‘Mean Girls the Musical’ Movie: Everything to Know

Who is starring in the Mean Girls musical movie?

The main cast for the film was announced in December 2022; Senior Year actress Angourie Rice is set to star as Cady Heron and Sex Lives of College Girls star Renée Rapp will reprise her Broadway role as Regina George.

Rachel McAdams wouldn’t mind starring in Mean Girls the Musical — so long as Tina Fey can find a role for her.

Auli’i Cravalho, the voice actress behind 2016’s Moana, will play Janis, and Jaquel Spivey, from Broadway’s A Strange Loop, will play Damian.

Avantika and Bebe Wood are set to play Regina’s Plastics cohorts, Karen and Gretchen, while The Summer I Turned Pretty actor Christopher Briney will play Aaron Samuels.

In February 2023, Fey announced that she and Tim Meadows would step back into their movie roles as Ms. Norbury and Principal Duvall.

Additionally, The Office alumna Jenna Fischer has been cast as Cady’s mother and Busy Philipps has been cast as Mrs. George (who is not a regular mom, but a cool mom). In March 2023, Jon Hamm joined the cast as Coach Carr.

Will any of the Mean Girls movie stars appear in the movie?

In addition to Fey and Meadows reprising their respective roles as Ms. Norbury and Principal Duvall, there have been reports that the original Mean Girls cast, including Lohan, McAdams, Chabert and Seyfried, could appear in the upcoming film.

Seyfried noted that she and her former costars are “100% into” making a cameo. “It’s been a long legacy for Mean Girls, and I think we all kinda just need to hang,” she told the publication.

Rapp, who took over the role of Regina George from Taylor Louderman in the original Broadway production, is set to reprise her role as the head of the Plastics in the upcoming film. Emily in Paris star Ashley Park, who originated the role of Gretchen Wieners in the original Broadway show, is set to make a cameo.

How will the Mean Girls musical movie be different from the original?

The upcoming adaptation is a “cool and very special” version of the well-known story.

“This is a very specific version of the musical that has a really specific place in a niche, culty theater way, that I think expands it to maybe people who aren’t super into theater,” Rapp teased.

The cast began production on March 6, 2023.

The film will seemingly be available on Paramount+ and in theaters as it’s being created by Paramount Pictures. No release date has been announced.
