Netflix has just dropped the first trailer for its star-studded movie The Prom - and it's got us so excited for the release.

An adaptation of Jack Viertel's 2018 Tony Award winning Broadway Musical of the same name, the Ryan Murphy-directed film follows four Broadway actors who travel a very conservative town in Indiana upon hearing the news that a lesbian student, Emma, is banned from bringing her girlfriend to prom.

And the trailer is as campy and fabulous as you'd expect - think Chicago meets High School Musical.

In the movie, actress Jo Ellen-Pellman makes her big-screen debut as Emma.

Meanwhile, Meryl Streep appears as award-winning Broadway actress Dee Dee Allen and James Corden joins her as Barry Glickman - two stars who both receive such career ending reviews that they realise a highly publicised charitable favour is their only way back into public favour.

Angie Dickinson (Nicole Kidman), and fellow jobless actor Trent Oliver (Andrew Rannells) join the pair on their mission, and it's then they embark on their journey with the excluded teen.

Other notable names include as Keegan Michael-Key (Key & Peele, Playing House), Andrew Rannell (Girls, Black Monday) and Ariana DeBose - who was an ensemble member of the Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton and is also soon to appear as Anita in West Side Story.

Speaking of the musical previously, Murphy said: "It's truly an original that celebrates the underdog and says in a loving spectacular way that LGBTQ rights are human rights.

"I feel a special connection to it because it's set in Indiana, and that's where I grew up, too."

The film is set to drop on December 11th, and will be available worldwide on the streaming platform.

It's imminent arrival is welcome news to many after it was forced to pause production due to the coronavirus pandemic back in March.

But, if you ask us, a pre-Christmas release is absolutely perfect. Bring on the feel good vibes, catchy songs and happy tears.
