The teaser of West Side Story is finally out. Check out the teaser below:
Initially, West Side Story was scheduled to release in the U.S on 18 December 2020 by 20th Century Studios. But due to covid-19 pandemic, Disney postponed the release of the movie. And now finally, the movie is going to release on 10 December, 2021.
For Spielberg, “West Side Story” is an ardor assignment. For the duration of a March 2020 interview with arrogance and honesty, the director said Bernstein’s tunes and Sondheim’s lyrics left an influential mark on him as a younger boy.
“I grew up surrounded with the aid of classical track. ‘West facet story’ changed into definitely the primary piece of famous tune our own family ever allowed into the house. I absconded with it. This was the cast album from the 1957 Broadway musical-and just fell absolutely in love with it as a kid,” he said.
Spielberg brought, “‘West facet story’ has been that one haunting temptation that i’ve sooner or later given in to.”
