A plus-sized teenage girl (played by "Patti Cakes" star Danielle Macdonald) unintentionally sparks a body-image revolution when she signs up for a local beauty contest run by her ex-beauty queen mother (played by Jennifer Aniston).

Check out the official trailer for "Dumplin'," a new Netflix comedy based on the best-selling novel of the same name by author Julie Murphy.

The film -- directed by Anne Fletcher (27 Dresses, The Proposal) and executive produced by and co-stars Aniston -- casts Macdonald as a free-spirited, heavy-set Texas teenager nicknamed 'Dumplin' who musters up the courage to enter her mother's prestigious beauty pageant -- and, in doing so, she inspires other nonconformist girls to follow suit.

Featuring new music from country music superstar Dolly Parton, the Netflix film also stars Odeya Rush (Lady Bird), Maddie Baillio (Hairspray Live!), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Hell Fest), Dove Cameron (Disney's Liv and Maddie), and Luke Benward (Life of the Party) with Harold Perrineau (TV's Lost) as a local drag queen who helps Dumplin and her friends get in touch with their inner diva.

Written for the screen by Kristin Hahn, "Dumplin" is being released simultaneously in select theaters and on Netflix beginning December 7th.

synopsis:
DUMPLIN' follows an outspoken plus-sized teenage girl named Willowdean (Danielle Macdonald), who's known as Will to her friends and Dumplin' to her mother (Jennifer Aniston), a former beauty queen who now runs the local Miss Teen Blue Bonnet pageant.
