Will Eurovision be politically correct?

Where would the fun in that be? We’re expecting to see plenty of caricatures and stereotypes of the different European nations. It is a Will Ferrell film after all so anything other would definitely subvert expectation.

What is the production status of Eurovision?

Production Status: Post-Production (Last Updated: 13/02/2020)

Filming took place between May and September 2019. For reference material from the Eurovision Song Contest, some filming took place throughout the competition.

At the time of this update, the project is currently deep into post-production.
