After months of seeing snapshots of Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis hard at work on the set of Annie, fans can now see the first official trailer of the Broadway musical remake.
In the 2:30 second video released on Wednesday, Wallis (Annie) can be seen alongside Cameron Diaz, who plays the hilarious, yet snippy Miss Hannigan and Foxx who plays billionaire, Daddy Warbucks.
The trailer outlines the emotional, yet upbeat storyline of Little Orphan Annie who agrees to help with Warbucks’ New York Mayoral campaign. “The more we’re seen together, the better it is for my campaign,” Warbucks tells Annie. The orphan replies, “I bet if I moved in with you, you’d become president.”
The reboot, produced by Jay Z and Will Smith delivers a more urban flare to the popular 70’s musical. Fans can expect some of the original songs including “Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow,” but with a little more pizazz.
The film is set to premiere Christmas day.
