When it comes to churning out sweet and relatable teen movies, Hulu has been at the top of its game. Recent raunchy comedies like Plan B, Sex Appeal, and The Binge have proven the streamer is all-in on bringing back the high school comedy, and its next release looks just as exciting. Start planning your next movie night, because Crush will be premiering on Hulu very soon — here’s a first look at what it’s about.
Rowan Blanchard and Auli’i Cravalho star in the sports-themed rom-com, which is being produced by the American High studio. Here’s the official synopsis, per Hulu:
When an aspiring young artist is forced to join her high school track team, she uses it as an opportunity to pursue the girl she’s been harboring a long-time crush on. But she soon finds herself falling for an unexpected teammate and discovers what real love feels like.
According to earlier reporting from Deadline, Blanchard plays the artist, named Paige, while Cravalho plays AJ, a track star who’s always lived in the shadow of her twin sister. Blanchard is best known for starring in Disney Channel’s Boy Meets World sequel series Girl Meets World, and Cravalho rose to prominence as the voice of Moana in Moana.
Crush sounds like the perfect watch for anyone who loves a good teen flick. Here are so more details:
