Directed by Blitz Bazawule (Black Is King) and produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Scott Sanders, and Quincy Jones, The Color Purple stars H.E.R., Halle Bailey, Taraji P. Henson, Danielle Brooks, Colman Domingo, and Fantasia Barrino making her major motion picture debut.
The American Idol winner stunned at Warner Bros. Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation where she chatted with Oprah, Taraji P. Henson, and Danielle Brooks about the monumental ensemble film that also stars Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Corey Hawkins, David and Tamela Mann, and Louis Gossett Jr.
‘I was standing beside some amazing actors who made me step my game up,’ said Fantasia who reprises her role as ‘Celie’ in the film.
‘My life was so much like hers at the time so stepping into her shoes night after night was heavy… so I had to pull up some things that I had buried but I felt safe doing it because my director and cast surrounded me and I was able to go back into that place. I am Celie.’
Moviegoers can expect to experience every emotion during the star-studded musical that opens in theaters on Christmas Day.
‘You’re gonna laugh, you’re gonna cry, everybody brings it,’ she added. ‘But in the end, you’ll be healed. Because guess what? I was healed.’
