Dench texted back, “Of course you can. That’s what grandma’s do … Feed everyone.”Realising the invitation was genuine, Hinton decided to go to Dench’s home, which was a 25-minute drive from his home south of Phoenix, Arizona. He joined Dench’s Thanksgiving meal with her family, something he’s done every year since.

The Thanksgiving ritual has since charmed everyone as the pair regularly update the internet with their genuine friendship. After sharing the text conversation online back in 2016, Hinton has made it a habit to take to social media each year with updates.

Now, Netflix has addedThe Thanksgiving Textto its growing roster of live-action family films and we can’t wait. While Netflix has not yet announced a director or cast details, Abdul Williams (Salt-N-PepaThe Bobby Brown Story) is writing the screenplay.

Speaking about the movie announcement, the pair said in a joint statement provided by Netflix: “We are excited to share our story with the world.“We hope it inspires more people to reach out and make connections that they wouldn’t ordinarily make. We are so blessed to find a genuine friendship brought together by God from a mistaken text message.”

Sharing the Netflix news on his Instagram, Hinton wrote: “We thank every single one of you for your love and support in our journey the last 6 years. We can’t wait to tell our story on the big screen!”This year, the pair also treated us to another selfie from their sixth annual Thanksgiving celebration, this time with the invitation extended to Hinton’s girlfriend:
