Disney+ has dropped the official trailer for the forthcoming sequel to its 2020 coming-of-age dramedy Hollywood Stargirl, starring Grace VanderWaal. It will be available for streaming on Friday, June 3.
The video, which you can check out in the player below, features the titular character as she moves to California, where she meets one-hit-wonder Roxanne Martel, portrayed by Uma Thurman.
Hollywood Stargirl is directed by Julia Hart from a screenplay she co-wrote with Jordan Horowitz. It stars Grace VanderWaal, Judy Greer, Elijah Richardson, Tyrel Jackson Williams, Judd Hirsch, and Uma Thurman.
“The sequel follows Stargirl’s journey out of Mica, Arizona and into a bigger world of music, dreams and possibilities,” reads the synopsis. “When her mother Ana is hired as the costume designer on a movie, they relocate to L.A., where Stargirl quickly becomes involved with an eclectic assortment of characters. They include aspiring filmmaking brothers Evan and Terrell; Mr. Mitchell, one of Stargirl’s neighbors; and Roxanne Martel, a musician Stargirl admires and encounters on her journey.”
Hollywood Stargirl is produced by Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lee Stollman, and Jordan Horowitz, with Kristin Hahn, Nathan Kelly, and Jerry Spinelli serving as executive producers. In addition to starring, VanderWaal has also written an original song for the film titled, “Figure It Out.”
The first film was a tender and offbeat coming-of-age story based on Jerry Spinelli’s critically-acclaimed, New York Times’ best-selling young adult novel about an unassuming high schooler who finds himself inexplicably drawn to the free-spirited new girl, whose unconventional ways change how they see themselves … and their world.
