The full trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story just dropped. Daniel Radcliffe, who I'm a big fan of, is playing Al.



This is a Roku Original film and will be streaming free on Roku's website (whether you have a Roku player or not) on November 4.

Interesting that this is on the Roku channel. I have a Roku device in any event, but I believe its website is free for those who don't?

Was just asking this question (whether Roku is free)! :)

It's on Roku because Roku financed it as an original production.

Yes, my understanding is that the website is free regardless.

Yes, the Roku Channel app is available on several non-Roku devices, as well, including FireTV, Apple TV, Samsung TVs, and Android devices (which may include TVs running Android).

"...From gifted child prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time." I'd say that's a good clue of what we're in for here (as in heavy on the parody side) but I love Al, so sign me up.

Hahahaha! The parody angle is pure genius and completely apropos for a Weird Al biopic!! I'll definitely be watching this! :)

CHEERS! :)

P.S. Until November 4, this "Weird Al" parody of the Disney Channel's "Going Home" series from the mid '90s is well worth revisiting! :D

Funny, this is the second Weird Al life story parody. I had this on VHS back in the 80s. (Probably still have it somewhere)
