‘Mean Girls’ Trailer: Movie Based On Musical Coming To Theaters In January

Mean Girls is back, and meaner than ever with a new film and a new group of high schoolers who must face The Plastics or face the Burn Book. The film comes to theaters Jan. 12, 2024.

The film isn’t described as a “reboot,” though the characters have the same names as the characters from the 2001 movie. But there’s more diversity among the cast this time around, reflecting the changing times. As a result, some of the characters’ last names have been changed to reflect their new POC status.

It’s also a film similar to The Color Purple–a film based on a musical based on a film. This Mean Girls is the movie adaptation of the popular Broadway musical adaptation. So this time around, the characters will be relaying their emotions and challenges in song, not just in the Burn Book.

Tina Fey, the creator behind the original film, also makes an appearance in this film as well as serve as producer with Lorne Michaels, who also helped produce the original film. Also coming back to the project is Tim Meadows, who also starred in the original film.

Mean Girls stars Angourie Rice as Cady Heron, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis ‘Imi’ke, Reneé Rapp as Regina George, Jaquel Spivey as Damian Hubbard, Avantika as Karen Shetty, Bebe Wood as Gretchen Wieners, Christopher Briney as Aaron Samuels, Jenna Fischer as Ms. Heron, Busy Philipps as Mrs. George, Ashley Park as Madame Park, Fey as Ms. Norbury and Tim Meadows as Mr. Duvall.

Here’s more about the film:

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.

The film is executive produced by Jeff Richman, Nell Benjamin, Eric Gurian, Erin David and Pamela Thur. Music is by Richman with lyrics by Benjamin. The film is directed by Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr.
