Please make this “Daria” movie with Aubrey Plaza a reality
CollegeHumor’s Daria: High School Reunion returns to Lawndale to catch up with the class of 2002, 10 years later.
The TV show Daria ran on MTV from 1997 to 2002, and the titular teenage character, Daria Morgendorffer, was the pre-Internet geek girl: smart, sarcastic, forever rocking a blazer and boots. She and her best friend, Jane Lane, side-eyed Lawndale High School’s popular kid, and left us a time capsule of deadpan quotes.
Her monotone delivery and unexcitable nature can be found in many modern TV characters, but her most apparent heir is Parks and Recreation’s April Ludgate, played by Aubrey Plaza. The folks at CollegeHumor agree. The site just debuted a movie trailer for Daria: High School Reunion, starring Plaza as Daria, in which she returns to Lawndale to catch up with the class of 2002, 10 years later.
Alas, it’s just a joke trailer, a teaser of sorts for Plaza’s real new movie, The To-Do List. But still, Internet, we must will this movie into existence. This is an important cultural moment for misanthropes everywhere.
