Lifetime unveiled a trailer for its Beaches remake, providing a sneak peek of Idina Menzel and Nia Long in the roles originally made famous by Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.
The remake, like the 1988 original, follows C.C. (Menzel) and Hillary (Long) over several decades, including the former’s stage success and the latter’s tragic illness. Despite coming from different backgrounds, C.C., a budding singer, and Hillary, the daughter of a civil rights lawyer, strike up a friendship that lasts a lifetime.
The trailer also features Menzel’s cover of “Wind Beneath My Wings”; Midler’s version peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1989 and won Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 1990 Grammys.
Beaches airs Saturday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
