"You're Alex Morgan! I know everything about you. I'm your biggest fan."
In the upcoming family film, Alex & Me, Olympic gold medalist and all-around soccer superstar Alex Morgan makes her big screen debut playing herself -- or a version of herself, magically brought to life off a poster in a young fan's bedroom in order to impart the girl with the determination and self-worth required to make her dreams come true. The movie, from writer-director Eric Champnella, is like Bend It Like Beckham meets Life Size. (Y'know, the one where Tyra Banks' inspirational Barbie doll comes to life.)
"Do you know that I grew up in--" Morgan (who currently plays for the U.S. Women's National Team in real life) asks in the exclusive trailer.
"Diamond Bar," Reagan (played by Nickelodeon's Siena Agudong) interjects. "And your favorite color is pink, your favorite food is Mexican and your favorite song is 'Man in the Mirror' by Michael Jackson!"
Here is the movie's official synopsis:
"Teenager Reagan Willis (Agudong) has one dream -- to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes!"
Alex & Me is available digitally on June 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD on June 19.
