Broadway fans, get excited! Dear Evan Hansen is officially being made into a movie! Coming to theatres on September 24, 2021, and it’s ready to make us shed all the tears! Formally released by Universal Pictures on May 18, the trailer is the first look at the movie adaptation we’ve gotten.
Songs Off The Broadway Recording
The trailer features a track from the album called ‘You Will Be Found,’ which is a tear-jerker in itself. This alone can give us hope that more songs from the musical will end up in the movie as well. We can’t wait to see how Dear Evan Hansen will be told through different tracks off the album! Also, there’s no doubt that we’re going to need to see a duet on screen for ‘Only Us.’ I mean, those harmonies! Are you kidding?
Ben Platt, the original actor who played the role of Evan Hansen in the original broadway cast, is also carrying on his legacy in this movie adaptation. Being the one who also recorded as the voice of Evan Hansen in the Broadway album, we can only get more excited for his performance in the film!
Popular names have also joined the cast for the movie. Amy Adams, Amandla Stenberg, and Kaitlyn Dever are only a couple of the talented people that are in the cast!
Get The Tissues!
Following the original storyline of the broadway musical itself, the Dear Evan Hansen trailer doesn’t shy away from exposing the emotional side of the story. Just saying, if the trailer alone can make us cry, just think about how the whole movie will!
We highly recommend a full listen-through of the album. The musical tells a beautiful story that is so touching. The whole album tells the narrative so well, but make sure to keep tissues near!
