Disney+ has released the official trailer for its upcoming movie “Hollywood Stargirl”, a sequel to the 2020 Disney+ film about free spirit Stargirl Caraway (Grace VanderWaal), a silver-voiced teenager whose simple acts of kindness work magic in the lives of others.
According to the official synopsis, the upcoming film follows Stargirl’s journey out of Mica, Arizona and into a bigger world of music, dreams and possibilities. “When her mother Ana (Judy Greer) 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 (Elijah Richardson) and Terrell (Tyrel Jackson Williams); Mr. Mitchell (Judd Hirsch), one of Stargirl’s neighbors; and Roxanne Martel (Uma Thurman), a musician Stargirl admires and encounters on her journey.
The song used in the trailer is a cover of the pop song “Make Your Own Kind of Music“, which became a Top 40 hit for Cass Elliot in 1969.
Directed by Julia Hart from a script she co-wrote with Jordan Horowitz, based on Jerry Spinelli’s best-selling book Stargirl, the movie features VanderWall performing the original song “Figure It Out”, which she wrote for the film.
Hollywood Stargirl will be available for streaming on Disney+ starting June 3.
