Emotional New Photos From THE HATE U GIVE Movie Set

THE HATE U GIVE teases its most intense scenes in new set photos!

Filming is currently underway for the film adaptation of Angie Thomas‘ powerful bestselling YA novel The Hate U Give and plenty of photos are cropping up on social media!

The Hate U Give follows Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg), a 16-year-old who witnesses an unarmed friend named Khalil (Algee Smith) fatally shot by police and must find the best way to speak out about the incident while living two separate lives: One at her poor but supportive neighborhood where people know she was present during the shooting, one at her less understanding suburban prep school where the other students don’t realize that Starr was with Khalil that night.

We’ve previously seen some photos from the set, shared by director George Tillman and novelist/producer Angie Thomas, but a series of new photos have arrived courtesy of Instagram user oaktreetee, whose exact connection to the film hasn’t been identified. The behind-the-scenes images range from sweet moments with the Carter family or Starr and Chris to intense moments like Khalil’s death and funeral, with appearances from Tillman and Thomas. We’re also seeing the first of Dominique Fishback, who’s playing Kenya, a friend of Starr’s who is also her half-brother’s sister on his mother’s side.

The Hate U Give doesn’t have an official release date quite yet, but we’re anxious to see it already! You can follow the film’s official Twitter account now.
