Steven Spielberg’s film West Side Story is coming to Disney+, and will begin streaming March 2 in the U.S. and most international countries. West Side Story is based on the 1957 stage musical of the same name, which was previously adapted as a 1961 film directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins.
Spielberg’s version features Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria, two star-crossed lovers from rival gangs in 1950s New York. Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, Mike Faist, Rita Moreno, Brian d’Arcy James and Corey Stoll also star.
West Side Story is nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress for DeBose and Moreno. The film originally opened in theaters in December.
