Netflix’s ‘The Prom’ Gets a Full Trailer!

With the Broadway musical-turned movie adaption, The Prom, releasing next month, we expected a full length trailer would be presented soon. What we didn’t expect was that Netflix would give our Thanksgiving some  “zazz” by releasing on said holiday!

In the trailer, right away we are introduced to Emma Nolan, a high schooler that just wants to take her girlfriend, Alyssa Greene, to prom. But unfortunately is met with some disapproval (ahem homophobia) from her school’s PTA and the school dance is cancelled for all! But when a pack of Broadway stars head to town to try and save the prom, they’ll stop at nothing to make Emma’s dreams come true!


“Let’s give this girl a prom!”

From the trailer alone, this writer can tell the film is going to be the perfect amount of top notch musical performances (complete with jaw dropping choreography, similar to the Broadway show), stunning cinematography and of course, immense lgbtq+ representation/moments! (I got teary eyed over the clip of “Dance With You”)

The synopsis for The Prom is as follows:

Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (Jo Ellen Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Keegan-Michael Key), the head of the PTA (Kerry Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose). When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

What are you most looking forward to in The Prom? Fans of the Broadway musical? Let us know what scene/musical number you’re most excited to see! (For this writer, it’s either “You Happened” or “Just Breathe.”)

The Prom dances into select theaters, and also on Netflix, December 11th!
