The premiere of the trailer for HBO Max's upcoming Sopranos prequel movie, The Many Saints of Newark, gave us a look at some of our favorite characters from the long-running mobster series as "youts." Not only do we meet a spry and fresh-faced Tony Soprano but also Paulie, Silvio, Uncle Junior, and Tony's parents Johnny Boy and Livia.

The Many Saints of Newark, from Sopranos creator David Chase and series writer Lawrence Konner, transports us back to 1970s Newark, New Jersey as young Anthony "Tony" Soprano comes of age right as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family's hold over the increasingly race-torn city. Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities.

In this video, you'll find a Saints vs. Sopranos side-by-side cast comparison, pairing the original series stars with their new flashback counterparts. That includes Michael Gandolfini as Tony Soprano, taking on the role made famous by his late father, James Gandolfini, plus Alessandro Nivola as Dickie Moltisanti, Vera Farmiga as Livia Soprano, and more.
