The highly anticipated trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of ‘The Color Purple’ has been unwrapped.
Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, which itself was an adaptation of Alice Walker’s 1982 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the latest incarnation of the story is a musical movie led by Fantasia.
With a December 25 US theatrical release set, for the Blitz Bazawule production, Warner Bros has unlocked the first look at the eagerly awaited film – which tells the tale of sisters with an unshakeable bond.
What are you waiting for? Check out the official trailer for ‘The Color Purple’ below…
‘The Color Purple’ first arrived on the big screen with its 1985 film, which was anchored by Whoopi Goldberg in the role of Celie (which Fantasia now takes on). Oprah Winfrey wowed in the role of Sofia and Steven Spielberg was its director. Later, the story was gifted life anew during its reinvention as a Tony Award-winning Broadway production.
Beyond its US release, ‘The Color Purple’ hits theaters internationally beginning January 18 2024.
Wow! This looks incredible & and Fantasia’s voice is so stirring! She’s going to get that damn Oscar.
The 🐝 is 💩ing
Halle is 💩ing
Chloe must be CONSTIPATED because In CRUMBS only did 10k and ‘FLOP This’ was a FLOP on arrival but atleast poor thing stays BOOKED 😆 🤣 😂
I’m glad to see Fantasia in her rightful place. She played Miss Celie on Broadway but drama unfortunately got her caught up and she had to quit. Looking forward to the movie looks amazing!
The movie is a whole lot more of a musical than the trailer suggests. That’s probably all I can risk saying right now.
I was a little unsure of a remake but this trailer looks interesting. If this is a true musical, this might just be interesting…I will be there Christmas Day.
Not Halle being in 2 movies in 1 year and Chloe… Crying about 10k
Fantasia and Halle in a musical together?? Definitely checking this one out.
Wow! Just amaizin
fantasia is about to de-li-ver!
This is going to be great, but I have to be skeptical. I mean, Ciara can’t sing or act, why is she a part of this? Marrying Russell was very good for her “career”.
Ciara will play grown Halle character when she returns from Africa.
