Warrior Nun Areala is a ’90s comic book series created by Ben Dunn and published by Antarctic Press. It featured a military order of Warrior Nuns and Magic Priests fighting for the Catholic Church against dark forces. Netflix announced back in late 2018 that it was working on adapting the comic as a live-action series titled Warrior Nun.

The streaming service has finally released the first trailer for the sci-fi, period, fantasy and young adult fiction. Additionally, key art and first-look photos have also been released featuring Alba Baptista as the Warrior Nun.

The trailer reveals that the live-action series does have a different style for the character designs compared to the comic book. However, the tone is still very tongue-in-cheek.

The first-look photos are available below:
