Step Sisters is a 2018 dance comedy film directed by Charles Stone III.[3] It stars Megalyn Echikunwoke as a black sorority girl who agrees to teach the art of Greek stepping to a house of party-obsessed white sorority sisters.[4]

Plot[edit]

Jamilah is an ambitious college student. She’s president of her black sorority, captain of the highly regarded step team, a trusted liaison to the college dean, and has plans to attend Harvard Law School.

But after her school's reputation is tarnished by a band of hard-partying white sorority girls, Jamilah is forcibly enlisted to help set things right. She's tasked with not only teaching these girls how to step, but also helping them to win a competitive dance competition.[5]

Cast[edit]

Release[edit]

The film's main roles were cast in May 2016.[5] The film was scheduled to be released in March 31, 2017 by Broad Green Pictures.[6][7] However, it was ultimately pulled from the schedule.[8] Shortly after, Netflix acquired distribution rights to the film, following Broad Green dropping the film,[9] and it was released by Netflix on January 19, 2018.[10]
