Yes, Steven Spielberg’s attempt at recreating one of the most iconic and beloved musicals of all time, West Side Story, is finally coming to Disney+ on Wednesday. I have to admit, I’m kind of excited.
After recently watching E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for the first time (which was one of the most magical movie experiences I’ve ever had, I couldn’t stop crying for the last thirty minutes by the way) and seeing the last hour of The Color Purple on AMC today I was once again reminded about the incredible filmmaker that Steven Spielberg is.
He is a magician, deftly using his incredible genius to make some of the greatest movies of all time. And now I get to see how he handles a musical. That’s a fascinating thought.
Thankfully I’ve only seen West Side Story once so I’ve honestly forgotten most of the story. I’m very excited to share my review with you all and hopefully, I’ll enjoy it more than I did the original.
And then two days after that, I get to see The Batman. Oh my goodness, I’m so excited!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
