Lionsgate debuted a new official trailer for White Bird, the drama film and “next chapter” to the 2017 film Wonder, starring Gillian Anderson along with Helen Mirren.
Also starring in the film are Ariella Glaser returning as Julian, Orlando Schwerdt, and Bryce Gheisar.
Directed by Marc Forster, White Bird opens in theaters on August 25th, 2023.
From the best-selling author of Wonder, the book that sparked a movement to “choose kind,” comes the inspirational next chapter.
In White Bird, we follow Julian (Bryce Gheisar), who has struggled to belong ever since he was expelled from his former school for his treatment of Auggie Pullman. To transform his life, Julian’s grandmother (Helen Mirren) finally reveals to Julian her own story of courage — during her youth in Nazi-occupied France, a boy shelters her from mortal danger. They find first love in a stunning, magical world of their own creation, while the boy’s mother (Gillian Anderson) risks everything to keep her safe.
From director Marc Forster (Finding Neverland and Christopher Robin), screenwriter Mark Bomback, and based on R.J. Palacio’s book, White Bird: A Wonder Story, like Wonder before it, is an uplifting movie about how one act of kindness can live on forever.
