The Color Purple Trailer

"All I had was my sister… She was the only one ever loved me." WB has revealed the first official trailer for The Color Purple, a new adaptation of the beloved, triumphant musical of the same name. Back in 1985, Steven Spielberg directed a non-musical version of this story (also called The Color Purple) which became a Broadway musical that first opened in 2005. He's producing this new version, too. This new updated take is also based on the musical, bringing it to theaters once again on Christmas Day at the end of 2023. It's a story of the life-long struggles of an African American woman living in the south during the early 1900s - focusing on two sisters and their lives. The Color Purple stars Taraji P. Henson, Danielle Brooks, Colman Domingo, Corey Hawkins, H.E.R., Halle Bailey, Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, plus Fantasia Barrino (in her major motion picture debut). Well, I must say this looks absolutely magical and stunning and extravagant! It should be a very good experience at the movies when this opens on Christmas this year.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Blitz Bazawule's The Color Purple, direct from YouTube:
