Grace VanderWaal To Star in Disney's 'Stargirl' Movie

Grace VanderWaal just booked her first acting project!

According to Deadline, the 14-year-old singer/songwriter will star in Disney’s upcoming Stargirl.

The film, based on Jerry Spinelli‘s book of the same name, centers on Leo Borlock, who follows the unspoken rule at Mica Area High School: don’t stand out–under any circumstances! Then Stargirl arrives at Mica High and everything changes–for Leo and for the entire school.

After 15 years of home schooling, Stargirl bursts into tenth grade in an explosion of color and a clatter of ukulele music, enchanting the Mica student body.

But the delicate scales of popularity suddenly shift, and Stargirl is shunned for everything that makes her different. Somewhere in the midst of Stargirl’s arrival and rise and fall, normal Leo Borlock has tumbled into love with her.

Stargirl is one of the first original films that will go through the company’s new streaming platform.
