Few years back, a grandma in Arizona made the mistake of inviting the wrong person to her Thanksgiving meal. The gesture became a holiday tradition, and it went popular on social media immediately. This inspirational narrative is now being turned into a liveaction feature film by Netflix.

The Thanksgiving Text tells the tale of Wanda Dench, who thought she was texting her grandson to see whether he was still coming to her house for Thanksgiving dinner. Dench had sent the text to Jamal Hinton, a high school senior at the time, instead of the correct number. Hinton declined the offer but has since attended Dench’s Thanksgiving feast every year.

Hinton was invited to dinner at 3 p.m. in their first exchange. Dench answered, “Your granny,” when asked who had sent the SMS. After sharing images of themselves, the two swiftly recognised their error. “Of course you can,” Dench said when Hinton inquired if he could still receive a meal for Thanksgiving. That’s what grandmothers do feed the whole family.” Since then Hinton has had dinner with Dench.

Jamal Hinton shared the news on social media. “I am ecstatic to reveal our new Netflix relationship. We are grateful to each and every one of you for your love and support over the previous six years. He commented, “We can’t wait to convey our tale on the big screen! The script was written by Abdul Williams, who wrote the script for Salt-N-Pepa and The Bobby Brown Story. State Street Pictures’ Robert Teitel and George Tillman, Jr., who produce Men of Honor, will serve as producers.

Netflix has yet to decide on a filmmaker or cast members. “We’re ecstatic to tell our tale to the rest of the world.” We hope it encourages more individuals to attain and develop relationships they would not have made otherwise,” Dench and Hinton said in a statement to Variety. “We are very fortunate to have been brought together by God through a misplaced text message to become a true relationship.”
