Steven Spielbergsemi-autobiographical drama Fabelmans has set a Thanksgiving 2022 release date. Inspired by Spielberg’s childhood, Fabelmans takes place in Arizona, where the filmmaker spent his formative years.
Fabelmans is said to have told a dramatic version of Spielberg’s journey from a movie lover to one of the most influential directors of all time.

In the late 50s and early 60s, Spielberg spent his younger years in Phoenix, Arizona, where he began experimenting with 8mm film in his backyard.

Since then, Spielberg has repeatedly revolutionized Cinema, with films like Close encounters of the third type, Raiders of the Lost Ark, ET the Extra-Terrestrial, and Jurassic Park. And that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the dozens of incredible stories that Spielberg has helped bring to life.
Spielberg’s next film, West story, is the second feature-length adaptation of the 1957 musical of the same name, with lyrics written by the recently adopted newcomer. Stephen Sondheim. New adaptation stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and María, two star-crossed lovers at the center of Romeo and Juliet– fascinating musical.
