Since Quvenzhané Wallis stole hearts as the tiny tragic heroine of last year's Oscar-nominated film Beasts of the Southern Wild, audiences have been waiting to see her shine in a less heavy role. Now, the first opportunity has arrived. The 10-year-old Wallis will be playing the title character in an upcoming musical remake of Annie, and the first trailer has just been released. In addition to Wallis, the film, which will be released later this year, stars Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx.
See the stars in action (and singing a revamped version of the musical's beloved tunes) in the trailer below:
