“I just knew this was the [musical] I wanted to jump back in to and be a part of” comments Zac Efron on his upcoming role in The Greatest Showman in one of two brand new featurettes released today by Twentieth Century Fox. Zendaya echoes her co-star’s enthusiasm, commenting her work on the film “literally plays to everything I love”.
Focussing on the star-crossed lovers they play, the pair of featurettes not only showcases brand new footage but also their infectious duet ‘Rewrite The Stars’, which is now available on all digital music platforms and will be delivered as an ‘instant grat’ track with all pre-orders of the motion picture soundtrack.
The Greatest Showman is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, “The Greatest Showman” tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. “The Greatest Showman” is directed by exciting new filmmaker, Michael Gracey, with songs by Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“La La Land”) and starring Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman. Jackman is joined by Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson.
Showcasing a stunning score from Academy & Tony Award-winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen), The Greatest Showman stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya, and arrives in UK cinemas on 26th December.
