Reneé Rapp is also returning to her Broadway role of Regina George!

This is going to be so fetch!!!

The musical version of Mean Girls is coming to the silver screen! Paramount has just announced a new movie version of the Broadway adaptation of the popular 2004 teen comedy Mean Girls, which will debut on Paramount+.

The new musical movie will star Honor Society's Angourie Rice as new student Cady Heron, with The Sex Lives of College Girls star Renee Rapp reprising her Broadway role as queen of the mean girls Regina George. Auli'i Cravalho and Jaquel Spivey round out the main cast.

Cravalho will be taking on the role of Janis Ian, the sardonic and revenge-driven student who befriends Cady and leads her on her mission against Regina. In the movie, Janis hated Regina for starting a rumor that she was a lesbian, and now, she's being played by the bisexual Cravalho.

Rapp, who plays Regina, is also queer in real life, so the energy between the two should be palpable!

Cravalho first became famous for voicing Disney heroine Moana. Since then, she's starred in the queer teen rom-com Crush and the new teen ghost comedy Darby and the Dead.

Cady's other best friend Damien, who is famously "too gay to function," will be played by A Strange Loop breakout Jaquel Spivey. This is an incredible cast and we can't wait to see Cravalho and Spivey singing "Revenge Party!"

Lorne Michaels, who produced the original, is also producing this film. The screenplay will be written by Tina Fey, who wrote the original film and the book for the Broadway show. Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr. are directing.

So far, we don't know who will be playing Karen, Gretchen Wieners, or Aaron Samuels, but we'll be desperately waiting for those announcements.
