A new featurette for The Color Purple has arrived. On Sept. 17, Warner Bros. decided to give film enthusiasts a fresh glimpse of their upcoming musical drama movie. The Color Purple takes heavy inspiration from Steven Spielberg‘s classic 1985 movie and the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1982 novel by Alice Walker.
The featurette finds Oprah Winfrey, Halle Bailey, Ciara, and Taraji P. Henson, to name a few, alluding to what can be seen in the soon-to-come film.
The Color Purple stars Taraji P. Henson as Shrug Avery, Danielle Brooks as Sofia, Colman Domingo as Mister, Corey Hawkins as Harpo, H.E.R. as Squeak, Halle Bailey as young Nettie, Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor as Mama, Louis Gossett Jr. as Mister Johnson, David Alan Grier as Rev. Samuel, Deon Cole as Alfonso, Tamela J. Mann as First Lady, Jon Batiste as Grady, Stephen Hill as Buster, Elizabeth Marvel as Miss Millie, and Fantasia Barrino as Celie.
The movie premieres in theaters on December 25.
