Amandla Stenberg To Star & Co-Write A New Song For 'Dear Evan Hansen' Movie

Amandla Stenberg has joined the Dear Evan Hansen film adaption.

According to The Wrap, the -year-old actor is set to play the role of Alana with an expanded presence, and will also co-write a new song for the movie with duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Amandla‘s role as Alana will have a cheery facade and a social-media-savvy, but it masks her deeper loneliness and isolation.

If you don’t know, Dear Evan Hansen is a story of a high school senior who has severe social anxiety and has trouble connecting with others and making friends.

After the suicide of a classmate, Evan gets caught in a lie that brings him closer to his classmate’s family.

The role was portrayed by Ben Platt, Noah Galvin, and Jordan Fisher in the stage version.

Ben and Noah are now dating. See their latest pic together here!
