Here's the First Trailer for the "In the Heights" Movie

Lights up on Washington Heights—because the trailer for the movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical In the Heights has arrived. It's our first look into Lin-Manuel Miranda's latest venture into film—because LMM isn't stopping at three Tony awards, a Grammy award, and an Emmy.


As an added bonus, we get to take a first look at choreographer Christopher Scott's moves for the movie, which we have no doubt will be next-level amazing. After all, Scott's resumé also includes choreography for Step Up Revolution, Step Up All In, both Teen Beach Movie films, and Z-O-M-B-I-E-S.

The two-minute trailer has us counting down the days until the film's release next June. (And, of course, counting down the days until LMM is awarded his much-deserved EGOT. 👀)

There's also an extra, specially-edited version of the trailer on TikTok, for all you social media-savvy dancers. We have the feeling that we're about to watch it roughly "96,000" times.
