Renée Zellweger brings Judy Garland to London streets 49 years after her death

A star is reborn!

Hollywood icon Judy Garland appears in London 49 years after her death – thanks to Renée Zellweger’s transformation.

The Bridget Jones’s Diary star wore a 60s coat, huge hat and big shades for new biopic Judy, about the Wizard of Oz legend’s last days.

She died of a drug overdose in Chelsea in 1969 at just 47 while doing a series of UK shows.

Renee, 48, was filming in the East End – so it was more Brick Lane than Yellow Brick Road.

Maybe she’ll remake the Wizard of Oz next – so we can see Bridget Jones’s Dorothy.

The Cold Mountain actress will star alongside Harry Potter actor Sir Michael Gambon in the feature film, which is being directed by double Olivier Award-winner Rupert Goold.

War And Peace actress Jessie Buckley and American Horror Story actor Finn Wittrock will also appear.

Judy is set in 1968 and tells the story of Garland arriving in London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town nightclub, 30 years after her rise to fame in The Wizard Of Oz.

The film shows the charismatic yet fragile star’s battle with management while dealing with the struggle of spending her whole life in the spotlight and her yearning to be at home with her children.
