prince Andrew: Banished will thoroughly explore why the royal family would probably prefer that Charles’ brother stay out of the public eye for the rest of his life.

It’s hard to believe now, but Andrew was once wildly popular among the British public. He was considered handsome, and he had genuine military experience. Prince Andrew was also married for eight years to Sarah Ferguson a.k.a. “Fergie,” a controversy magnet in her own right. However, Fergie’s scandals paled in comparison to Prince Andrew’s when his close friendship with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell came under intense scrutiny.

Epstein and Maxwell were later convicted of sex offenses, and Prince Andrew’s connection to the pair led to accusations that he was guilty of similar crimes. His attempts at damage control only deepened the scandal that still threatens the royal family to this day.

Peacock’s documentary follows the rise and fall of Prince Andrew, which is given context from exclusive interviews with “palace insiders, and journalists.” The documentary also promises to feature individuals who have first-hand knowledge about the relationship between Prince Andrew, Epstein, and Maxwell.

Jamie Crawford directed the documentary and executive produced it alongside Jennifer Harkness, Laura Michalchyshyn, Sam Sniderman, Nina Burleigh, Emma Cooper, and Barbara Shearer. Prince Andrew: Banished will premiere on Peacock on October 5.

From Mad Max to Furiosa: Every George Miller movie, ranked
Lord Humungous in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

Anya Taylor-Joy in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Warner Bros.
Australian director George Miller is one of the great cinematic visionaries of his generation. Once a medical student taking film classes on the side, Miller turned his morbid fascination with car accidents into a cult-classic action film, which in turn gave birth to one of cinema’s most exciting and intriguing worlds.
Not content to make bombastic postapocalyptic chase movies forever, Miller then tried his hand at raunchy comedy, dour adult drama, and wholesome family entertainment in both live action and animation. When he returned to his chrome-plated world of gas-guzzling road warriors, he delivered one of the greatest action films of all time.
He is a unique and thrilling visual stylist, a technological innovator, and just as importantly, a wise and thoughtful storyteller who proves that style and substance need never be mutually exclusive. But has he ever made a clunker? Your mileage may vary, but here's how we think his filmography stacks up.

10. Happy Feet Two (2011)
Like its Oscar-winning predecessor, Happy Feet Two endeavors to tell a whimsical tale about Antarctic wildlife that's packed with both familiar pop songs and ambitious existentialist and environmentalist themes. This time around, however, the style and the stakes simply don't line up, and the result is a George Miller's one and only forgettable movie.
