Marrooooonnnne!!! The first trailer for The Many Saints of Newarkthe prequel film to The Sopranos, has finally arrived. 

It’s been fourteen years since The Sopranos finale graced our gogglebox, and there’s been a ziti shaped hole in our heart since. The forthcoming prequel film is the fix we need to keep our agita at bay.

The Mant Saints of Newark is set to explore the relationship between a young Tony Soprano — played by the late, great James Gandolfini’s (RIP KING!) son Michael— and Dicki Moltisanti, the father of Michael Imperioli’s Christopher Moltisani.

Set against a backdrop of the 1967 race riots in Newark, New Jersey. An official description for the series details that Saints will see a young Tony Soprano “growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark’s history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family’s hold over the increasingly race-torn city.

“Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities – and whose influence over his impressionable nephew will help make the teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we’ll later come to know.”

The Many Saints of Newark will see Vera Farmiga as Livia Soprano, Billy Magnussen as Paulie Walnuts, Corey Stoll as Junior Soprano and John Magaro as Silvio Dante. The cast also includes Leslie Odom Jr., Jon Bernthal, Michela De Rossi, John Magaro and Ray Liotta.

Alan Taylor directed the film, which was produced and co-written alongside series creator David Chase. The film opens on Oct. 1 in theatres and on HBO Max, where it will stream for 31 days following its cinema debut. Watch the trailer below.
