Let’s go to the movies! What’s hitting the theaters this summer?
Disney is celebrating the end of the school year and the splash of summer with a new musical adventure, set during summer break, called ‘Hollywood StarGirl.‘ (Psst! It’s a sequel to the 2020 film ‘Stargirl‘!)
Stargirl wants to put down roots but getting her free-spirited mom to stay planted is often difficult.
When her mom promises that Stargirl can finish her senior year in California, it’s a deal, and Los Angeles is the city where lots of deals are done.
The young singer takes a chance at an open mic night.
Luckily, her new neighbors are looking to make a deal of their own. They want to make a movie and they want her to be in it.
It’s a heartwarming and fun movie where Grace VanderWaal reprises her role as Stargirl from the 2020 film. Judy Greer stars as her free-spirited mother, and Tyrel Jackson Williams and Elijah Richardson are the hopeful filmmakers.
We even get an Uma Thurman appearance, who plays a washed-out singer idolized by StarGirl.
This is a sweet, family film with nice lines about friendship and making your own kind of music.
You can stream ‘Hollywood Stargirl‘ today on Disney+.
