Wow. Those stills make it look so classic. And the costumes are amazing!

I'm really excited for this, especially with how disappointed I was when In The Heights got delayed until next year. Oh well, maybe at least West Side Story can have all the musical movie glory this year. :D

I don't think that would happen due to how Spielberg cast this film with some really talented people who have solid singing abilities. Also dubbing in musical films rarely happen anymore so there isn't anything to worry about. :)

I actually would prefer dubbing to autotune--that's just a general statement about film musicals these days. But if you're right, Musical Master, neither will be in this, which is even better.

Dubbing actors in musicals was a lot more common in the '60s and '50s than today. Nowadays, filmmakers are a lot more likely to hire actors to sing their own parts in movie musicals. Even Disney no longer casts a separate person to do the singing voice for their animated characters, like they did with Aladdin and Jasmine or Simba and Nala (although Simba never made sense to me, since Matthew Broderick is a well known Broadway musical performer).

The last time I can remember an actor not singing their character's song in a movie musical was Minnie Driver in "Phantom of the Opera" and that was more because they needed someone who sounded like a trained opera singer. Driver still sang the end credits song.

Matthew said that Disney decided not to use his singing voice because he couldn't "pull off" the pop-style singing: https://youtu.be/1_5LVSws3-Q?t=57

I was more referring to live-action film musicals. Yes, animated films often cast people who can sing for their parts, unlike most live-action film musicals these days. I would've much preferred they dubbed for people like Emma Thompson, Mena Massoud, Emma Watson, Melissa McCarthy, etc.

I was hoping this would still come out this year. :(

Thank God! I'm glad it got moved to next year. This movie deserves to be seen on the big screen and I'm happy it'll still get that opportunity (safely).
