First look at Whitney Houston feature, I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Whitney Houston sang her way into our queer hearts in the 1980s and 1990s and her rise to fame and her legacy are the subject of new feature film, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

What the filmmakers say:

I Wanna Dance with Somebody is a powerful and triumphant celebration of the incomparable Whitney Houston. Directed by Kasi Lemmons (Harriet, Eve’s Bayou), written by Academy Award® nominee Anthony McCarten (Bohemian Rhapsody), produced by legendary music executive Clive Davis and starring BAFTA Award® winner Naomi Ackie, the film is a no-holds-barred portrait of the complex and multifaceted woman behind The Voice.

From New Jersey choir girl to one of the best-selling and most awarded recording artists of all time, audiences are taken on an inspirational, poignant—and so emotional—journey through Houston’s trailblazing life and career, with show-stopping performances and a soundtrack of the icon’s most beloved hits as you’ve never heard them before. Don’t you wanna dance?

Starring Naomi Ackie as Whitney Houston, Nafessa Williams as Robyn Crawford, and Stanley Tucci as Clive Davis, I Wanna Dance with Somebody will be released in theaters nationwide on December 21, 2022 from Sony Pictures.
