Mean Girls has released its first full trailer for the new musical movie, set for release in January 2024.


While the movie will follow the same plot as the 2004 original, it'll include the songs from the hit Broadway musical of the same name.

The musical opened on Broadway in 2018 before playing its final performance in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The movie musical features Reneé Rapp (The Sex Lives of College Girls) as queen bee Regina George, after having played the role during its Broadway run.

Elsewhere in the cast is Christopher Briney (The Summer I Turned Pretty) as Aaron Samuels, Auli’i Cravalho (Moana, Crush) as Janis and Angourie Rice (Honor Society) as Cady Heron.

The trailer for the movie musical sees some of the original movie's iconic scenes recreated, including the Jingle Bell Rock performance and Cady's spooky Halloween costume. And, of course, it wouldn't be Mean Girls if it didn't feature the school's meltdown following the leak of Regina's Burn Book.

Ashley Park (Emily in Paris), who originated the role of Gretchen Wieners on Broadway, also features in the trailer as Cady's languages teacher.

Tina Fey and Tim Meadows will be reprising their roles as Ms Norbury and Mr Duvall respectively.

Some of the songs from the musical that will feature in the movie, as teased in the trailer, include World Burn, Sexy and Meet The Plastics.
