A brand-new Mean Girls is on the way!The Mean Girls trailer, a reimagining of Mark Waters’ beloved 2004 adolescent comedy, was released by Paramount Pictures. There will be a cast of fresh stars with the return of well-known personalities. That is, nearly.
The story begins with a girl cursing Cady, the new student at her high school, after running into her. “Hey, PG-13,” cautions Tina Fey, who is reprising her role as math instructor Sharon Norbury. However, as stated in the trailer’s following frame, “It’s not your mother’s Mean Girls.”
The narrative of the first Mean Girls is followed in the official synopsis of the new film, says, “From the comedic mind of Tina Fey comes a new twist on the modern classic, Mean Girls. New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called ‘The Plastics,’ ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.”
Given that she wrote both of the films, Tina Fey serves as their common author. The Queen Bees and Wannabes, written by Rosalind Wiseman in 2002, served as the basis for the 2004 movie. The cast included Amanda Seyfried as Karen, Lacey Chabert as Gretchen, Lindsay Lohan as Cady, and Rachel McAdamas as Regina. Amanda, Lacey, and Lindsay recently got back together to film a Mean Girls-inspired ad.
On January 12, 2024, the newest Mean Girls film is scheduled to open in theaters.
