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).

    I’m not really into this kind of movies or shows but I think would be a good one to most

  • Sundeep says:

    I love such movies. I will definitely going to watch this for sure

  • Blanca says:

    We need so much more of this on tv. Growing up as a Latina, I didn’t have role models. My barbies were all blonde, and there were no latin role models on tv. All I saw were parodies of latinos and what we were. This is a move in the right direction, I hope to see more like this coming out. It is good for the world. Can’t wait to watch it.

  • Heather T says:

    Love when movies, celebrities, and pop culture encourage confidence of our children to rock their natural hair, love the skin they’re born with, and appreciate everyone for who they are!! So important!!

  • Stacie says:

    Wow, that was fast! Seems like movies are coming to video much faster than before. I’m looking forward to this one.

  • I cant believe I never went to see this.. My daughter and i were so looking forward to seeing this movie but I think life got in the way with school wrapping, traveling for work and getting prepared for my stepdaughter coming to town. maybe we can still go. Imma check to see if its still playing.

  • abby hewes says:

    I can’t wait to show my 4 year old this movie. It’s important for me to show her that all kinds of people can act and do whatever they put their minds too (even kids!).

  • Wow that girl is stylish, and what an inspirational role model to girls out there, to be so accomplished at such a young age.

  • I saw an interview with Marsai on the Daily Show and was extremely impressed. It’s not often you see someone so young be so poised and on top of their game.

  • Rosey says:

    When someone says something to a kid it can really mess things up. I agree that showing her with confidence about being real is amazing and awesome.

  • Carissa says:

    I still have not seen this movie! But I can’t wait to watch it! I wanted to go see it in a theatre but I never got around to doing it!

  • I still cannot believe that I haven’t watched this movie as yet. Perhaps it’ll land on Netflix or something for me to watch soon.

  • I haven’t got the chance to watch this movie but the themes you described that are present makes me want to take young girls to go see it! Awesome that she is the youngest producer!

    I can’t believe it’s already out of theaters and coming to video! I wanted to see this in the theaters but the timing didn’t work out. It looks hilarious!

    She is awesome and a great actress. I didn’t get a chance to see this movie yet. However, I may see if its on Amazon.

  • Maria says:

    I saw Little in the movies and I loved it. And I agree with you it’s so important that young girls (and boys) are instilled with confidence at a young age. It will help them handle and survive the tough world as they get older. I didn’t realize it was already out on DVD I feel like it just came out in theaters.

  • Kim says:

    My coworker was asking me about this movie the other day. I’ve had every intention on seeing it, but haven’t yet had the time to.
