musical film is on the way and the trailer is making millennials feel extremely old.
film that came out in 2004 has secured its place as a cultural classic in the millennial zeitgeist. In 2017, it was made into a Broadway musical and now, a new film version of the musical has got people talking.
A trailer for the new film was released yesterday (8 November) and instantly caused a stir thanks to the words, “This isn’t your mother’s

Millennials took to X/Twitter to defend the fact that they are not
