Today, Warner Bros. Pictures released the trailer to The Color Purple. This bold new take on the beloved classic is directed by Blitz Bazawule, and is produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Scott Sanders and Quincy Jones.

Henson, SAG Award winner and Tony Award nominee Danielle Brooks, Tony nominee and Emmy Award winner Colman Domingo, Tony Award nominee Corey Hawkins, Oscar and Grammy-winning artist H.E.R., Grammy nominee Halle Bailey, and Oscar nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor.
