The film, based on the 2018 Broadway musical adaptation of the 2004 film, stars Angourie Rice as Cady Heron, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis ‘Imi’ike, Reneé Rapp as Regina George, Jaquel Spivey as Damian Hubbard, Avantika as Karen Shetty, Bebe Wood as Gretchen Wieners, Christopher Briney as Aaron Samuels, Jenna Fischer as Ms. Heron, Busy Philipps as Mrs. George, Ashley Park as Madame Park, Tina Fey as Ms. Norbury, Tim Meadows as Mr. Duvall.
The trailer does a nice job of establishing the cliques of cool kids, outsiders and, of course, the mean girls. What it doesn’t really showcase, for some reason, are the musical numbers, so maybe that’ll come in the next trailer.
Fey wrote both the 2004 movie and the stage musical, returning now as screenwriter and producer for the movie musical. Lorne Michaels is also producing, with Arturo Perez and Samantha Jayne directing. The music is by Jeff Richmond with lyrics from Nell Benjamin.
Mean Girls arrives in theaters on January 12, 2024. As Deadline first reported in September, Paramount had initially intended for the film to premiere on streaming service Paramount+ before opting for a big screen debut.
