The Sun is Also a Star: The Book & Film
We’re huge fans of The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon so we were thrilled when we heard it was being made into a movie. Sherin and Sam got to see The Sun is Also a Star at a special preview screening in Toronto—hear their spoiler-free preview and learn more about the story. Catch The Sun is Also a Star in theaters on Friday!
Q&A with Yara Shahidi & Charles Melton
After the screening, the film’s lovely stars Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton held a Q&A hosted by TV personality Melissa Grelo. They talked all about the movie, their chemistry, and what it was like adapting such a beloved story. The audience got to ask some questions too! Prepare to swoon and applaud (and try not to get too jealous of the new couple #Cham).
