A new trailer has arrived for the remake of Alex Haley’s celebrated series, Roots, and the television event that gripped a generation will do so again this Memorial Day.

This multi-generational drama begins with the story of Kunta Kinte (in what looks like an amazing performance from newcomer Malachai Kirby) who is kidnapped and sold into slavery. What follows is a brutal but powerful story of survival, and eventual prosperity as Kinte’s ancestors rise from squalor and go on to succeed in America.

Packed with a phenomenal cast including Forest Whitaker, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anna Paquin, Anika Noni Rose, Matthew Goode, Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris, and Laurence Fishburne as Alex Haley, Roots is sure to enthral audiences on May 30.
