The official trailer for the Dear Evan Hansen movie has finally dropped, and it shows Ben Platt reprising his iconic Broadway role as the eponymous character. Platt leads a cast that includes Julianne Moore, Kaitlyn Dever, Amy Adams, Danny Pino, Colton Ryan, Amandla Stenberg, and Nik Dodani. Dear Evan Hansen is scheduled for a theatrical release on September 24, 2021.
Dear Evan Hansen is one of the biggest musicals of the past decade, earning nine Tony Award nominations in 2017 and winning six, including Best Musical and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Platt. The story follows the titular Evan, a shy high school student struggling with loneliness, who becomes wrapped up in a massive lie after one of his classmates, Connor, dies by suicide. Desperate for a sense of belonging that he has long lacked, Evan creates a false story about being friends with Connor, becoming increasingly entangled with Connor’s family in the process.
That story is on full display in the new trailer from Universal Pictures, which shows off Platt, Moore, Dever, and the rest of the cast. There’s plenty of the show’s iconic, award-winning music as well, promising a loyal adaptation that could be just as powerful as the original. Watch the Dear Evan Hansen trailer below.
