Miss Fisher Movie Plot
According to if, here is the official synopsis:
“The plot sees the heroine set off from 1920s Melbourne on adventures involving murder, mystery and mayhem from London to British Palestine. After freeing Shirin Abbas, a young Bedouin girl (Australian newcomer Izabella Yena) from her unjust imprisonment in Jerusalem, Miss Fisher begins to unravel a decade-old mystery concerning priceless emeralds, ancient curses and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin’s forgotten tribe.”

Miss Fisher Movie Release Date
As the movie only recently wrapped production, we’re still waiting on an official release date, though presumably, it will come out in 2019.
Roadshow will distribute the film. Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears was financed by Screen Australia in association with All3Media international, Film Victoria, Fulcrum Media Finance and Film Finances Australasia.
In the mean time, you can check out the Miss Fisher spin-off, Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries.
Miss Fisher Movie Trilogy
According to a previous Australia’s Herald Sun, Miss Fisher creators Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger have plans for a movie trilogy a la Indiana Jones starring beloved Phryne Fisher. However, the Kickstarter page for the movie calls it a “stand-alone theatrical release.” Presumably, if the movie did well, more movies would be greenlit.
It’s hard to tell how many people would go see a Miss Fishr movie, but there are a lot of Miss Fisher fans out there. Last year, CEO Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told The Sydney Morning Herald that he has friends “constantly asking” when Netflix will get another season of Miss Fisher.
