Young Royals lead Edvin Ryding’s new Netflix film A Part Of You has finally got a release date.

The streamer has announced that the film, which will feature the acting debut of fellow Scandinavian talent Zara Larsson, premieres on 31 May.

The new film, written by Michaela Hamilton and directed by Sigge Eklund, is described as a coming-of-age drama.

Alongside Ryding and Larsson the cast includes Alva Bratt, Emil Hedayat, Felicia Maxime, Ida Engvoll, Maxwell Cunningham, Mustafa Al-Mashhadani, Nikki Hanselblad and Olivia Essén.

The official synopsis reads: “Agnes’ (Maxime) older sister Julia (Larsson) possesses everything that Agnes dreams of: she’s the coolest person in school, the center of every party, and she’s dating Noel (Ryding).

“If only Agnes could be more like her. When the worst possible thing occurs, Agnes’ world is turned upside down and she’s forced to reinvent herself. Suddenly, she’s on the verge of obtaining everything she’s ever desired, but at what cost?”

Ryding previously teased the project on his social accounts as he wrote: “AHHH Can’t wait for you to experience this one. A Part Of You. beautiful people telling a beautiful story.”

Maxime and Ryding are no strangers to working together, having collaborated together on Young Royals and The Abyss together.

Young Royals recently premiered its third and final season, with the series finale airing 18 March.

The end of Young Royals was confirmed in December 2022. Lisa Ambjörn, head writer and co-creator, said that she’s “always imagined” that the series would be told in “three parts”.

Ryding also told GAY TIMES that the end of the series is “bittersweet”: “Part of me feels very sentimental over the fact that we’re actually saying goodbye.

“Shooting the last scenes were very tearful and emotional. But, on the other hand, it’s such a privilege to know this is the last season and we’re leaving these characters, individually, on a note that is filled with hope.”
