Disney+ has released the official trailer for its upcoming film Prom Pact starring Peyton Elizabeth Lee and Milo Manheim.
According to Collider, the movie follows Mandy Yang (Lee) and her best friend Ben (Manheim). It’s prom season but Mandy is focused on getting off the Harvard waitlist. She agrees to tutor star athlete Graham Lansing in order to get a recommendation from his father, who is a Senator and Harvard alumn.
Lee also stars in the Disney+ original series Doogie Kameāloha, M.D., a reboot of Doogie Howser, M.D.
Julie Bowen, known for her role on Modern Family, serves as an executive producer on the movie.
“It’s about romance, sure, but it’s also about friendship, ambition and priorities,” Bowen told PEOPLE. “We’ve got Peyton’s intelligence and vulnerability at the center, but then we have Milo as the audience’s ‘nerd’ proxy. The warmth and humor Milo brings to the role as a kid who just wants to be ‘seen’ by his peers before he graduates makes him a relatable character for any teenage boy. This is not a movie about dresses and limos.”
The movie will stream on Disney+ starting March 31.
