Calling all musical theater fans. Not only is the Annie movie officially coming to a screen near you soon, there’s also a trailer and everything. Just a heads up: there are two kinds of people – those who get emotional during Annie and those, who don’t have hearts. With that said, let Quvenzhane Wallis melt your heart in just the short time of the trailer.

Watch it below.

A thirty-second teaser trailer and preliminary movie poster were released Wednesday, showing Wallis in the title role, as well as Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks and Cameron Diaz as the villainous Mrs Hannigan. The new clip, released by Entertainment Tonight, looks ever so slightly campy, what with Cameron Diaz’s strangely accented line “You think you’re better than me?” and the iconic Tomorrow, sung by Wallis, dramatically playing in the background. It doesn’t look like the problem is with any of the actors though – Annie was just never meant to be condensed into a trailer.

Nevertheless, with a shining cast like this and the kind of behind-the-scenes talent that this adaptation boasts, it’s hard to imagine it being unsuccessful. Adapted by Saving Mr. Banks’ Emma Thompson, and Aline Brosh McKenna, whose writing credits include 27 Dresses and The Devil Wears Prada, the film is directed by Will Gluck – in a move away from his typical target audience of young adults. The film is billed for a December 19 release date.
