HOW MARSAI MARTIN GIVES YOU A LITTLE #BLACKGIRLMAGIC IN LITTLE MOVIE | Own it 6/25 on Digital, 7/9 on Blu-ray & DVD #LittleMovie Friday 14 June, 2019

If you dont know about the “little” powerhouse of Marsai Martin, who not only starred in LITTLE movie but executive produce the new-age comedy. She is ony 14 years old, which makes her the youngest executive movie producer in the world! LITTLE, which was heavily inspired by the 1988 highly critically acclaimed film BIG. You may know Marsai Martin from ABC’s Blackish, and even though she starred and produce LITTLE she is making BIG moves! LITTLE comes out 6/25 on Digital, 7/9 on Blu-ray & DVD.

LITTLE was praised for allowing Issa Rae and Marsai Martin to rock their natural hair styles and continuing to showcase that #BlackGirlMagic comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and of course, hair types.

Throughout the film when Regina Hall’s character ‘Jordan’ morphs into her 13 year old self (Marsai Martin) you immediately see how confidence she is and while rocking her natural hair. This is so important because I will be honest, when I was in middle school I was getting relaxers. Having curly and natural hair was not something that was done, and straight hair was considered the standard of beauty. I didn’t see my natural curl pattern again until I was in my mid-20s. So for Marsai Martin to make sure her character showed a teen rocking her natural texture with pride was absolutely ground breaking and amazing.

Teens in any era, movie or no more the theme is all about learn and having a self esteem. You start trying to figure out what makes you the person you are, and your hair can shape your entire look. So imagine if you are a young woman of color watching a girl in your age range rocking her hair with confidence. A beautiful fro! The entire movie her hair stood big and bold! She didnt tame it, she didnt braid it, but in or slick it down to look more “managable” or tameable.

You would be surprise at such a young age how girl’s self-esteem can get shot just by their hair texture alone. So once again this was very responsible for Marsai to make sure she represented a young black girl who rocked her natural hair texture with pride. There was not one moment in the film where she reacted to her hair in a negative way. If more young girls can start off young loving their hair and even better, to see young stars in their own age range do it as well, then it will help their self-esteem through their teens and even moreso in their adulthood.

There was a lot of “magic” going on in LITTLE,  I won’t ruin it and say how, but one of the best magic in the film is rocking that Black Girl Magical confidence with her hair as the best fashion accessory! I would highly recommend checking out LITTLE and own it in your home for a “little” magic for yourself!

Marsai Martin as little Jordan Sanders in Little, co-written and directed by Tina Gordon.

LITTLE is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right. Regina Hall (Girls Trip, “Black Monday”) and Marsai Martin (Black-ish) both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation. Issa Rae (“Insecure,” The Hate You Give) plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April. Using heart and humor, LITTLE teaches us to not shy away but to celebrate the greatest and most authentic versions of ourselves.


Filled with laugh-out-loud moments from beginning to end and amusing bonus content, LITTLE makes the perfect movie for a Girls Night In! The film is based on an idea by Marsai Martin, who also serves as an executive producer, alongside Regina Hall, Preston Holmes (Girls TripNight School), and Josh Martin. Little is directed by Tina Gordon (What Men WantDrumline), produced by Will Packer (Girls Trip, Night School), and also stars Justin Hartley (“This Is Us”, A Bad Moms Christmas).
