Life Lessons From Trailers: ‘Stargirl’ Edition

We’re trash for Disney + and we make no excuses for it. The truth is – streaming services are the things in life that we never knew we needed.

However now that we have them, we’re not ever willing to let them go. Sorry Spectrum, cable is going to be cut.

The trailer for Stargirl – Disney+’s original movie was released this week and we’re all about it. If you haven’t heard about it, the official description is below –

Leo Borlock (Graham Verchere) is an average student at Mica High School. He gets decent grades, is a member of the school’s marching band and has always been content flying under the radar. But all that changes when he meets Stargirl Caraway (Grace VanderWaal), a confident and colorful new student with a penchant for the ukulele, who stands out in a crowd. She is kind, finds magic in the mundane and touches the lives of others with the simplest of gestures. Her eccentricities and infectious personality charm Leo and the student body, and she quickly goes from being ignored and ridiculed to accepted and praised, then back again, sending Leo on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. 

Let’s break down the greatness of the lessons we can learn from the trailer!

Sometimes We’re Afraid To Be Ourselves

To be honest, I couldn’t be a kid nowadays. It would break me in so many ways. Growing up was hard enough back in the day, but seeing what kids go through now a days is really hard. If you’re a little different, if you aren’t like everyone else, you will get called out.

And so you loose who you are because it’s too hard.

What I wish I knew as a kid was that the uniqueness that we all have is what is important. Those are the things that make us able to make an impression and change in the world. Who we are and being true to who we are isn’t easy, but who you are is important.

Some People Make An Impression On Our Hearts

Standing out isn’t an easy thing. Marching to the beat of your own drum, finding the beauty within ourselves, not letting anyone diminish your light – it’s not an easy thing.

But it is worth it.

Stargirl is different. Her clothes are what you notice at first, but her soul is what keeps you looking at her. She makes an impression. She reminds you that it’s okay to be you.

And personally, she reminds me it’s okay to be fearless. I think we all need that reminder sometimes. It’s the fearlessness that can make an impression on those around us. It’s the way that we carry ourselves that can make an impression on others hearts.

And sometimes that is just what we need.

The Universe Deserves To Hear You

I think sometimes, we all get lost in the mundane and are so used to holding everything in, that we forget the things that we want to say.

When we are kids, we are developing, but our outlook on life, the way that we see things, the way that we look at things – is important. You’re seeing the world – hopefully – through eyes that aren’t tarnished by pain, hurt, and a life that isn’t full of hope – in a way that no one else can.

You’re living a life that no one else can and the universe deserves to hear all of the things that you need to say.

Scream it, sing it, say it – but make sure that you let it out. You are the best possible you and that my friends – is enough.

Stargirl is based off the Young Adult novel by Jerry Spinelli.
