We fell in love with 20th Century Fox’s film Love, Simon last year, and are so excited to share that a series inspired by the original film is coming to Disney+! The series will be set in the same world of the film, and follows new character Victor on his journey of self-discovery: facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. If it’s anything like the story we fell in love with last year, we can’t wait to watch!
Victor will be played by up-and-coming actor Michael Cimino, with the star of the original film Nick Robinson on board as Producer and narrator of the series. Alongside Michael is Ana Ortiz who plays Victor’s loving mother, and James Martinez as Armando, Victor’s father.
Executive Producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger (both whom wrote the original film) explained,
Writing ‘Love, Simon’ was one of the most profound and enjoyable experiences of our careers to date and we are beyond thrilled that we get to revisit this world and tell the story of Victor, a brand new Creekwood student, and his family and friends. We have a phenomenal group of writers with tremendously personal connections to the material crafting our episodes, and have assembled a dream team cast and crew to bring these stories to life, and cannot wait to share what we’re working on with the world.
Love, Simon began its production for Disney+ this month, and we’re already anticipating its arrival.
