The first trailer for the Dolly Parton-inspired Netflix movie Dumplin’ has been released.

The film – which is a musical comedy based on Julie Muphy’s book of the same name – follows a former beauty queen (Jennifer Aniston) and her plus-sized teenage daughter (Danielle Macdonald) who enters herself into a beauty contest after being inspired by Parton’s music.

In the trailer, we get a first glimpse of RuPaul's Drag Race star Ginger Minj who seems to perform Parton numbers at a drag bar.

As well as the new rendition of ‘Here I Am’, Parton also contributed six new songs for the album.

Rolling Stone report that Aniston, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples, Miley Cyrus, Elle King, Rhonda Vincent and Alison Krauss are also collaborating with Parton on the soundtrack.

Dumplin’ is set to debut on the streaming site later this year and the soundtrack will be available on November 30 from Dolly Records/RCA Nashville.
