Les Misérables Is Coming This Christmas

The musical version of Les Misérables is set to be released in theaters this Christmas. It stars Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine. I’m a big fan of Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean. The rest of the cast is exciting as well. (HT: 22 Words)

I’m still a big fan of the dramatic 1998 version that starred Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Trailer below:

    We had the opportunity to watch Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Les Miserables) sing recently along with several of the original cast from Broadway. Totally awesome!!!! We are really looking forward to this as well.

    Agreed – the Neeson version is excellent. Les Mis is one of the most beautiful, gospel-rich stories ever written. Saw the musical when it came to town a few years ago and am definitely looking forward to the new adaptation.

    If you’ve never listened to the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre version it is definitely worth the time. It is not a musical, but a complete dramatic radio theater. It is outstanding…the scene with Valjean, Cossette and Jovert when she spits in the mayor’s face is moving and humbling.
