Netflix is at it again: their newest original movie, Tall Girl, is set to premiere on September 13. The film, which stars Dance Moms‘ Ava Michelle as the lead character Jodi, is all about coming into your own. Keep reading below for more details on the film, the cast, and see a few photos!
What’s Tall Girl about? Who’s in the cast?
Netflix’s Tall Girl stars former Dance Moms phenom Ava Michelle as Jodi, a 6-foot tall girl who must adjust to the new feelings she has for a foreign exchange student who’s even taller than she is! With the help of her older sister (portrayed by Sabrina Carpenter), and her best friends (Griffin Gluck and Anjelika Washington), she discovers just how important it is to stand tall.
Any other details to know?
The movie was filmed in New Orleans from January to March 2018, and first-time film director Nzingha Stewart really wanted to incorporate the city into the film. She added a homecoming scene into the movie so they could amplify New Orleans’ parade culture. Authentic food was incorporated too, like jambalaya and étouffée (a Cajun shrimp dish).
Coming from a music background, Stewart was also very keen on making sure the soundtrack fit the film nicely. She chose a mix of current, popular hits along with some piano and jazz influenced sounds. We’re excited to see how it all comes together when it hits streaming via Netflix on Friday, September 13!
