Yara Shahidi Drops ‘The Sun Is Also a Star’ Trailer


The ‘Grown-ish’ actress shares the trailer for an upcoming movie with ‘Riverdale’ star Charles Melton.

Romance is making a comeback. Yara Shahidi shared the trailer and poster for her upcoming movie, The Sun Is Also a Star, and it looks amazing.

“Love is a universe all of its own…thrilled to share the new poster for #TheSunIsAlsoAStar…Honored to be on this journey,” Yara expressed on her Instagram captions.

The Sun is Also a Star is the film adaptation of the YA bestseller by Nicola Yoon.


Daniel Bae (Charles Melton) is a poet who is taking a challenge to convince Natasha (Yara Shahidi) that love is real and it still exists because Natasha does not believe in love. Daniel takes it upon himself to get Natasha to fall in love with him in 24 hours.

In an interview with People Magazine, Yara explains the significance of this love story.

“We’ve witnessed on a regular basis that there has never been a moment in which people of immigrant families have had the peace of mind that where they’re going they’re able to call home. And because of that, it was really important that this storyline was made so serious and taken as seriously as the love story itself. It is not peripheral to the storyline.”
