Do you want another music-led biopic in your life after Bohemian Rhapsody? Of course you do.
The first trailer has arrived for Judy that sees Bridget Jones star Renee Zellweger play The Wizard of Oz‘s Judy Garland, with the biopic telling the story of her final concerts in London.
Set in 1968, Judy sees the showbiz icon arrive in London for her sell-out run at The Talk of the Town, 30 years after The Wizard of Oz.
The preparation for her shows see her battle with management, reminisce with fans and start a romance with Mickey Deans, soon-to-be her fifth husband. But Garland is exhausted and haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood.
Judy also features rising star Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell, American Horror Story‘s Finn Wittrock, Michael Gambon and Lyanna Mormont herself, Bella Ramsey, as Garland’s daughter Lorna Luft.
Based on a script by The Crown‘s Tom Edge, the biopic will feature some of Garland’s best-known songs, including ‘Over the Rainbow’, and is directed by Rupert Goold.
Before the release of Judy, Zellweger will next be seen in Netflix’s What/If where she plays the leader of a “dangerous game”, offering the players the chance to live their wildest dreams, but only if they are willing to risk it all.
The plan is for What/If to be an anthology series that tells a new story each season, centred on what it takes for acceptable people to do unacceptable things.
Judy is set for release in US cinemas on September 27 and UK cinemas on October 4.
