'The Color Purple' Movie Musical - Full Cast Revealed by Oprah Winfrey!

The casting for the highly anticipated The Color Purple movie musical has finally been announced!

After months and months of speculation, Oprah Winfrey confirmed that Fantasia Barrino will be playing the role of Celie and Danielle Brooks will portray Sofia. Both of the actresses previously performed those roles in the Broadway musical.

“There is a rawness and a vulnerability to Fantasia. We all know she can sing, and she has to take on the song ‘I’m Here,’ which is the anthem for women’s empowerment,” Oprah told Vanity Fair. “I think there’s no better time than this moment for it. It is an international battle cry for triumphing over adversity and empowering oneself and finding home within one’s self and one’s family. I think we’re gonna see a side of Fantasia that no one ever imagined.”

The movie starts shooting in Georgia in March and Oprah has also confirmed the rest of the cast as well.
