Star, the new grown-up section on Disney+, launches next week in the UK and a new trailer gives us a first look at one of its original series: Love, Victor.
The spin-off from Love, Simon is created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the writers of the original 2018 movie, which starred Nick Robinson stars as a closeted gay teen.
“A groundbreaking, significant and charming high school rom-com” we wrote in our review of the film.
Love, Victor follows Victor Salazar, a teen from a half Puerto Rican, half Colombian-American family living in Atlanta. A new student at Creekwood High School, he has to adjust to a new city while also navigate his own journey of self-discovery, from challenges at home to his sexual orientation. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.
Michael Cimino stars as Victor, alongside George Sear, Rachel Hilson, Bebe Wood, Anthony Turpel, Isabella Ferreira, Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Mason Gooding and Mateo Fernandez. Robinson produces and narrates the series.
The 10-episode series premiered in June last year on Hulu and now has found a UK home on Star on Disney+. Episodes 1 and 2 will launch on 23rd February, with the remaining 7 episodes then arriving weekly on Fridays. For a full guide to what’s available on Star on Disney+ at launch, click here.
