New trailer released for 'The Greatest Showman,' starring Zendaya

A new trailer has dropped for the upcoming P.T. Barnum biopic, The Greatest Showman, which is set to be released on December 20. The film tells the story of P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman), founder of what became the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Starring alongside Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya will play trapeze artist and the girlfriend of Efron's character Anne Wheeler.

The film also features Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Get Down, Aquaman)  as WD Wheeler, a hand-to-hand acrobat partner of Barnum's. Also, while this hasn't been confirmed (and she hasn't appeared in any trailers or marketing thus far), for some time it's been said that Diahann Carroll would play Joyce Heth, a slave exhibited by Barnum under the claim that she nursed George Washington.

Laurence Mark, Jackman and Chernin Entertainment produced the film, while Tony Award nominees Justin Paul and Benj Pasek wrote original songs for it.
