The Dear Evan Hansen movie is set to premiere in September. Dear Evan Hansen is based on the Tony-winning acclaimed Broadway musical of the same name created by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. It's about a lonely, socially anxious high school student who writes uplifting letters to himself and inadvertently gets himself involved in his classmate's suicide after one of his letters is mistaken for a suicide note. Ben Platt will reprise his Tony-winning role as the title character and rounding out the cast is Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Kaitlyn Dever, Colton Ryan, Amandla Stenberg, and Danny Pino. Stephen Chbosky will direct the feature and Adam Siegel will produce along with Marc Platt, who produced La La Land and is Ben Platt's father.

Per Variety, Universal Pictures has set a release date for the musical teen film of September 24. Universal also has an advantage with the film as they have reached an agreement with AMC Theatres for the opportunity to distribute movies on video on-demand 17 days after release, which includes AMC's own on-demand platform.

Little is known yet about how the Dear Evan Hansen film will be similar to the 2016 musical. It is common with musical films that songs will be added and taken out to suit the story of the movie that would otherwise not work or be necessary on stage. But Pasek and Paul along with Steven Levenson, who wrote the book of the musical, are being brought back to helm the film, so it is highly likely that popular songs such as "Waving Through a Window", "For Forever", and "You Will Be Found" will remain. Only time will tell, but it will certainly be just as exhilarating for fans.
