In recent years, Netflix has made major moves as a go-to place for teen movies – from the To All The Boys films (about to conclude with upcoming threequel Always And Forever), to the likes of All Together Now and Work It, and plenty more. It’s a smart move, considering this generation of teenagers has quite literally grown up with Netflix. The streaming service’s latest teen flick comes from Amy Poehler, who both stars in and directs Moxie – the story of a feminist revolution on an American high school campus that looks like a total blast. Ahead of its arrival in March, Netflix has shared the first trailer, which promises a punky upbeat campus comedy with a riotous streak.

Looks fun, right? Moxie stars Hadley Robinson as Vivian, a 16-year-old who decides to take after her rebellious mum (Poehler) and publish a feminist zine called Moxie, hitting back at the toxic culture and double-standards that are rife in her school – which sparks others into action too. Other familiar faces here include Ike Barinholtz, Marcia Gay Harden and Clark Gregg, while the younger cast also includes Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Josephine Langford (younger sister of Katherine Langford). With a trailer that invokes the likes of Whip It, Booksmart and Mean Girls, here’s hoping Moxie lives up to that promise and joins that lot in the teen movie canon.

Based on Jennifer Mathieu’s novel, Poehler’s adaptation of Moxie is just over a month away, coming to Netflix on 3 March. Long live the revolution.
