In Netflix’s ‘Senior Year’ Trailer, Rebel Wilson Makes High School Comedy Again

Imagine this. You’re about to turn 40 and you find yourself back in your high school after 20 years, where you’ll be enrolled as a student surrounded by TikTok-obsessed teenagers. This is – amazingly – not the premise of a horror movie, but the upcoming Netflix comedy led by Rebel-Wilson, Final year.

The opening title card of the film’s first trailer, which was released on Monday, says the year is 2002. The boy bands are all punks, revealingly dressed, low-rise jeans. and butterfly clips are the pinnacle of fashion. Life couldn’t be better for Wilson’s Stephanie Conway, a famous cheerleader who played as a teenager. Mare of Easttown actress Angourie Rice, when a stunt cheerleader was ordered to put her in a coma.

Stephanie wakes up in the hospital two decades later, feeling robbed of her perfect senior year with a successful cheerleading season, an attractive boyfriend (sport-wrapped piercings and a bangle, of course). shell neck), and the coveted title of prom queen. She’s basically suffering from massive FOMO for everything she’s missed during her 20-year coma.

“Everybody else has to move on and live their lives, and I have to jump forward?” she asked her father, do Saturday night live Alumni Chris Parnell. “I mean, I just found out there are eight Fast and furious movies.” Naturally, she decided to go back to high school, and the hijinks ensued.

Dressed in her best early days (such as a hot pink tank top, decorated with rhinestones layered over a plaid t-shirt), Stephanie quickly realized that high school School is a bit different now than when she ruled the hall. She simply can’t get over the “everyone is famous” mentality of Gen Z.

“Oh, no, no, no. There are only three ways to become famous,” she told a lunch table full of teenagers. “To be a cheerleader, to work at Abercrombie, or to let the boys go in the back door.” Upon learning that everyone in the cheerleading squad is captain, she commented, “That’s the most horrible thing I’ve ever heard.”

In a press release for the film from earlier this year, Wilson described Final year is an updated combination of two classic high school movies—Never been kissed and Bring it in. In other words, it was our dream movie.

Final year Directed by Alex Hardcastle. It features a supporting cast of hilarious comedians, including Sam Richardson, Zoe Chao, and Mary Holland. Former teen movie queen Alicia Silverstone and heart of the 2000s Justin Hartley also appeared.
