NEW YORK - Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, today revealed the official trailer for THE J TEAM, a new live-action musical starring and executive produced by pop star and social media sensation JoJo Siwa.

THE J TEAM is a 90-minute feature-length film that follows a young girl named JoJo (Siwa) whose life is turned upside down when her beloved dance coach, Val (Soltis), decides to retire and is replaced by a sparkle-hating instructor named Poppy (Campbell-Martin). Wanting to stay in the running for an upcoming dance competition, JoJo and her best friends, The Rubies (Jones, Romero), must try their hardest to abide by Poppy's new, harsh rules. Realizing she cannot hide her sparkle or bow anymore, JoJo is kicked out of her dance troupe and must rediscover what dancing means to her.
THE J TEAM is directed by Emmy(R) Award winner Michael Lembeck ("The Santa Clause 2," "Tooth Fairy"), written by Eydie Faye ("Fuller House") and produced by Ron French ("Five Star Christmas"). Don Dunn ("To All The Boys I've Loved Before") is executive producer.
