Disney is reportedly working on a new drama/comedy movie called Dumplin, which is based on the upcoming YA novel by author Julie Murphy. The book is set to arrive on September 15, but no word yet on when the movie will release.
Dumplin is about a confident teen who meets a "former jock," and it seems like they are totally into one another. However, the teen begins to doubt herself and her self-confidence, and in turn decides to enter a beauty pageant (just like her former beauty queen mom) in order to show the world that she is confident, beautiful and deserves the crown!
It's unclear if the movie will be a Disney Channel Original Movie, or if it will arrive from Walt Disney Pictures.
We're excited to see who ends up cast in the movie, and of course we can't wait to read the novel when it arrives. What about you? Tell us your initial thoughts on Dumplin in the comments!
