'The Sun Is Also A Star' Trailer: Yara Shahidi Falls In Love Against Her Family's Pending Deportation In Film Adaptation Of YA Novel

Warner Bros. released the first trailer for The Sun is Also a Star.

The film, which stars Yara Shahidi, hits theaters on May 17, 2019.

Riverdale star Charles Melton, Jake Choi, Camrus Johnson, Gbenga Akinnagbe and Miriam A. Hyman co-star.

The official description reads: College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley meet—and fall for each other—over one magical day amid the fervor and flurry of New York City. Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. But will fate be enough to take these teens from star-crossed to lucky in love? With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family’s deportation as fiercely as she’s fighting her budding feelings for Daniel, who is working just as hard to convince her they are destined to be together. A modern-day story about finding love against all the odds, The Sun Is Also a Star explores whether our lives are determined by fate or the random events of the universe.

Russo-Young is directing from a script by Tracy Oliver, the co-writer of Girls Trip, who is also helming BET's First Wives Club series reboot. She's also executive producing this film.

The film is from Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures.

The Sun Is Also a Star is the second book from Everything, Everything author Nicola Yoon to be developed into a film. That book was developed into a movie directed by Stella Meghie starring Amandla Stenberg.

MGM and Warner Bros. acquired the rights to this novel after Everything, Everything made six times its budget at the box office.
