America’s Got Talent Season 11 winner Grace VanderWaal is proving that she’s a triple threat and more. Not only can she sing, write original songs, and play the ukulele — but she can act too!
The 16-year-old superstar landed the starring role in the Disney film Stargirl based on the YA novel by Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli.
Like Grace, Stargirl (that’s her colorful character’s name) isn’t afraid to be herself and to be heard.
When Grace shared the trailer (above), her fans went crazy. One wrote: “ahhh this is gonna usher in a new wave of manic pixie dream girls for the new decade. i’m here for it.”
Another wrote: “GRACE THIS IS SO ADORABLE AND IT GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS AAAAAA.” And more than one admitted to “crying already”.
Stargirl will be available for streaming on Disney+ on Friday, March 13.
