Lily Collins, known for her role in “Emily in Paris,” is set to play the beloved tiny doll, Polly Pocket, in the upcoming movie. The news was shared by Collins on her Instagram in 2021, where she expressed her excitement for the project, as she was obsessed with Polly Pockets as a child. Lena Dunham, a talented writer and director, is on board to write and direct the film.
As for the movie’s plot, it will center on a young girl who forms a friendship with a pocket-sized woman, Polly. While exact details are yet to be revealed, the film is said to be smart and playful, aiming to resonate with young women without being condescending.
Dunham shared some insights into the story, hinting at the fun elements of what happens when a tiny person encounters a big world. She wants to stay true to the original ’90s tiny Polly Pocket size, albeit slightly bigger for safety reasons.
However, the movie’s release date remains uncertain due to ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes in Hollywood. The second draft of the script was completed in October 2022, but filming might not start until later this year, depending on the resolution of the strikes.
Fans of Polly Pocket can look forward to a modern and entertaining adaptation of the beloved toy, as talented individuals like Lily Collins and Lena Dunham are involved in bringing this tiny world of magic and friendship to the big screen.
