Behind the Scenes: The Sun Is Also a Star Movie!

Last year, the movie adaptation of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon made us go all heart eyes, and we were ruined for all future YA movies. Until now.

Brace yourselves, book nerds, filming has begun for The Sun Is Also a Star! Try to control your excitement, and check back here for all your BTS movie updates!

This just in:

The first official BTS photo from set has been released, and just everything is happening to our emotions.

Movie Info:

The movie stars MEGA HOTTIES Yara Shahidi from Black-ish as Natasha and Charles Melton from Riverdale as Daniel. It's not even fair how good looking they are.

The Sun Is Also a Star is due in theaters May 17, 2019, and somehow they expect us to keep our composure until then.

Quotes from Amazingly Talented, Important People:

Director Ry-Russo Young (who also directed the movie adaptation of Before I Fall, so she knows a thing or two about YA) said, "I'm delighted to be working with Yara and Charles on this heartfelt love story, which is both timeless and timely. Nicola Yoon has given us a beautiful story to tell and we all couldn't be more excited to make the streets of New York City, where I grew up not that long ago, our stage for the next few weeks. I fell in love with these characters and I know Yara and Charles will bring them alive and make this movie their own. I can't wait to see what they do."

Our official commentary: "YUP!"

Nicola Yoon, author and hero, said, "I'm beyond thrilled this movie is being made! This book is deeply personal to me and Yara and Charles are the perfect choice to bring Natasha and Daniel's story to life on the big screen."

Our official commentary: "YUPPPPPPPPP!"

Read It Before You See It!

The Sun Is Also a Star

The Sun Is Also a Star

By Nicola Yoon

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
