WATCH: ‘Mean Girls’ Movie Musical Releases Final Trailer
The 2024 Mean Girls movie musical, based on the Broadway musical of the same name, has just released its final official trailer, offering audiences a glimpse of two musical numbers.
Singer, songwriter, and Broadway actress Reneé Rapp, who first played Regina George in 2019 as a replacement for Taylor Louderman, is reprising her role in the film. We can hear her singing a few lines from the song Meet the Plastics and her new original song with Megan Thee Stallion entitled Not My Fault, the first single released from the film’s official soundtrack.
The film is directed by Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr. The Broadway musical was based on the 2004 comedy film, which starred Rachel McAdams as Regina George and Lindsay Lohan as Cady Heron. Tina Fey wrote the screenplay for both films as well as the book for the Broadway musical. Composer Jeff Richmond and lyricist Nell Benjamin, who wrote the songs for the stage musical, also returned to rework the songs for the film, with Richmond also composing the film’s score.
It is set to be released by Paramount Pictures in US cinemas on January 12. A release date for the Philippines has yet to be announced.
Mean Girls follows new student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice), who is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics.” The group is ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.
