Room starlet Jacob Tremblay plays a boy with facial differences in Wonder trailer

Back in 2015, Jacob Tremblay won over many fans with his delightful turn as imprisoned youngster Jack in the Oscar-winning drama Room. His popularity grew during the awards season as he charmed his way into the beginning of a promising acting career.

Now the 10 year Canadian starlet is set for a very challenging and unrecognisable role as he headlines the upcoming drama Wonder.

Based on the inspiring novel by R.J Palacio, the film’s official trailer is now available for all to watch.

Directed by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), the story sees Jacob play August Pullman, a boy who struggles to deal with having a facial deformity. Upon entering the fifth grade, August begins attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time and manages to forge a bond with both his new classmates and the local community.

Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman, Erin Brockovich) and Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers, Midnight in Paris) play August’s parents with additional support coming from Izabela Vidovic (Homefront, About a Boy (TV series)), Daveed Diggs (Black-ish, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Sonia Braga (Alias, Luke Cage) and Mandy Patinkin (The Princess Bride, Homeland).

The film is likely to draw comparisons with the 1985 drama Mask which starred Eric Stoltz as deformed teenager Rocky Dennis and Cher as his biker mother.

Wonder will be released in the UK on 8th December.
