First Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story Has Arrived

During the 93rd Academy Awards telecast, Disney dropped the first teaser for the upcoming West Side Story remake from Spielberg.

If you missed the Oscars last night, you also missed out on the first trailer for the new West Side Story, offering a glimpse at the cinematic musical coming later this year:

Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® winner Tony Kushner, “West Side Story” tells the classic tale of fierce rivalries and young love in 1957 New York City. This reimagining of the beloved musical stars Ansel Elgort (Tony); Rachel Zegler (María); Ariana DeBose (Anita); David Alvarez (Bernardo); Mike Faist (Riff); Josh Andrés Rivera (Chino); Ana Isabelle (Rosalía); Corey Stoll (Lieutenant Schrank); Brian d’Arcy James (Officer Krupke); and Rita Moreno (as Valentina, who owns the corner store in which Tony works). Moreno – one of only three artists to be honored with Academy®, Emmy®, GRAMMY®, Tony® and Peabody Awards – also serves as one of the film’s executive producers.

West Side Story hits theaters on December 10, 2021.
