Uma Thurman joins Stargirl sequel at Disney

The Kill Bill star Uma Thurman has officially boarded the cast of Disney’s sequel to the young adult romantic drama titled Stargirl. The movie directed by Julia Hart was adapted from the best-selling book of the same name by Jerry Spinelli in March 2020.

The story follows Leo, a boy living in Mica, Arizona, who wishes nothing more than an anonymous existence but whose life is turned upside down when he meets and falls for an unusual and colorful girl named Stargirl, played by Grace VanderWaal.

According to reports, the follow-up will see Stargirl’s journey out of Mica and into a bigger world of music, dreams, and possibility. Thurman will play Roxanne Martel, a musician Stargirl not only admires but will also encounter on her journey.

Thurman is currently in production for the series Suspicion, a thriller based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag. The Oscar-nominated actress was most recently seen in The War With Grandpa and Netflix film Chambers.
