New DUMPLIN’ Movie Tie-In Cover Revealed

A release date has been revealed for Netflix’s DUMPLIN’, starring Danielle Macdonald and Jennifer Aniston. 

The movie adaptation of Julie Murphy’s Dumplin’ is coming soon to Netflix, and with that, we have a new movie tie-in cover of the popular novel.

Dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom, Willowdean has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American-beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does.

Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

Despite celebrity Jennifer Aniston playing the part of Dumplin’s mother, the cover features Macdonald as Willowdean, and appropriately so, considering the story is more about Willowdean than her mother.

The movie won’t be released on Netflix until December 7th, so there’s still time to grab your copy of the tie-in and read it before seeing it.
