Adapted from the best-selling book of the same name by Jerry Spinelli, the story follows 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 colourful girl named Stargirl.

Grace VanderWaal, who played the titular role in the movie, will return for the sequel along with director Hart, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

They will be joined by actor Elijah Richardson as well as composer-musician Michael Penn, who will write and perform original music for the film. Vander Waal will also write and perform original music for the sequel with Richardson playing the romantic lead.
