Quvenzhane Wallis appears as Annie in a scene from the 2014 holiday movie 'Annie,' a remake of the hit Broadway musical and 1982 film.

The first trailer for the anticipated reboot of the musical children's film "Annie," starring Quvenzhane Wallis in the title role, has been released!

The new movie, a remake of a 1982 classic, also stars Jamie Foxx as a rich politician who adopts Annie from an orphanage owned by Miss Hannigan, played by Cameron Diaz. Wallis, 10, received an Oscar nomination in 2013 for her role in "Beasts of the Southern Wild" and recently played Solomon Northrup's daughter in "12 Years A Slave," which won Best Picture on March 2.
