The London drama from 1968 – based on the musical drama End of the Rainbow by Peter Quilter from 2005 – plays on September 27 in the US and on October 4 in the UK.

In the latest trailer, fans got to hear a little more from Zellweger who sang a cover of Garland & # 39; s characteristic song from 1939 about The Rainbow by The Wizard of Oz.

& # 39; There was a bit of freedom in the knowledge that there were nights where there were some misses and compromises and inability to access its full instrument, & # 39; told the Bridget Jones alum LA Times on Thursday.

& # 39; So it was very liberating to have that in mind. I could just be it. It probably also brought a bit of truth to the experience because, I understand, I was afraid that she would not perform at the level that people expected of her and she had stage fright. So the mix made it very real and true. & # 39;

Renée also recorded Get Happy with Sam Smith and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas with Rufus Wainwright on the Judy soundtrack – on 27 September.

Zellweger has not sung and danced since her Oscar-nominated turn as vaudevillian Roxie Hart in Rob Marshall & # 39; s 2002 major adaptation of the Broadway musical Chicago.

The triple Golden Globe winner had no luck in contacting Judy's three surviving children – one of whom – Liza Minnelli condemned the film outright.
