Rebel Wilson in 'Senior Year'

Netflix

What happens when one of the most popular girls in school awakens after a 20-year coma and returns to claim her prom queen crown? Well, she learns that things are very different for teenagers today, for one thing. See how in a just-released trailer for Senior Year, a new Netflix movie bowing on May 13.

"Madonna is now called Lady Gaga?" she asks her childhood best friend and father (played by Mary Holland and Chris Parnell), holding a copy of Rolling Stone in the trailer, which you can watch below.

In Senior Year, Rebel Wilson plays the adult woman who wakes up after two decades. She was in the coma because of a cheerleading accident, and she doesn't want to just "jump forward" in her life. This causes her to return to high school, where she quickly learns the early-aughts attitude about popularity, fashion, and accessorizing is all so yesterday. And then she also has to master social media.

"Does it get exhausting trying to make everybody like you all the time?" Sam Richardson's character asks her.

Whether it does, or whether she just finds a new tactic to try to become prom queen, she does decide to just be her "real self." But after 20 years asleep, does she know who that woman is?

Senior Year also stars Zoë Chao, Justin Hartley, Angourie Rice, Michael Cimino, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Brandon Scott Jones, Joshua Colley, Jade Bender, Avantika, and Alicia Silverstone. It is directed by Alex Hardcastle and written by Andrew Knauer & Arthur Pielli and Brandon Scott Jones, from a story by Knauer & Pielli. Wilson, along with Todd Garner, Timothy M. Bourne, and Chris Bender produce, while Jeremy Stein and Jake Wagner serve as executive producers.
