FutureStarrBreaking Down 'The Color Purple' Trailer
Themes in stories can be manifested through character actions, setting details, dialogue or symbols like those seen in Lord of the Rings. Fantasia Barrino and Halle Bailey (currently garnering praise for her performance as Ariel in The Little Mermaid) star as sisters Celie and Nettie in this 2023 adaptation directed by Blitz Bazawule and produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Quincy Jones, and Scott Sanders. 1. Theme of Love On Wednesday, Blitz Bazawule unveiled the trailer for his 2023 adaptation of Alice Walker's groundbreaking novel The Color Purple. R&B star Fantasia Barrino from Broadway's 2007-2008 production plays Celie, while Taraji P. Henson stars as Shug. Colman Domingo, Corey Hawkins, Halle Bailey Danielle Brooks Elizabeth Marvel Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor H.E.R Quincy Jones and Steven Spielberg will serve as producers bringing full circle since their original 1985 film adaptation starring Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg! The new movie looks set to become an awards season contender, with viewers already anticipating its arrival. Oscar nominated original film received 10 nominations so it is understandable why so many are looking forward to its debut. Plus its all-star cast makes an appealing combination. It's evident that this new film will be an emotionally powerful and moving drama about love and redemption. The trailer shows Celie's emotional journey as she experiences domestic abuse from Mister and seeks strength through relationships with jazz singer Shug Avery, her daughter Nettie and Sofia (her husband's mistress). All these relationships help Celie gain strength to persevere against him. Celie finds love and support through the sisterhood she forms with these women despite being separated from her daughter, which resonates with modern audiences who are looking for ways to heal from past traumas and find meaning in their lives. Furthermore, The Color Purple could serve as an impactful family viewing experience: parents could discuss how some scenes made audiences uncomfortable as well as discuss ways they could all work together towards helping each other overcome traumatic experiences. 2. Theme of Family Monday saw the debut of the movie musical adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Color Purple hit the web. Steven Spielberg produced and starred in its 1985 adaptation as well as stage musical. Oprah Winfrey produced and starred in both versions, while Fantasia Barrino from American Idol was featured as well as Taraji P Henson, Halle Bailey, Phylicia Mpasi Danielle Brooks Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor H.E.R and Louis Gossett Jr. The trailer of "Black Panther: Rise of an Empire" opens with African-American women clapping while children play, signaling that this new film will feature powerful performances. Celie turns to her sister Nettie for assistance and leads them both into playing a hand-clapping game together. Family and community will make the film so captivating. The plot follows one woman as she searches for both her sister and herself; along the way she is supported by family and new acquaintances she makes along her journey. Although both films and musical were highly acclaimed for their portrayal of Black life in America, some have expressed concerns with certain characters' depictions. Tony Brown labeled the original as a racist depiction of Black men since "Birth Of A Nation," while novelist Ishmael Reed described them as exotic savage creatures. But the new movie could change those negative opinions; its talented cast will no doubt draw audiences in and enchant them with its beauty. 3. Theme of Community Since its publication, The Color Purple has taken many forms since being first made famous, such as being made into a Steven Spielberg movie with Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey in 1985 and later becoming a Broadway musical. Now, its beloved novel is back on screen in an adaptation directed by Blitz Bazawule of Black Is King with an all-star cast led by American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino as Celie and Halle Bailey from The Little Mermaid fame playing Nettie. Joining them is Taraji P Henson as Shug Avery; Danielle Brooks as Sophia and Colman Domingo as Mister; alongside many other talented actors from The Little Mermaid fame among many other talented actors! The new adaptation of the story centers around Celie, an African-American woman who moves to a rural Southern town and experiences a series of tragedies that ultimately lead her towards redemption. The trailer premiered Monday (May 22), featuring powerhouse actresses singing and acting their hearts out - which they do so beautifully thanks to expert cinematography: director used "solar-cranked" cameras for creating soft lighting on characters which worked beautifully within the setting; in addition, "light fronts" created a veil of soft light which softened scenes significantly. Critics have responded positively to the trailer of Celie: A Story of Empowerment. Critics point out its timeless message of empowerment is apparent throughout time, while some viewers find its attempts at portraying internal thoughts through voice-overs melodramatic. The movie opens in theaters on Dec 25. In an interview with ET last year, Fantasia admitted she almost declined playing Celie due to having recently endured such a challenging journey on Broadway; but producer Scott Sanders persuaded her otherwise and the rest is history! 4.
