Catch Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland in The First Trailer for Judy Right Here


Good Evening Lovelies, 

Get ready to sing and dance into the weekend lovelies, because the first trailer for Judy, starring Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland!

Set in the winter of 1968, the film captures Judy Garland arriving in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. 30 years on from her performance in The Wizard of Oz, her voice has changed however, leading to drama within herself and with those around her. Faced with issues from her management, she works to charm those around her whilst reuniting with fans, friends and her soon to be fifth husband Mickey Deans. Yet after working in the industry for 45 years out of her 47, she s tired and fragile from the childhood memories that haunt her. Plus, her desire to be back home with her children.

Speaking about the film, director Rupert Goold, said, “I had always wanted to make a film that explores great performance and its cost. The most fertile ground for such exploration seemed to be at the end of a lifetime of performance.  For over 40 years Judy Garland had laughed and loved and entertained no matter what life threw at her, and her public adored her for it.  But she paid a price in a childhood lost to Hollywood, an emotional exhaustion and a yearning for a “normal” life beyond the rainbow.  It is a powerful and moving story that I hope will inspire new audiences to discover Judy Garland’s joyous legacy.

I felt Renee was uniquely qualified to play Judy.  First, because she is a great, Oscar-winning dramatic actress.  Second, she is a wonderful comedienne.  And third, I knew from Chicago that she could sing.  I made it clear to Renee that I wasn’t looking for an impersonation of Judy Garland’s inimitable voice, but what I wanted was for Renee to make the songs her own and this she did to thrilling effect.”

Check out the new trailer for the film due out on the 4th October 2019 below:
