As we like to say around these parts, good morning, Willowdean!
It’s a HUGE day for all fans of the book Dumplin’ (and if you’re not a fan, you clearly just have not read it yet), because the trailer is finally here! We’ve been keeping you updated with all the movie news we’ve gotten, from the perfect first casting all the way to its gorgeous soundtrack. Now, we’re so excited to finally, finally, finally share the official trailer! If anyone needs us on December 7th, you can find us watching this on Netflix on repeat.
Dumplin’ Trailer | Official
Doesn’t it look so freaking good?! Some members of Team Epic Reads have already been lucky enough to have seen it, and we can confirm we were completely blown away, tearing up and rooting for our fave girl gang every step of the way. In case you need a refresher on the story (who’s game for a re-read?), Willowdean Dickson, daughter of former beauty queen Rosie, niece of Dolly Parton’s #1 fan Lucy, and BFF to Ellen, is a self-proclaimed fat girl with quick wit and sky-high confidence.
Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body.
But her self esteem gets shaky when she begins a flirtationship with Private School Bo, so she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any girl does. So, if you couldn’t tell, we love this book.
The star-studded cast includes one Miss Jennifer Aniston, Danielle Macdonald, Odeya Rush, Dove Cameron, Bex Taylor-Klaus, and Maddie Baillio (who plays Millie, of Puddin’ fame, and completely steals the show!)
We laughed, we cried, and we cheered for one very special surprise cameo…
