"It’s gonna be like something you haven’t seen before," Brendan said about the part, and it definitely rings true.

"That’s really all I can tell you," he said about the film. "The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome. This is certainly far removed from anything I’ve ever done."

"I literally cannot wait to see this!!!" one fan on Instagram shared. "It's Brenaissance time!"
