            Jacob Tremblay has disappeared out of the spotlight since his awards campaign with Room. He’s since starred in a couple B-level horror movies and Colin Trevorrow’s disappointing film, The Book of Henry but his next big-time project, Wonder is hitting theaters later this year. We have yet another trailer for the adaptation of the best-selling novel from R.J. Palacio.

            Wonder follows Auggie, a young boy who has multiple facial deformities from surgeries and heads to public school for the first time. Though his family has reservations about Auggie being in school at first, he makes new friends who help him truly understand what it means to be himself. This trailer is much better than the first in my opinion, truly encompassing what the novel is all about. Since the book is one of my favorites, I’m highly anticipating this movie. Stephen Chbosky has writing credits on some terrific movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower (which was also his directorial debut) and the live-action Beauty and the Beast so for this being his second feature film he’s directing, it’s an interesting and exciting prospect.

            Check out the new trailer below for Wonder! The movie stars Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin and Sonia Braga. Wonder hits theaters on November 17th
