Filming on The Color Purple Has Officially Wrapped

 Filming on The Color Purple Has Officially Wrapped
Posted By: ComposeR CreatoR on July 22, 2022


The cast shared final on-set memories from the upcoming project, which Oprah is co-producing.

The latest evolution of The Color Purple story is coming to the big screen in 2023: Oprah is joining forces with Steven Spielberg, Quincy Jones, and Scott Sanders to bring The Color Purple musical—which premiered on Broadway in 2005—to life. “To reinvent the movie at this time is to reinvent a phenomenon,” says Oprah.

The cast and crew includes a wealth of talented actors and singers, from Taraji P. Henson to H.E.R. to Jon Batiste.



In July 2022, the cast officially wrapped filming—and several of those involved took to Instagram to reflect on their wonderful experience.

Blitz Bazawule, the director of the film (who also helmed Beyoncé’s Black Is King), thanked everyone involved—including Lady O—and said, “I have no doubt we have created something special and can't wait to share with the world.” Oprah herself commented to confirm: “It’s Gonna be SPECTACULAR—for sure!”
