If there weren't enough reasons to be excited for the upcoming movie musical The Prom, here's one more.

Directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee, The Boys in the Band, The Politician, American Horror Story), the silver screen version of the hit Broadway show will be available to stream just in time for the festive season. The film's cast includes Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key, Ariana DeBose, and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman. The physical version of the album will be released shortly after, on December 18.

The Prom (Music From the Netflix Film) notably features a new song original to the film, "Wear Your Crown", which celebrates The Prom's feel-good message and features Streep rapping.

When they meet a high school student who has been banned from attending prom with her girlfriend, the two see a ideal opportunity to support a cause and resurrect their public image. Sensing a chance to correct an injustice, and maybe get some good publicity along the way, a group of fading celebrities takes up the cause, and invades Emma's small IN town.

Is it the worst thing we've ever heard?

The film, which will be released on Netflix December 4, is adapted from the Broadway musical, "The Prom" tells the story of a troupe of self-obsessed theater stars who swarm into a conservative IN town to support a high-school girl who wants to take her girlfriend to prom.
