Netflix Debuts Star-Studded Trailer for Ryan Murphy's 'The Prom' - Watch!

The Prom is coming!

The upcoming Ryan Murphy movie, which is heading to Netflix, debuted a trailer on Thursday (November 26).

The movie stars Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, Jo Ellen Pellman, Ariana Debose, Tracey Ullman, Kevin Chamberlin, Mary Kay Place, Nico Greetham, Logan Riley, Nathaniel J. Potvin, Sofia Deler and Kerry Washington.

Here’s a plot summary: Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Key), the head of the PTA (Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (DeBose). When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Kidman) and Trent (Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

The Prom is the film adaptation of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical, and hits select theaters in December and on Netflix on December 11.

Meryl Streep also raps in the movie!

Meet Ariana DeBose, The 'Hamilton' Ensemble Member Who Is About to Have a Huge Year! (Exclusive Interview)

Ariana DeBose is a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of throughout the rest of the year!

The 29-year-old actress was featured in the ensemble of Hamilton‘s original Broadway cast and her performance can be seen in the new movie that was just released on Disney+.

After leaving the cast of Hamilton, Ariana earned a Tony nomination for her performance in Summer: The Donna Summer Musical. She is also starring in two more movie musicals being released this year.

Ariana will be playing the iconic role of Anita in Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story, scheduled for release on December 18. She also is starring in Ryan Murphy‘s adaptation of the Broadway musical The Prom, which is expected to be released on Netflix this year.

Yep, Ariana is in all three of 2020′s biggest movie musicals! We caught up with her to learn more about her Hamilton memories, her hopes for change on Broadway, and her exciting future.

JJ: What’s your favorite memory of your time in “Hamilton”?

AD: WHOOO! Honestly, I have so many mind boggling memories that I don’t know that I could choose just one favorite. Performing the show for the Obamas, realizing I was staring at Meryl Streep in the audience, getting to meet so many humans I respect; but I will say that year’s Tonys was pretty spectacular! That was a night I’ll never forget- once in a lifetime energy right there!

JJ: Do you have plans to return to Broadway in the future? What are some changes you’d like to see when Broadway comes back in 2021?

AD: At this time I don’t have plans to return to Broadway in the future…TBH at this time I don’t have any plans. Period, lol. I’m very hopeful that the potential return of Broadway in 2021 will be the beginnings of a more inclusive and equitable work force on all sides of the industry. While that sounds like a lofty goal, one specific thing I’m hoping to see more of are creative teams made up of BIPOC’s bringing to life stories about BIPOC’s… Oh and I’m really hoping we create better deep cleaning protocols because those theaters are beautifully old.
