The Greatest Showman made a huge splash when it came out over a year ago.
With its inspiring story and incredible cast, the musical won fans all over the world - it's a good sign when a film's soundtrack remains the top-selling album for almost a whole year and even wins a Grammy!
But its success attracted quite a lot of backlash too. Not everyone agreed that it was worth the hype. Hugh Jackman recently addressed the criticism and how it has affected him. Keep reading to hear more on that.
Jackman also admitted that something truly "great" is happening - and it's coming in the form of a sequel! Whether he was supposed to reveal that or not is another question...
There isn't much information out there about its storyline just yet, but Vanity Fair has made some very promising observations. Read on to find out what we might have in store.
The lead role in The Greatest Showman was Wolverine himself, and the movie was a highlight of 2017.The musical is based on the true story of P.T. Barnum (although it does digress from that truth slightly...) and follows the revolutionary showman's rise to success.
Casting other A-list actors, including Zac Efron and Zendaya, was a genius move.
It became the best-selling record of 2018 after it had sold 1.6 million copies worldwide, says NME.
