Dear Evan Hansen is getting a movie adaptation, and if you've ever had a chance to see the show on the West End or on Broadway, you'll know how big of a deal that is. The film, which features a star studded cast including Pitch Perfect's Ben Platt in the lead role, is set for release this year and finally, we have a full-length trailer.
Here's everything we know about the much-anticipated Dear Evan Hansen movie adaptation.
What's Dear Evan Hansen about?
Like the show, the film is a heart-wrenching exploration of loss, grief and loneliness, following a high school kid who suffers with social anxiety and at the request of his therapist starts writing letters to himself. After one of Evan's letters is mistaken for a suicide note for one of his classmates, Evan gets caught up in a lie that gets out of hand.
Who has been cast in Dear Evan Hansen?
I mean, who hasn't? The cast list is pretty impressive. First up Ben Platt, who played the Evan Hansen when the show was first on Broadway back in 2015, will be reprising the lead role.
Alongside him, Julianne Moore stars as Evan's mother Heidi Hansen, with Kaitlyn Dever (Unbelievable) as Zoe Murphy, Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give) as Alana Beck and Amy Adams (Enchanted) as Cynthia Murphy.
When is Dear Evan Hansen being released?
Dear Evan Hansen is set to be released in UK cinemas on 22nd October 2021.
