McKenna Grace is heading to Disney+!

The 14-year-old actress is set to star in the upcoming movie Crater for the streamer, Deadline reveals.

Here’s a synopsis: A coming-of-age story in the vein of Stand By Me, set on a moon colony. After the death of his father, a boy growing up on a lunar mining colony takes a trip to explore a mysterious crater, along with his four best friends, prior to being permanently relocated to another planet.

“The first time I read this script I cried my eyes out, same with the second time… and the third…😂I can’t wait to work on this film and I’m so excited to work with Disney Plus for the 1st time!” McKenna shared on Instagram, along with the news.

McKenna will play one of the best friends, with filming hopefully starting this spring.

Kyle Patrick Alvarez will direct a script by John Griffin. Shawn Levy and Dan Levine will produce through 21 Laps Entertainment.

If you missed it, last fall it was announced that McKenna joined the cast of this popular series in a recurring role!
