Jennifer Hudson sounds absolutely incredible in the new trailer as the late Aretha Franklin, set for release on Christmas Day! The movie also stars Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Marc Maron, Tate Donovan, Tituss Burgess and Sky Dakota Turner.

"Respect" was originally scheduled for release on August 14 before being pushed to October 9 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Franklin, who in 2018 died of pancreatic cancer at the age 76, was a producer on the film. It will now be in theaters on limited release on December 25. The biopic follows Aretha's story from her early days as a gospel singer in Detroit, Michigan to ultimately becoming the undisputed Queen of Soul!
