Growing Up Is A Tall Order Tall Girl 2 On Netflix February 11

Netflix returns to its teen romcom roots with the premiere of Tall Girl 2 premiering February 11th. The sequel to the 2019 film makes the surprising choice to expand its themes from body image, teen anxiety and insecurity. Blake and I screened this movie a couple weeks ago and we loved Tall Girl 2.  We were huge fans of Tall Girl and we were so happy they made a sequel!  I was also honored to be included in a virtual round table that included Angela Kinsey and director Emily Ting.

Tall Girl 2 takes place after Jodi's inspiring speech at the homecoming dance. Jodi (Ava Michelle) is no longer just the "tall girl" - she's popular, confident, has a boyfriend, and just booked the lead role in this year's school musical. But as the pressure of her newfound popularity intensifies, so do her insecurities, and new relationships are formed while old ones are tested. As the world she built starts to crumble around her, Jodi realizes that standing tall was only just the beginning.

The cast is so great and includes Ava Michelle, Griffin Gluck, Sabrina Carpenter, Anjelika Washington, Luke Eisner, Clara Linn Wilsey, Rico Paris, Jan Luis Castellanos, Johanna Liauw, Chris Wlyde with Angela Kinsey and Steve Zahn.

I enjoyed talking to Angela Kinsey and director Emily Ting.  It was so fun to hear about their favorite scenes, advice they would give their younger selves, and the importance of teen anxiety.

Tall Girl 2 is on Netflix February 11th.
