Watch how director Steven Spielberg brings the beloved ‘West Side Story’ tale to life in this sneak peek.
Spielberg’s highly-anticipated remake of West Side Story is due to be released in cinemas on Boxing Day, 2021.
Ansel Elgort (Tony) and Rachel Zegler (Maria) play the star-crossed lovers in this classic tale of rivalry and love in 1950s New York City. The film also stars Rita Morena, who played Maria in the original 1961 West Side Story film. Moreno, who also serves as an executive producer in Spielberg’s West Side Story, plays Valentina, the owner of the corner store where Tony works.
In the new sneak peek, we get a glimpse of Spielberg behind the camera in the making of the movie.
“I’m just so proud and honoured that I got this shot late in my career of being able to tell this story, based on the 1957 Broadway musical,” says Spielberg.
West Side Story is released in cinemas on 26 December, 2021.
