This third instalment in the trilogy that saw ‘Trollhunters’ and ‘3Below’ arrive on Netflix brings together the worlds of Aliens, Trolls and yep, you guessed it, Wizards.

Work It

From the same team that brought us ‘The Kissing Booth’ and ‘To All The Boys I Ever Loved’ comes a whole new teen dream movie. In ‘Work It’ Quinn Ackerman doesn’t dance but when a desirable college place recognises her high school as having one of the best dance teams, she has no choice but to learn. Quickly snubbed by the school team that are fast on their way to the ‘Work It’ dance competition, Quinn is left with no choice than to put together her own team. With her best friend she forms a squad of misfits who strive to learn everything, there is to know about dancing whilst simultaneously putting into practice to pull off their best moves in the competition that every dancer is talking about. What could possibly go wrong, huh? ‘Work It’ stars ‘Sabrina Carpenter’, ‘Liza Koshy’, ‘Keiynan Lonsdale’, ‘Drew Ray Tanner’ ‘Michelle Buteau’ and ‘Jordan Fisher’.
