May 25 (UPI) -- Jacob Tremblay stars a young boy with Treacher Collins syndrome and a cleft palate attending school for the first time in the first trailer for Wonder.
"I've had 27 surgeries," Tremblay says in a voice over. "They help me to breathe, see, to hear without a hearing-aid, but none of them have made me look ordinary."
After being picked on by fellow classmates, Tremblay starts to make friends and begins to change the school's attitude regarding his appearance.
"Have you ever thought about having plastic surgery?" one friend asks. "Dude this is after plastic surgery. It takes a lot of work to look this good."
"Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out," reads the synopsis.
Directed by Stephen Chbosky and also starring Mandy Patinkin and Daveed Diggs, Wonder arrives in theaters Nov. 17.
