Is the Mean Girls movie a musical?
Many fans felt it was unnecessary to remake the original movie - but they clearly didn't realise the new film is not a remake, it's actually a film adaption of the Mean Girls Musical which opened on Broadway in April 2018.
Tina adapted the original film into the hit musical, and was heavily involved in bringing it back to the screen.
"We really started by going back to the first movie to remind ourselves why it was such a big hit and why the different relationships between the characters worked," she says.
"That’s when you realise that Mean Girls is about grievances and the mistakes we all make when we’re that age, and maybe this age too! Bringing the story forward, it was really about working out which of those elements from the film and from the Broadway show to keep, and what to change to keep it feeling new, fun, but also meaningful and surprising."
Who is in the Mean Girls Musical Film?
Not only did Tina produce and write the film but she also stars as Ms. Norbury.
Australia's very own Angourie Rice is starring as Cady Heron, Sex Lives of College Girls' Reneé Rapp will be stepping into the iconic role of Regina George (which she has previously played in the Broadway show) and The Summer I Turned Pretty's Conrad, we mean Christopher Briney will be playing Aaron Samuels. Auli’i Cravalho (Moana) stars as Janice.
The cast also includes Jaquel Spivey, Avantika, Bebe Wood, Jenna Fischer, Busy Philipps, Ashley Park and Tim Meadows.
When is Mean Girls coming out?
Mean Girls premiered exclusively in cinemas on January 11, 2024.
