In case you didn't get the sense from this underlying message about finding oneself, the trailer is here to say this will be one uplifting story.
Honestly, the movie feels a little cheesy in its execution, but there's the potential for something decent here.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this trailer is seeing Giancarlo Esposito in a mentor role instead of threatening to beat the hell out of someone.
A celebration of individuality, kindness and the power of the human spirit, "Stargirl" is directed by Julia Hart from a screenplay by Kristin Hahn and Julia Hart & Jordan Horowitz based on the novel by Jerry Spinelli.

Starring America's Got Talent victor Grace VanderWaal in her acting debut role as the titular character, the film will be available for streaming on March 13, exclusively on Disney+. Her eccentricities and infectious personality charm Leo and the student body, and she quickly goes from being ignored and ridiculed to accepted and praised, then back again, sending Leo on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
