Renee Zellweger Transforms Into Judy Garland in First 'Judy' Biopic Trailer

Roadside Attractions on Friday released the first trailer for its upcoming Judy Garland biopic, Judy, starring Renee Zellweger as the late actress.

As a stripped-down version of the Wizard of Oz classic "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" plays, the minute-long clip shows Zellweger's Garland touching down in London for a series of sold-out concerts at the Talk of the Town nightclub (now known as the Hippodrome) between 1968 and 1969. The Rupert Goold-directed film — adapted from Peter Quilter’s musical End of the Rainbow — explores Garland's final days before her she died from an accidental drug overdose at age 47 in June 1969, while living in the U.K.

"It was such a joy learning about the magnificence of this person," Zellweger said of stepping into Garland's shoes. "I always admired her. She was so quick and so funny. She could hit the ball back with the best of them."

Along with Zellweger, Judy stars Finn Wittrock, Michael Gambon, Rufus Sewell and Gemma Leah-Devereux, among others. This marks Zellweger's first leading film role since 2016's Bridget Jones's Baby.
