The Plastics Are Back in the First Trailer for ‘Mean Girls’ Movie Musical
Get in, loser, because Mean Girls, the 2000s cult hit that gave us the Plastics, is getting a remake. The first full-length trailer for the much anticipated Mean Girls film musical has just been published by Paramount — now that's fetch.
The film musical, based on the 2004 teen comedy and the 2018 Broadway show, has a slew of famous faces, including Mean Girls creator Tina Fey and actor Tim Meadows, who reprise their roles as Ms. Sharon Norbury and Principal Duval.
This Mean Girls is "not like your mother's," and the Plastics include Renée Rapp as Regina, Avantika as Karen, Bebe Wood as Gretchen, Auli'i Cravalho as Janis, Jaquel Spivey as Damian, and Christopher Briney as heartthrob Aaron Samuels.
The musical version, directed by Arturo Perez Jr. and Samantha Jayne, has everything from the cult original and more. Think Burn Book, pink on Wednesdays, wild chicks, and, of course, the notorious Santa dance.
Busy Phillipps as Mrs George (a cool mom, not an ordinary mom), Jon Hamm as Coach Carr offering a class on safe sex, and The Office alumni Jenna Fischer as Cady's mother round out the star-studded roster.
Could the Original Plastics return? Mean Girls stars Rachel McAdams, Lindsay Lohan, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried all eager to return. In February, Seyfried told Entertainment Tonight that she and her former co-stars are "100% into" making a cameo.
