Star, the beloved television series created by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy, has been off the air for over two years now. Although fans were heartbroken when Fox decided to cancel the show after its third season, rumors have been circulating that the show may be turned into a movie.
What is Star
For those who may not be familiar with the series, Star follows three talented singers as they navigate the cutthroat music industry in Atlanta. The show features an all-star cast including Queen Latifah, Brandy Norwood, and Jude Demorest.
Why a Movie
The news of a possible Star movie has left fans excited and curious about what’s to come. Many are wondering why a movie is being considered instead of continuing the series on television.
One reason for this could be due to the fact that Lee Daniels has been vocal about wanting to wrap up loose ends and give fans closure for the characters they’ve grown attached to over the years. With a movie, Daniels would have more creative control over how he wants to end the story.
What We Know So Far
Although nothing has been officially confirmed yet, there have been some hints dropped that suggest a Star movie could be in the works.
- In March 2021, Jude Demorest (who played the lead role of Star Davis) tweeted “Soon come,” leading fans to speculate that something related to Star was on its way.
- In May 2021, Queen Latifah hinted during an interview with Essence that “there’s definitely hope” for a Star movie.
- In July 2021, Amiyah Scott (who played Cotton Brown) tweeted that she had just finished a “secret project,” leaving fans to wonder if it could be related to Star.
It’s important to note that none of these hints explicitly confirm a Star movie, but they do give fans hope that something may be in the works behind the scenes.
As of now, it’s unclear whether or not a Star movie will actually happen. However, the hints and rumors surrounding the possibility have certainly gotten fans excited. Whether it’s on the big screen or on television, fans are eager to see their favorite characters and storylines come to a satisfying conclusion.
