Many of us in the Body Positivity community are familiar with the dance company, Pretty Big Movement, who made headlines when they appeared on America's Got Talent back in 2015.
Looks like they're getting the full Hollywood treatment as Warner Bros. and HBO Max hired Queen of the South co-producer and Queen Sugar producer Tina Mabry to direct and co-write Pretty Big.
According to Deadline, Pretty Big is based on the true life story of Akira Armstrong and the origin of her Pretty Big Movement dance company. In the movie, a young plus-sized woman takes matters into her own hands when she keeps getting rejected from dance companies, despite her obvious talent. When she starts her own company for bodies of all shapes, sizes, and colors, she sets out to win a prestigious competition and prove to the dance community that anyone can dance at an elite level.
Let us know in the comments if you're excited to see this story on screen.
