Mean Girls went down in history as one of the most iconic teen movies of the 2000s, and its Gen Z remake is just around the corner. Paramount just dropped a fetch new trailer for the adaptation of the Broadway musical based on the iconic Y2K comedy we all know and love.
Just like the original Mean Girls, its musical remake will center on Cady Heron, who must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school. After being transferred to a new school, she quickly climbs to the top of the social food chain and becomes a member of the elite group of popular girls known as “The Plastics”, but it quickly turns out they’re more ruthless than everyone thinks.
The first trailer for this remake promises that “this isn’t your mother’s Mean Girls” and gives us a glimpse at the film’s new cast – Angourie Rice as Cady, Reneé Rapp as Regina, Bebe Wood as Gretchen, Avantika Vandanapu as Karen, Christopher Briney as Aaron, Auliʻi Cravalho as Janis, and Jaquel Spivey as Damian. Tina Fey and Tim Meadows reprise their roles from the original movie, while Jenna Fischer, Busy Philipps, Ashley Park, and Jon Hamm also star.
The new version of Mean Girls draws inspiration from the Broadway musical based on the original movie, and it will be released by Paramount Pictures on January 12, 2024.
