Trailer lands for Mean Girls movie musical

Fans of the iconic movie “Mean Girls” have been treated to the official trailer of the highly anticipated musical adaptation.

Released by Paramount Pictures, the trailer offers a glimpse into what seems to be a vibrant and dazzling production, complete with catchy tunes, impressive choreography, and all the beloved characters from the original film.

In January 2020, Tina Fey announced plans for a movie directed by Arturo Perez Jr. and Samantha Jayne. The official casting list was unveiled in December 2022.

The film’s musical nature became more evident to viewers when a teaser was featured during Taylor Swift’s concert movie, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.”

While most of the cast in the new “Mean Girls” movie is comprised of fresh faces to the franchise, Fey reprises her role as Ms. Norbury and also takes on the responsibility of writing the screenplay, as she did for the original film.

Reneé Rapp steps into the character of Regina George, and Ashley Park portrays Madame Park, with Busy Phillips taking on the role of the disorganized mother.

The trailer introduces Jon Hamm as Coach Carr, suggesting that the new “Mean Girls” movie may deviate somewhat from the original while still retaining key moments.

These include the iconic “Jingle Bell Rock” dance and the infamous pink “Burn Book,” filled with rumors about North Shore High School students.

The upcoming movie is scheduled to release in theaters January 11, 2024.
