The first trailer for the Renée Zellweger and Jessie Buckley-starring Judy Garland biopic Judy has been released, and it looks like a film worth making a song and dance over.

With Zellweger in the title role, Judy tells the story of Garland's final shows in London before her death in June 1969 at the age of 47.

The biopic features some of Garland's best-known songs. Zellweger previously showcased her vocal talents in 2003's Chicago, winning a Golden Globe and receiving Oscar and BAFTA nominations.
