The first official trailer for the new West Side Story film is finally here - and we are very excited!

Unveiled during the 2021 Oscars yesterday, viewers were treated to the trailer for Steven Spielberg's remake of the classic 1961 musical.

The trailer for the film - which centres on two rival New York street gangs in a Romeo and Juliet-style scenario - shows that Spielberg has stayed faithful to the beloved original.

There are clips of the songs 'Dance at the Gym', 'Somewhere' and 'Tonight', while the original film's iconic intro gets a revival.

Spielberg's remake sees Ansel Elgort take on the role of Tony, while Rachel Zegler plays Maria.

West Side Story will be released on December 10, having been delayed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic - and we can't wait!
