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 news gets even better: an original soundtrack featuring six new songs from Siwa and others is set to release on Friday, Aug. 27.
The J Team is directed by Emmy® 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.
Stream The J Team starting Friday, Sept. 3, exclusively on Paramount+.
