Now, Lifetime has greenlighted a TV-remake of the film starring Idina Menzel as CC, according to Deadline. Bette Midler, who originated the role of CC, couldn't contain her excitement and shared her support on Twitter.

The role of Hillary, originated by Barbara Hershey, has yet to be filled for the film, which is slated for release sometime in 2017. Take a teary trip down memory lane with Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings" below (spoilers ahead).
