‘Dear Evan Hansen’: Universal’s Adaption Sets for September 2021 Release!!

Universal is set to open Dear Evan Hansen, its adaptation of the Broadway musical that stars Amy Adams, Julianne Moore and Amandla Stenberg, on Sept. 24, 2021.

The Stephen Chbosky-directed movie, which also has Ben Platt reprising on screen his Broadway character of Evan Hansen, will take the place of an Untitled Universal event movie amid a Hollywood release date shuffle sparked by the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, Universal also said it will give another untitled event film a wide release on Sept. 16, 2022.

The screenplay for the Dear Evan Hansen adaptation was written by Steven Levenson, with music and lyrics by the songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Dear Evan Hansen is produced by Marc Platt and Adam Siegel and is executive produced by Michael Bederman, Levenson, Pasek and Paul.

Universal Pictures will distribute the film in all territories.
