ESSENCE Dec Cover

Tis the season to be jolly! And from the looks of it actor Jamie Foxx and his impossibly cute companion are ready to begin the festivities early.

11 year-old Quvenzhane Wallis will be back to claim our hearts once again in the remake of the musical Annie, which will arrive in theaters on December 19.

The film produced by Will and Jada Smith stars Wallis and Foxx as father daughter and if the process of shooting is reflected in the finished product, then we can be assured that it will quite a fun ride.

Foxx who immediately took on the fatherly role in real life while working with his adorable co-star admits that they both had way too much fun on set. And Wallis concurs – “I like working with Jamie, he’s fun.

The casting of Wallis in the role of the precocious Annie seems to be the perfect fit and will give audiences a chance to see the playfully cheeky side of the young actress who has already proven her acting chops with exceptional performances in films like Beasts of the Southern Wild which earned her an Oscar nomination making her the youngest person to garner a Best Actress nomination. She was also featured in the Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave.

The early reviews of the much-anticipated film have been favorable and we are sure that Wallis has everything to do with it.
