Highly anticipated Where The Crawdads Sing trailer starring Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones revealed

The movie is based on the best-selling book by the same name

The first trailer has been released for Where The Crawdads Sing starring Normal People actor Daisy Edgar-Jones.

The film, which is based on a book by the same name written by Delia Owens, was adapted for the big screen by Reese Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine.

Edgar Jones stars in the picture as Kya, a six-year-old girl who watches as her family is abandoned by her mother. Soon, all of her siblings leave due to her father’s violent nature.

Eventually he vanishes too, leaving the young girl to live alone in an isolated marsh in North Carolina.

Alienated from the townspeople as she grows up, Kya befriends Tate (Taylor John Smith) who teaches her how to read and write.


The story picks up years later when Kya turns 19 and begins a romance with Chase Andrews (Harris Dickinson).

Drawn to the two young men, Kya’s world opens up but when one of them turns up dead, she is the main suspect.

As the case unfolds, the truth about what really happened becomes more unclear.

Directed by Olivia Newman the film also stars Harris Dickinson, Michael Hyatt, Sterling Macer, Jr. and David Strathairn.

Lucy Alibar adapted the screenplay while Betsy Danbury and Rhonda Fehr are executive producers. Taylor Swift also wrote a brand new track for the flick titled ‘Carolina’.
