Considered the pioneer of reggae music, Marley, a native of Jamaica, began performing in 1963 with The Wailers. He went solo more than a decade later in 1974 and had a profound impact on the music landscape before he died of cancer in 1981 at the age of 36.
But in that short lifetime he changed the landscape of music and introduced reggae to the world. His timeless songs, including “Get Up, Stand Up,” “One Love,” “No Woman, No Cry,” and more, continue to resonate with fans around the world.
With an incredible cast and talented team behind the scenes, this film is sure to be a must-see for fans of Bob Marley, reggae music, and musical biopics. The film is set to hit theaters on January 12, 2024. Don’t miss it!
