Universal Pictures has released the first The Fabelman family trailer for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama. The film will be released in theaters on November 23, 2022.
The film will be directed by Oscar nominee Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine), Paul Dano (Batman), Seth Rogen (This is the end), and Julia Butters (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), who have taken on roles inspired by Spielberg’s mother, father, favorite uncle and sister, respectively. Meanwhile, Gabriel LaBelle is set to portray the lead role of Sammy Fabelman, inspired by ONE and Indiana Jones movie Maker.

The Fabelman family is loosely inspired by Spielberg’s childhood in Arizona, which the director has often cited as a major inspiration for his films. Growing up in an Orthodox Jewish family has been the subject that the director often revisits and pays tribute to throughout his work.
Additional cast includes Oakes Fegley, Gabriel Bateman, Nicolas Cantu, Sam Rechner, Judd Hirsh, Chloe East, Isabell Kusman, Jeannie Berlin, Jan Hoag and more.
The semi-autobiographical feature has been in development for more than 20 years. It will be directed and produced by Spielberg from a script he co-wrote with Tony Kushner. The producers are Kushner and Kristie Macosko Krieger.
