There are a lot of exciting projects coming to Disney+ this year from Marvel and Star Wars, but those franchises aren’t the only things to look forward to from the streaming service. Today, Disney+ announced that a filmed version of the Off-Broadway production of Trevor: The Musical will debut exclusively on the streaming service. Trevor: The Musical was produced by RadicalMedia and follows “a charming 13-year-old on a turbulent journey of self-discovery.” You can read a full description below:
“After an embarrassing incident at school, Trevor must summon the courage to forge his own path. The musical is based on the 1995 Academy Award-winning short film Trevor which ultimately inspired the nonprofit organization The Trevor Project; the world’s largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) young people.” Disney+ took to Instagram today to share a poster of the production. You can check it out below:
The Trevor: The Musical cast includes 13-year-old Holden William Hagelberger in the titular role.
