Disney+ released a trailer for the film version of “Trevor: The Musical,” based on the off-Broadway production. The musical is based on the 1995 Academy Award-winning short film “Trevor,” which eventually inspired the founding of The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization that has grown into the world’s largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ young people.
The trailer for the musical production features the film’s 13-year-old star, Holden William Hagelberger, who stars in the titular role, and deals with Trevor’s trials and tribulations of becoming a teenager in the early 1980s. Disney describes the movie in a statement: “As he deals with becoming a teenager in 1981, Trevor struggles to navigate his own identity and determine how he fits in a challenging world. When an embarrassing incident at school suddenly puts him under the wrong spotlight, Trevor must summon the courage to forge his own path. A deeply moving and funny story of self-discovery and the power of acceptance.”
The film is slated for release June 24 on the company’s Disney+ streaming platform. It will be added to the streaming service’s newly announced ‘Pride Collection,’ which coincides with Pride Month. “Trevor: The Musical” will join other LGBTQ content on the platform through the month of June. The collection is available to all Disney+ subscribers.
