WATCH: ‘In The Heights’ Official Trailer

The first official trailer for Warner Bros.’ In The Heights is here and it takes us back to Washington Heights.

Inspired by the stage musical created by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegria Hudes, it’s clear that there are some changes from the original production but we’re not worried about it. Lin and Quiara came back to work on the adaptation directed by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2). So we know it’s in good hands. Anthony Ramos (A Star Is Born, Hamilton: An American Musical) leads the cast as bodega owner Usnavi de la Vega and our story begins as he rounds-up a group of kids on an island to tell them a story about his old neighborhood. For those of you wondering where the neighborhood is, here’s a Google Maps screengrab for your reference.
