Others, who have also watched the trailer in awe, are taking to social media to demand a different type of justice for Tubman - her face on the $20 bill.

On Tuesday, Focus Features released the first trailer for the upcoming film Harriet, a biopic about the gun-toting abolitionist Republican Harriet Tubman.

Janelle Monáe, Joe Alwyn, Jennifer Nettles, and Clarke Peters. Check out the trailer above.

Directed by Kasi Lemmons, the film follows the unforgettable true story of Harriet Tubman as she escaped from slavery and became one of history's greatest freedom fighters. The screenplay, written by Gregory Allen Howard (Remember the Titans), is set for a November 1, 2019, release date.

"Harriet" is produced by Martin Chase Productions, New Balloon and Stay Gold Features. She died in her early 90s in 1913 and is buried at Fort Hill Cemetery in Auburn.

"I made it this far on my own, so don't tell me what I can't do", Harriet says, dedicating her life to the cause.

Leslie Odom Jr. plays abolitionist William Still, who helped organize and finance many of Tubman's trips on the Underground Railroad. "I knew she was 5 foot, or 4'11′". "I will give every last drop of blood in my veins until this monster called slavery is dead".
