Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation.

Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line. Little is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right. 

Little is directed by Tina Gordon (writer, Drumline) with a story by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip) and a screenplay by Oliver and Gordon, based on an idea by teen actress Martin. The film is produced by Will Packer, blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, Night School and the Ride Along franchise, and his producing partner James Lopez and by Kenya Barris (Girls Trip, Black-ish). Executive producers are Preston Holmes (Night School), Hall, Marsai Martin and Josh Martin.

Filmed in Atlanta, GA, the Little production team implemented a sustainability program to reduce their environmental impacts throughout filming. Starting in the office, the majority of paper purchased was tree-free paper made from sugarcane waste fiber, and recycling stations were set up throughout the workspaces.

Little also implemented many best practices to reduce the amount of fuel they used during filming. They rented multiple hybrid passenger vehicles, used energy efficient LED lighting to reduce power needs, and when they were at their main locations such as the school and condo, they made efforts to use grid power in replacement of generators. Additionally, the production rented seven hybrid solar-powered cast trailers that were used throughout production.

To give back to the community in which they were filming, as well as reduce the waste going into landfill, the Little production team donated 780 lbs. of excess food, equaling 650 meals to those in need. Lumber and building materials were donated to the non-profits Lifecycle Building Center and Habitat for Humanity, and the props department donated bicycles to a local thrift store. These practices and more have qualified Little to receive a 2019 EMA Green Seal.
