Screener Squad: Stargirl

Stargirl Movie Review


No, this is not the CW show. This is a Disney+ adaptation of Jerry Spinelli’s 2000 book Stargirl, which we are sure most of you have never heard of. The story follows Susan “Stargirl” Caraway, being played by America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal. One day, she crosses paths with a young boy named Leo (Graham Verchere), who lost his father a short while ago and is having a hard time in high school. So Stargirl makes it her goal to insert herself into his life and the lives of their friends to make positive change. Justin sat in as Max and Paloma told a tale about their viewing experience. Is this a worthy addition for the Disney+ catalogue? Listen to find out.
