They made their mark on the Disney Channel in two different time periods, but Zendaya and Zac Efron are coming together now to form the perfect onscreen duo. It was announced that Zendaya and Efron would star in The Greatest Showman a year ago, and since then the anticipation has been high.
The first trailer for the film dropped yesterday and the couple’s chemistry is undeniable. In the movie, Efron plays a man named Phillip and Zendaya plays a showgirl.
The Greatest Showman takes place in Connecticut in the 1800s and revolves around P.T Barnum (Hugh Jackman) and his journey rising from poverty and starting a worldwide circus.
The film uses songs created by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Oscar-winning writers from La La Land.
Unfortunately, we all need to be patient. The Greatest Showman’s theatrical release is not until December 25. Christmas literally could not come any sooner.
