Disney+ Original Movie Stargirl To Get a Sequel

Following the success of the release of last years Disney+ Original movie, “Stargirl”, Disney is now starting work on a sequel.


In the first “Stargirl” film, it follows an unassuming high schooler who finds himself inexplicably drawn to the free-spirited new girl, whose unconventional ways change how they see themselves…and their world.


According to THR, Disney is bringing back the creative team including its director Julia Hart and composer-musician Michael Penn, who will write and perform original music for the film, along with Grace VanderWaal, who is returning for the film and will be writing and performing some new original music for the film.

She will be joined by Elijah Richardson, who will be playing the romantic lead in the film, which follows Stargirl’s journey out of Mica, Arizona and into a bigger world of music, dreams and possibility.  Elijah Richardson has previously starred in “When They See Us ” and “New Amsterdam“.

Jordan Horowitz, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman are producing the film.  With Kirsten Hahn (who is adapting the script) and Jerry Spinelli (Stargirl’s creator) as executive producers.

Casting is currently underway for the new Stargirl film, which is the first Disney+ movie to get a sequel.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
