Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Hugh Jackman purses his dream of building a circus in the second trailer for upcoming musical, The Greatest Showman.

The clip, released Monday, features Jackman as Barnum & Bailey Circus founder P.T. Barnum as he struggles and ultimately triumphs in helping to create the show business industry.

In order to complete his dream, Jackman recruits a number of unique individuals to perform during his show including a bearded woman who feel shunned by society.

The trailer also features Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zac Efron and Zendaya as two circus performers who begin to fall in love.

"No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else," Jackman says.

"Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation," reads the synopsis.

The Greatest Showman from director Michael Gracey, is set to arrive in theaters on Dec. 20.
