With just over two months left be­fore The Prom ar­rives on Net­flix, di­rec­tor Ryan Mur­phy of­fered new photos and poster from his up­com­ing movie. The film­maker had pre­vi­ously shared photos of him­self pos­ing with his cast, but he took to In­sta­gram on Wed­nes­day to share some of­fi­cial pics from the film.

‘IT’S TIME TO DANCE - Your first look at #The­p­rom is here! Join me and this in­cred­i­ble all-star cast for the hol­i­day event of the sea­son —com­ing to Net­flix De­cem­ber 11,’ Mur­phy said in the cap­tion of his In­sta­gram post.

The film, based on the 2016 Broad­way mu­si­cal of the same name, fol­lows Broad­way stars Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glick­man (James Cor­den), whose Broad­way play about Eleanor Roo­sevelt is deemed a ca­reer-end­ing fail­ure. Seek­ing a cause they can throw their sup­port be­hind, to re­vi­talise their names, they head to a small In­di­ana town to ad­vo­cate for a high school stu­dent named Emma (Jo Ellen Pell­man), who is told by her In­di­ana school board she can­not at­tend prom with her girl­friend Alyssa (Ari­ana De­bose). Allen and Glick­man are joined by Angie (Ni­cole Kid­man) and Trent (An­drew Ran­nells) to ad­vo­cate for Emma, but when their ac­tivism fails, they all band to­gether to give Emma and Alyssa the night they de­serve.

The first photo fea­tures all of the Broad­way stars, Barry, Angie, Trent and Dee Dee shar­ing a laugh around a ta­ble, dressed up for the ‘prom.’ The

sec­ond photo ap­pears to be from a re­hearsal of some sort, with Dee Dee per­form­ing in all black, as Barry, Trent, Emma and Alyssa look on. The third im­age of­fered a look at Dee Dee and Barry’s failed Eleanor Roo­sevelt play, show­cas­ing a song-and-dance rou­tine.

Mur­phy also shared a snap of what could be the end of a big mu­si­cal num­ber, with Ellen, dressed in a pow­der blue tuxedo, rais­ing her hand tri­umphantly with Alyssa in a stylish pur­ple dress, with sev­eral char­ac­ters cel­e­brat­ing around them.

The next photo fea­tures Alyssa stand­ing in front of a mir­ror with her mother, played by Kerry Washington. The fi­nal im­age fea­tures Barry, Angie and Dee Dee all smil­ing, along­side Mr. Hawkins (Kee­gan Michael Key), the high school prin­ci­pal. Also fea­tured in the mas­sive cast but not pic­tured is Mary Kay Place, Tracey Ull­man and Kevin Cham­ber­lain.

Mur­phy di­rects the film based on the adapted script writ­ten by the cre­ators of the hit play, Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin and Jack Vier­til.

With the de­but of these photos, the trailer could be just around the cor­ner as we get closer to the De­cem­ber 11 pre­miere date.
