Everything you need to know about the Mean Girls musical film including release date, cast, trailer and more
If you’ve just seen the trailer for Mean Girls, coming out in 2024, you may be confused – here’s everything you need to know.
The first trailer for the Mean Girls musical movie has been released.
Here is everything you need to know about the Mean Girls movie musical, including the cast, release date, trailer and more.
What is the Mean Girls Musical about?
The first thing you need to know about the new Mean Girls film is that it is not a sequel, nor is it a straight remake.
Instead it’s based on the Broadway musical adaptation of the 2004 film, which features tracks such as Apex Predator and I’d Rather Be Me.
Just like the original film, the musical will follow Cady Heron who moves to North Shore High School from Africa. Alongside Janis and Damon, the trio make a plan to infiltrate The Plastics, led by Regina George.
Has the trailer been released?
The first official trailer for the Mean Girls Musical movie was released on November 8.
There has been some confusion, however, as the trailer doesn’t utilise any songs from the Broadway soundtrack, and only hints at those aspects of the film.
Mean Girls musical film cast
There are several fun references to both the musical and the original film throughout the cast list, with the likes of Ashley Park, who originated the role of Gretchen Wieners on Broadway, appearing as a French teacher in the trailer.
We won’t be seeing the return of Lindsay Lohan or Rachel McAdams, however Tina Fey and Tim Meadows are both set to reprise their roles.
