The film is a comedy about a teenager named Willowdean Dickson, aka Dumplin’ (Macdonald), the plus-size daughter of a former beauty queen (Aniston). The movie is a different take, and a refreshing one at that, on what it means to be a fat girl in a world where most people are fatphobic.

Willowdean loves who she is, but she’s fed up with outdated beauty standards. Willowdean decides to sign up for the pageant in protest and inspires a group of outcasts to do the same. Together, they work to change the true meaning of pageants and find out more about themselves.

Based on the 2015 young adult novel by Julie Murphy, this heartwarming dramedy has a positive message, says director Anne Fletcher: “It doesn’t matter what you look like, you’re still perfect the way you are.”

Dumplin’ is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses). In addition to Aniston, confirmed cast members include Odeya Rush (Lady Bird), Dove Cameron (Descendants), and Harold Perrineau (Lost). Plus, the soundtrack is filled with feel-good Dolly Parton songs, so you’ll be tapping your feet the whole time. Oh yeah, and the soundtrack will feature original music from Parton.

Based on the trailer and those involved in producing the movie (Aniston is also on board as a producer), Dumplin’ looks like it could be another solid release for Netflix. It seems to stick fairly close to Murphy’s novel while formatting the story for a two-hour film. As a result, it should please both book fans and newcomers alike.

Premiere date and trailer

“Dumplin'” premieres December 7 on Netflix and in select theaters. Also, check out the amazing trailer if you haven’t seen it yet.
