Beaches With Idina Menzel and Nia Long Offers a First Look

The film's first trailer includes Menzel's rendition of "Wind Beneath My Wings."

Remember that Beaches remake that Lifetime dream cast with Tony winner Idina Menzel and Nia Long as best friends CC and Hillary? We finally have tangible evidence of its reality with this new trailer of the reboot. In addition to cameos by Broadway veterans Gabriella Pizzolo (Fun Home) and Grace Capeless (Matilda The Musical), who play the young versions of our leading ladies, we also get a sampling of Menzel's cover of the iconic song "Wind Beneath My Wings," which Bette Midler famously performed for the original 1988 film.

Take a look at the trailer below and get your DVRs ready for January 21 when Beaches makes its long-awaited comeback.
