Ever since the first photo of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana dropped, we've been anxiously awaiting the Spencer trailer, the Princess Diana biopic directed by Pablo Larraín. A teaser trailer briefly showed off Kristen's British accent, but now the full trailer has arrived — and Kristen looks so much like the late princess, it's almost surreal.

The movie takes place over a few days during Christmas at Sandringham, one of the royal family's estates, as Diana's marriage to Prince Charles is crumbling and she's considering leaving the royal family. The Spencer trailer opens with the queen pulling up, corgis in tow, and asking where Diana is; she's late, and we see Kristen-as-Diana driving in a convertible towards the palatial estate, looking stressed in a plaid blazer.

Throughout the trailer, which is again set to a choir singing Lou Reed's '70s classic "Perfect Day," we see Diana grappling with her emotions, even getting angry at Charles for a brief moment. Princes William and Harry appear as children, asking their mother why she's so sad. "Here, in this house, there's no future," Diana explains to her children. "The past and the present are the same thing."

While the film only covers three days in her life, they're tumultuous ones. Diana is grappling with her life in the spotlight, facing the end of her marriage and the many rumors that have surrounded it, and dealing with the royal family and its many rules. "There has to be two of you," Prince Charles says to his wife. "The real one, and the one they take pictures of." The trailer shows the two sides of the princess: the one in jeans playing with her children outside, and the one in fancy gowns and tiaras at formal events, and is very clear that Diana is struggling to find herself between the two. "There's no hope for me," she says. "Not with them."

The movie appears to have a few flashback scene interspersed with the '90s time frame; at one point, we see Diana in the iconic white puffed-sleeve wedding gown, and a few of her outfits look like ones Di was seen in in the '80s. While it's not clear how the time jumps will be handled, Spencer alludes to more than its fair share of drama. "Will they kill me, do you think?" Diana asks at the end of the trailer.

Kristen totally disappears into the role of Diana; not only is she sporting Diana's signature short blonde hair, but she's nailed the accent too. We can't wait to see her take on Spencer when it premieres on November 5.
