The resemblance is seriously uncanny, is it not? The above first look at Malek in full costume for the Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, may be old news, but director Bryan Singer couldn’t contain his excitement and shared yet another sneak peek of Malek in costume!

Pretty wild, huh? According to Entertainment Weekly, it’s not just Malek’s looks that’ll align with Freddie’s but also his voice. To prepare, he’s been working in Abbey Road Studios. TBD on whether his voice is as spot-on as his appearance, but if these pictures serve as clues of what else is coming, then we’re in for a musical treat.

Bohemian Rhapsody makes its way to theaters on December 25, 2018.

In the meantime, check out this Brian May filming inception:
