Here’s the first trailer for the upcoming movie of huge musical hit Dear Evan Hansen.

The last time Universal bet big on a film adaptation of a hit Broadway and West End musical, we got Cats. I’m wagering it’s a little more confident with what it’s got next.

The multi-award winning musical Dear Evan Hansen is getting the big screen treatment, and the latest trailer for the film has landed. The movie is heading to UK cinema screens in October, with Wonder’s Stephen Chbosky directing. Steven Levenson has adapted his stage book for the screen, and the songs are again from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Here’s the new trailer…

And here’s the original trailer from back in May…

Casting wise? We get Ben Platt, Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Kaitlyn Dever, Amandla Stenberg, Nik Dodani, Danny Pino, Colton Ryan and DeMarius Copes. And here’s the first trailer and synopsis…

The breathtaking, generation-defining Broadway phenomenon becomes a soaring cinematic event as Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Ben Platt reprises his role as an anxious, isolated high schooler aching for understanding and belonging amid the chaos and cruelty of the social-media age. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Wonder), the film is written for the screen by the show’s Tony winner Steven Levenson with music and lyrics by the show’s Oscar®, Grammy and Tony-winning songwriting team of Benj Pasek & Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman).

More as we hear it.
