The Steven Spielberg-directed West Side Story remake has released the first looks from the movie.

This first image showed Broadway star Ariana DeBose in costume for her role of Anita, standing next to a fire escape, bringing back the iconography of the original West Side Story musical. This film is set to hit theaters on December 18, 2020.


Rita Moreno, who played the original Anita in the 1961 film, will be joining the remake. She will act as an executive producer and play Valentina in the film.

Tony Award-winning composer, Jeanine Tesori, will help the stars of this new film with their vocals, while Academy Award-nominated composer, David Newman, will be in charge of scoring the film.

This film features Ansel Elgort in the role of Tony, Rachel Zegler as Maria and Corey Stoll as Lieutenant Schrank.

DeBose also shared this first look of her character on her personal Instagram this week.

DeBose is known for her roles in the Broadway shows Hamilton and A Bronx Tale.
