For a lot of people the big story about The Summer I Turned Pretty trailer, has been that Taylor Swift dropping This Love (Taylor’s Version) in the teaser. And hey, I am a die hard T-Swift fan, but for me, it’s so much more than just this song.
I’ve waited years for The Summer I Turned Pretty to be adapted. The series has gotten me through some of the darkest times in my life. It taught me about the magic of summer, of growing up, and about the meaning of friendship.
The Summer I Turned Pretty series is one of the best contemporary series of our time. Everything about the books was magic.
And judging by this teaser, its magic is captured and brought to the screen.
The series is about summers. Belly is used to spending the summer at Cousin’s Beach, with her family and The Fisher’s. It’s what she’s looked forward to every single year. She gets to see her longtime crush, Conrad and his brother Jeremiah. But this summer, everything changes, as relationships evolve. It’s first loves and first heartbreak. It is the summer that everything changed for them all.
It’s the summer that defines Belly and changes everything.
There is something about this series that reminds you about what it’s like to have that summer. Those moments that change everything. Those moments that you can look back on and feel like they just happened.
Fans have long asked writer Jenny Han to have Taylor Swift’s music in the series. And Han delivered and delivered big time. This Love (Taylor’s Version) is in the teaser and Taylor posted that the song in its entirety will be available tonight.
