Warner Bros. Pictures has released a third and final trailer for their new adaptation of “The Color Purple,” the clip already touting the movie’s Golden Globe nominations just hours after they were announced.

The project is based on the 2005 Tony-winning stage musical version of Alice Walker’s 1982 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The novel tells the story of the struggles of a Black southern woman over four decades during the early 1900s.

Nettie (Halle Bailey) and Celie (Phylicia Mpasi) are two young sisters who find themselves constantly dreaming about having a new life, one outside the daily discrimination and injustice they face, which allows them to go after what they want and feel like they belong.

The book was previously directly adapted to the screen as a straight dramatic film in 1985 by Steven Spielberg, who returns as producer here alongside Quincy Jones and Oprah Winfrey.

Fantasia Barrino, Danielle Brooks, Ciara, Taraji P. Henson, Colman Domingo, Corey Hawkins, H.E.R., Louis Gossett Jr., and David Alan Grier also star.

Blitz Bazawule (“Beyonce: Black is King”) directs from a script by Marcus Gardley. “The Color Purple” opens exclusively in cinemas on Christmas Day.
