Inspired by the story of P.T Barnum, The Greatest Showman will chronicle the birth of one of the world’s most famous live-action events, the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Barnum, played by Hugh Jackman, begins his career as an unhappy accountant until he’s unexpectedly laid off from his job. He conjures up an idea to bring eye-popping spectacles to the public — then suddenly a phenomenon is born. As a part of the misfit circus cast we see Zac Efron and Zendaya, who plays a bendy trapeze artist.
The story will be told as a musical and with these voices we’re sure the show will be lively. The feature film will hit theaters this holiday season. Check out the official trailer above.
