Grace VanderWaal in 'Hollywood Stargirl'


After a little more than two years, Julia Hart's Stargirl is back on June 3 and you can see what she's up to in her sequel, in a just-released trailer below.

Stargirl (played by Grace VanderWaal) became a good-luck charm for her high school football game but also revealed her singing prowess, which inspired another important character to do the same, in Hart's 2020 film named for her. Now, in the sequel titled Hollywood Stargirl, she and her mother (played by Judy Greer) move out of their small town in Arizona to Los Angeles.

"Here's to trying new things," Stargirl says in the trailer.

Stargirl quickly becomes involved with a new, eclectic group of people, including aspiring filmmaking brothers Evan (Elijah Richardson) and Terrell (Tyrel Jackson Williams), neighbor Mr. Mitchell (Judd Hirsch), and musician Roxanne Martel (Uma Thurman). But of course, her inspirational acts of kindness affect her as much as them.

"All I wanted was to dream crazy things and find people crazy enough to dream them with me," Stargirl says. "I got more than that."

The movie also includes an original song titled "Figure It Out," written and performed by VanderWaal, although the trailer includes her singing covers of "Love and Mercy" and "Make Your Own Kind of Music."

Hart and Jordon Horowitz wrote the script, based on Jerry Spinelli's book centering the same character, Stargirl. Hart also returns as director. Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lee Stollman, and Horowitz produce, with Kristin Hahn, Nathan Kelly, and Spinelli serving as executive producers. 

The first film received a 61 Metascore; the sequel review embargo has not yet lifted so the score has not yet been created.

Hollywood Stargirl will stream on Disney+ on June 3.
