Um, how exciting is it when some of our favorite stars come together for a movie? That was the case with Dumplin‘ — which starred Cloud 9 hottie Luke Benward and Descendants actress Dove Cameron — for example. Obviously, with such an amazing cast, the results were pretty epic, right? Well, that’s how we know that Netflix’s newest movie, Tall Girl, is going to seriously be amazing. Get ready because the upcoming flick is starring Sabrina Carpenter and Paris Berelc, and we couldn’t be more excited!
According to Netflix, the movie will be about a 6 foot 3 inches, 16-year-old girl named Jodi who has never exactly fit in because of her height. But when a tall exchange student enrolls at her school, she not only learns to embrace her differences, but she also falls in love.
Sabrina, the 19-year-old actress who we all know from Girl Meets World — will be playing Harper, Jodi’s melodramatic, pageant-winning older sister. Paris, on the other hand, will star as Liz, the free-spirited best friend of Jodi’s nemesis. You’ll probably recognize the actress from her role in the Disney XD shows Lab Rats and Mighty Med. So yeah, it’s seriously going to be a Disney reunion on set! Plus, talk about a small world because Sabrina actually dated the 20-year-old’s Lab Rats and Mighty Med co-star Bradley Steven Perry!
And the cast keeps getting better and better because you’re not going to believe who will play Jodi’s best friend. Drum roll please… Griffin Gluck will star as Jack Dunkleman, and, in case you forgot, he was the star of the movie Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life. As for Jodi, newcomer Ava Michelle, was cast for the role.
Although there’s no release date for the movie yet, filming is set to begin this week in New Orleans. With a cast that iconic, we can hardly contain our excitement.
