Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are featured in the first trailer for the upcoming “Yellowstone” prequel “1883,” which is set to premiere on Paramount+ on December 19.
McGraw portrays the Dutton family patriarch James, while Hill plays matriarch Margaret Dutton. Sam Elliot, who also stars in the movie, plays the “tough as nails” cowboy Shea Brennan.
According to a release, “1883” follows the Dutton family as they trek west through America in search of a more promising future in Montana. The family confronts loss and hardship as they plow their way westward.
“I heard a thousand stories, but no one could describe this place,” a female’s voice narrates over shots of vast land. “The road west is filled with failures.”
“It was a dream, and the dream was coming true,” the trailer continues, showcasing clips of settlers migrating west in Conestoga wagons and battle scenes over the fight for land. “We are the land of no mercy now.”
The western drama also features Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton, “Young Sheldon” actress Isabel May and “Sons of Anarchy” star LaMonica Garrett.
“Finally the day has come when I get to share some exciting news with you!” Hill wrote in August alongside a Boomerang video of herself peeking out from behind the episode one script.
“I will be playing Margaret Dutton, the original matriarch of the Dutton family in the Yellowstone prequel 1883. Just wait, you have never seen anything like this!” she added.
“We’re pretty excited about it,” McGraw also said in a video shared on his own Instagram. “Faith and I get to star alongside Sam Elliott. I mean, goodness gracious.”
