Stargirl Caraway is back in Hollywood Stargirl, premiering June 3rd on Disney+. The sequel to the 2020 Disney+ film Stargirl starring Grace VanderWaal and directed by Julia Hart, this film follows Stargirl as she and her mother move to Los Angeles to pursue her dream. Both VanderWaal and Hart are back for the sequel, and joined by Judy Greer, Elijah Richardson, Tyrel Jackson Williams, Judd Hirsch and Uma Thurman.
I am a fan of Hart, who also wrote and directed the criminally underrated Fast Color, and this film looks beautifully shot with a sweet and fun tone. I’m definitely looking forward to it. VanderWaal also performs the original song “Figure It Out,” which she wrote for the film.
