On Monday, Warner Bros. debuted the official trailer for The Color Purple and it is receiving rave reviews!
This bold new take on the beloved classic is directed by Blitz Bazawule and produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Scott Sanders, and Quincy Jones.
The Color Purple stars Taraji P. Henson as “Shug Avery,” Danielle Brooks as “Miss Sofia,” Colman Domingo as “Mister,” Corey Hawkins as “Harpo Johnson,” H.E.R. as “Squeak,” Halle Bailey as “young Nettie,” Ciara as “Nettie Harris,” Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor as “Mama,” and Fantasia Barrino (in her major motion picture debut) as “Miss Celie.”
While preparing to shoot a cover for Essence magazine, Oprah took a moment to show Taraji, Danielle, H.E.R., and Fantasia the official trailer for the very first time.
Seeing their reactions to The Color Purple trailer gave me the feels and made me even more excited about the film, which is slated to open in theaters on Christmas Day.
