“Hollywood Stargirl,” the first sequel to the 2020 Disney+ Original Movie “Stargirl,” officially started production last May. Not much has been revealed about the movie since then but we may be closer to a Disney+ release date announcement.
According to the website for The Hollywood Partnership, Hollywood Blvd. will be closed down on June 1st for the “Hollywood Stargirl” premiere. Since these red carpet premiere events are usually held shortly prior to the series release on Disney+, it’s possible “Hollywood Stargirl” could make its debut on the streamer later that month. Obviously, this is pure speculation as a release date for “Hollywood Stargirl” has not been announced yet by Disney.
The romantic drama which debuted last year, adapted the best-selling book by Jerry Spinelli, and told the story of a boy living in Arizona whose life is turned upside down when he meets and falls in love with a colorful girl named Stargirl (Grace VanderWaal).
The sequel follows Stargirl’s (VanderWaal) journey out of Mica into a bigger world of music, dreams and possibility. Elijah Richardson will play Evan, the romantic lead opposite VanderWaal. Uma Thurman plays a musician by the name of Roxanne Martel, whom Stargirl encounters along her journey and becomes inspired by, and Judy Greer stars as Ana Stargirl’s mother. Judd Hirsch will play Mr. Mitchell, one of Stargirl’s new neighbors while Tyrel Jackson Williams will play Terrell, Evan’s older brother and an aspiring filmmaker.
Julia Hart directs the sequel. Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman of Gotham Group return as producers while Horowitz will produce for Hart & Horowitz’s company Original Headquarters. Hahn and Spinelli are executive producers. Penn will also act as the new project’s executive music producer.
“Stargirl” is available to stream now on Disney+.
