Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger transforms into legendary entertainer Judy Garland in the first official teaser trailer for the upcoming bio-pic "Judy."

The film is directed by acclaimed English theatre director Rupert Goold, who previously made his feature directorial debut with 2015's James Franco-Jonah Hill-starring true-crime drama "True Story."

Set in the final months of Garland's life during which she was touring in London while suffering from health issues, alcoholism, and drug addiction, the film is an adaptation of Peter Quilter's 2005 musical stage play "End of the Rainbow."

Intercut with flashback scenes, and chronicling her early career in Vaudeville and Hollywood, as well as her strained relationship with her daughter Liza Minnelli, "Judy" appears to have all the makings of an awards-season biopic.

Co-starring Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Michael Gambon, and Rufus Sewell, "Judy" is hitting theaters September 27th.

synopsis:
Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of "the world's greatest entertainer."
