If you haven't watched Julie And The Phantoms on Netflix yet, you're definitely missing out. And if you've already binged the entire series in one sitting (like me), then you know what I'm talking about. It's so pure and fun and romantic, it'll remind you of your ~childhood dreams~, teen crushes, and High School Musical

Here's the sitch: Julie (Madison Reyes), a super talented teenager, loses her passion for music after her mom passes away. But then she meets three ghosts from 1995members of a band called Sunset Curvewho died before their time, and together, they help Julie find her voice and she helps them with their unfinished business. Sparks also fly between Julie and songwriter + band leader Luke (Charlie Gillepsie), who somehow reminds us of HSM's Troy Bolton! It's not surprising since the series is directed by Kenny Ortega. BTW, Julie And The Phantoms is actually based on a Brazilian TV series of the same name.
