In the Heights (2020) Looks Promising
For those that don’t know, the new In the Heights movie is based on the Broadway musical of the same name by Quiara Alegría Hudes and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The new film adaption is set to be released on June 26, 2020 (United States). Watch the trailer below:
A lot of energy there, phew!
I think this movie will be great and it’s not because of the numerous Drama Desk nominations it garnered a few years ago but because of the story and the cast who were also heavily involved in the original broadway version.
In the Heights was also nominated for thirteen Tony Awards and won four, including the 2008 Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Choreography awards.
I also think a lot of viewers will pay to see it due to Nostalgia. A lot of viewers have seen the Broadway version before now and it would be great to take it home with them and experience it in cinemas as well.
I know you might have doubts about broadway adaptations these days but I have a feeling this would be great!
Are you excited about this movie? What do you think?
