The new movie is an adaptation of the beloved stage musical (which was an adaptation of the O.G. film). Winfrey promised the latest version will be well worth the watch. “I can tell you for sure this version ain’t your mama’s Color Purple. But I bet you, your mama, and the whole family are gonna love it,” she explained. “It’s full of magical realism and visual surprises. It is beautiful and joyful. It’s hopeful and proud. And it carries iconic depth and meaning. All the things I believe people will feel when they see the film come Christmas 2023.”
Winfrey continued, “If you liked the original, I guarantee you’re going to be rejoicing when you see this version.”
