We have an exclusive featurette from the musical drama Joyful Noise, which was released this week on Blu-ray and DVD. Actors Dolly Parton, Keke Palmer, and Jeremy Jordan discuss this tale about a young man who shakes things up for a traditional church choir. Check it out.Dolly Parton (Transamerica, Steel Magnolias, Nine to Five) star in Alcon Entertainment's and Warner Bros. Pictures' Joyful Noise, a funny and inspirational story of music, hope, love and renewal.
The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill (Latifah), stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow (Parton) thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.
Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.'s rebellious grandson, Randy (Jeremy Jordan). Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Rose's beautiful and talented daughter, Olivia (Keke Palmer), and the sparks between the two teenagers are causing even more heat between G.G. and Vi Rose.
If these two strong-willed women can overcome their differences and find a common voice, they-and their choir-may make the most joyful noise of all.
