The New Netflix Dance Movie “Work It” Will Star Jordan Fisher

We've had our fingers crossed about the Netflix film Work It ever since we first got wind of the project. Produced by Alicia Keys, the movie—which follows a teen whose admission to her dream college hinges on her performance at a dance competition—sounded like it could be positively dancetastic.

And friends, looks like it will be. Because Netflix just announced that the cast will include several great dancers, including your boyfriend Jordan Fisher.


Fisher—Disney Channel alum, Broadway standout, live television musical phenom, pop star, winner of "Dancing with the Stars" Season 25, and all-around delight—will be getting down alongside Sabrina Carpenter (who'll play the lead), Liza Koshy, Drew Ray Tanner, Michelle Buteau, and Keiynan Lonsdale (of "Dance Academy" fame). Aakomon Jones, the genius behind the moves of Pitch Perfect and Black Panther, will choreograph.

Here's the announcement video:
