Get in, losers, the first trailer for the new one Mean Girls The film has just been released – and it is very confusing. The film, which hits theaters in January, is a film version of the 2018 stage musical, which was an adaptation of the 2004 cult film. According to the trailer, it’s also “not your mother’s.” Mean Girls“, which is rude.
The cast is largely comprised of fresh faces from the original film, with the notable exception of Tina Fey, who reprises her role as Ms. Norbury. (Like the original Mean GirlsFey also wrote the screenplay.) Reneé Rapp is now Regina George and Ashley Park plays Gretchen Weiners. Busy Phillips plays the chaotic mother, and there’s also Jon Hamm?
The trailer is an eerie mix of the familiar and the new that left us largely disoriented. It looks like there’s Aaron Samuels, sexy Santa costumes and a burning book. There’s also an Olivia Rodrigo soundtrack, but confusingly no original music from the musical? What – and more importantly, why – is this film? We’re still not sure.
