‘Judy Blume Forever’ Trailer Reveals the Coming-of-Age Story Behind the ‘Fearless’ Author

Amazon Prime Video has released the first full trailer for Judy Blume foreverthe upcoming streaming documentary that traces the story of one of the publishing house’s most current and timeless authors.

Directed by Davina Pardo and Leah Wolchok, the film chronicles the author’s decades-long journey to become one of the most beloved — and banned — writers in publishing. The 90-plus minute documentary begins with her childhood as an “anxious, imaginative child” and explores how family inspirations and an increasing radical honesty defined the woman who helped generations grapple with their own adulthood, including experiences around puberty, sex and identity. .

“My daughter said, ‘Mom, couldn’t you write a book about teens falling in love and doing it and no one has to die?'” Blume recalled at the beginning of the two-minute trailer. “And I thought: yes!”

Through a combination of archive footage and several sitdowns with Blume — some of which see her long-standing correspondence with fans — the Judy Blume forever trailer teases the signature wit and sensibility of one of the American publishing company’s best-known names. Meanwhile, additional interviews with Molly Ringwald, Lena Dunham, Anna Konkle, Samantha Bee, and the other famous women — and men — she inspired help explain how Blume became a cultural focal point and a safe place for young adolescents.

“I don’t think Judy Blume wrote her books to be timeless,” says Jason Reynolds in the trailer about the author’s great impact on readers. “I think she wrote her books to be topical, and they were so topical that they became timeless.”

Judy Blume Forever is produced by Imagine Documentaries, with Pardo, Wolchok, Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes and Marcella Steingart also producing. The film is executive produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Meredith Kaulfers.

Judy Blume Forever begins streaming on Prime Video on April 21.
