Watch Now: Behind the Scenes Look at Spielberg’s West Side Story

It’s only just out of reach! The highly-anticipated Steven Spielberg-directed West Side Story will finally hit movie theaters this December, after being delayed a year. Take a behind the scenes look at the film which features Ansel Elgort, Tony Award winner David Alvarez, Tony nominees Ariana Debose, Mike Faist, newcomer Rachel Zegler, and EGOT-winning icon Rita Moreno.

Directed by three-time Oscar winner Steven Spielberg with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, this classic story is an adaptation of the 1957 Broadway musical written by Arthur Laurents with music by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. West Side Story takes place on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and tells the story of two rival gangs of young men, the Jets and the Sharks, and the star-crossed lovers, Tony and Maria, who become mixed up in this long-standing rivalry.

The film hits theaters on December 10, 2021.
