DARBY AND THE DEAD Trailer And Poster Promise A Mix Between THE SIXTH SENSE And Classic High School Comedy

The first trailer and poster have been released for Hulu's Darby and the Dead, and we have a feeling you'll get a kick out of this unique mix between The Sixth Sense and a classic high school comedy...

20th Century Studios has released the first trailer and poster for Darby and the Dead (via SFFGazette.com), a supernatural teen comedy that revolves around a high school student who moonlights as a spiritual messenger.

The movie hits streaming on December 2, exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories. While this is a relatively late first look, we have a feeling this will be a lot of fun. It also features an impressive cast that includes Riele Downs (Henry Danger), Asher Angel (Shazam!), and Auli'i Cravalho (Moana).

After suffering a near-death experience as a young girl, Darby Harper (Downs) gains the ability to see dead people. As a result, she becomes introverted and shut off from her high school peers and prefers to spend time counselling lonely spirits who have unfinished business on earth.

But all that changes when Capri (Cravalho), the Queen Bee of the school’s most exclusive clique, unexpectedly dies in a freak hair straightening accident, resulting in the obvious cancellation of her upcoming "Sweet 17." Capri, however, pleads with Darby from the other side to intervene and convince Capri’s friends to proceed with the party as planned.

In order to appease the wrath of the undead diva, Darby must emerge from her self-imposed exile and reinvent herself — which along the way allows her to find new joy back in the land of the living.

Darby and the Dead also stars Chosen Jacobs, Wayne Knight, with Derek Luke and Tony Danza. The movie is directed by Silas Howard, while the screenplay is by Becca Greene, based on a story by Wenonah Wilms. Producers are Adam Saunders and Eddie Rubin, with Michele Weisler and Mac Hendrickson serving as executive producers. 

As noted, Darby and the Dead is set to be released on December 2, and you can check out the trailer and poster below.
