I Want This Daria Movie With Aubrey Plaza To Happen

Daria_Logo As a child of the 80s and the MTV generation, certain things automatically make me all nostalgic and Daria is one of them. That super sarcastic, no dambs to give, smart chick was everything. Daria was too cool for high school, misunderstood and perfectly fine having no range of emotion.

And I always admired her for having the ability to win any staring contest I imagined she’d be in. Daria Morgendorffer ROCKED my teenage socks.

Wells, the folks of decided to make a fake trailer of a Daria movie they (and so many of us) would like to see. Daria goes back to Lawndale for her 10th year high school reunion and the more things change the more they stay the same.

What makes this trailer so doggone awesome is that they found the MOST PERFECT Daria in Aubrey Plaza.


SEE WHAT I MEAN?!? Perfection.

Fans of the NBC show, Parks and Recreation, know Aubrey as April Ludgate, who is basically what happens if Daria worked in the parks department of a small Indiana town named Pawnee.

Anywho, watch the trailer below and see if you don’t get giddy. I WANT.

OMG PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT! This is everything and I want it to happen IMMEJATELY!

Everyone they used was perfect for the character. Quinn and Jane had me SQUEALING because yes. Right on the money! And HA at Jane having a baby. That’s unexpected. Also, Daria’s high strung dad had me cracking up. And the principal?!? YESSSSSS!!!

I love how Daria opened her closet to find 10 dark green blazers. Win.

Again, I NEEDDDDD this movie to happen. Hey Hollywood. Ya hear that? Give the people what they want, instead of more superhero sequels.

Because I keep watching this trailer and every time, I go:


So did y’all get excited at this trailer too or was it just me? And which one of you will create the petition to make this happen?

    YES! I love Daria and would be thrilled for a movie. Daria doesn’t need to side-eye because she dishes it verbally.

    I could be behind a Kickstarter campaign for a Daria movie. Not so much for a Spike project though.

      Can we start a Kickstarter campaign for them? MTV needs to understand and recognize that we need this movie to happen ASAP!

    Okay, so Luvvie. How about I JUST watched all five seasons TWICE over my summer break (I teach). AND found the movie “Is It Fall Yet” on amazon–and signed up for a free trial so I could watch it as much as possible over 7 days. AND I went and found “Is It College Yet” online for free and watched that too? I love Daria. She read my life before I knew I had a life to read.

    This video made my day!

    (Aubrey’s hair needs to be brown, not black. But yes, YES, YES!!)

    I saw this the other day and my inner 90s child lit up! I loved Daria back in the day! The episodes never get old.

    I, too, would get behind this movie. I really, really would. Whether it is movie form or cartoon form. <3

    All I saw was the title and I immediately did my equivalent of the “YYYAAASSS” gif. So you can imagine my delight when I saw the gif below.

    I squeeed when they announced a new Bridget Jones book
