Fans have gotten one step closer to seeing the Netflix movie adaptation of Nightbooks. The first-look trailer has just been released and Lidya Jewett stars in the Nightbooks trailer. It is definitely a must-see!
According to JustJared.com, the upcoming film is based off of the book of the same name by J.A. White.
Want to know what to expect from the film? Well, below is a brief synopsis.
Alex, portrayed by Winslow Fegley, is a creative boy with a strong passion for writing scary stories. But when he’s labeled weird and rejected for what he likes, he swears he’ll never write again. That’s when an evil witch, portrayed by Krysten Ritter,, captures him in her magical apartment in New York City and demands that he tell her a new tale every night if he wants to stay alive. Trapped inside with Lenore, the witch’s spiteful cat watching his every move, Alex meets Yasmin, portrayed by Lidya Jewett, another young prisoner who has learned how to survive the witch’s wicked whims. With Yasmin’s help, Alex must learn to embrace what makes him unique — his love for scary stories — and rewrite his own destiny to break them free.
Nightbooks hits Netflix on September 15th. However, it is not going to be the only new project that Jewett has on the popular streaming service.
The talented Good Girls alum is also starting in a Netflix animated movie musical, entitled Vivo!
Per the official Netflix website, Vivo centers around a music-loving kinkajou embarks on the journey of a lifetime to fulfill his destiny and deliver a love song for an old friend.
This film is the latest musical hit from Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda not only stars, and executive produces the film, but, of course also did the music with Alex Lacamoire.
Congratulations, Lydia! We cannot wait to see what you have in store for us all next!
