The movie’s first trailer positively appears to be like totally different from the variations of this story we have seen earlier than, because it solely briefly touches on the abuse on the story’s heart and the queer romance that was a canonical a part of Walker’s e book. Since that is solely a trailer, relaxation assured we’ll be seeing much more within the ultimate movie.
We do see a younger Celie (Mpasi) and her sister Nettie (Bailey) cross paths with Mister (Domingo), the abusive man whose violence one of many two will spend the subsequent many years attempting to flee. Mostly, although, the trailer exhibits the glitzier, film musical facet of the story, with Henson’s Shug Avery exhibiting a grown-up Celie (Barrino) one other facet of life, full with sequined clothes, feathered costumes, and glamorous old-Hollywood dance numbers.
The trailer’s most indelible second comes courtesy of Barrino, who might be heard singing a climactic track referred to as “I’m Here” which options prominently within the Broadway present. The musician and actress’ voice is simply as gorgeous and emotive because it was when she received “American Idol” at age 19, and when she earned a Grammy for her third album in 2011. Believe it or not, “The Color Purple” marks Barrino’s first main movie look, and from what we have seen, it’ll be a showstopper.
“The Color Purple” hits theaters on December 25, 2023.
