Sia released the music video for her version of “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile” for the upcoming reboot of Annie.
Sia's 'You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile'
Sia’s version of “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile” brings the song from 1982 into the modern day to fit into the 2014 film’s updated take on the story about the relationship between an orphan and a wealthy businessman with political aspirations. In the video, Quvenzhané Wallis, who plays Annie in the reboot, gallivants about the city with a horde of other children, holding up signs encouraging the city to smile.
In addition to “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” Sia is featured on two other tracks on the Annie soundtrack – “Opportunity “ and “Moonquake Lake” with Beck.
Will Gluck, who co-wrote the screenplay with Aline Brosh McKenna, directed the updated version of Annie, set in modern day New York City. Jamie Foxx plays the equivalent of Daddy Warbucks – Will Stacks – while Cameron Diaz is the cantankerous Hannigan. Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje and David Zayas are also among the cast.
Annie hits theater Dec. 19.
