The Mean Girls reboot seems to be too afraid to tell audiences that it’s a musical, but we have been getting some featurettes that have been getting us better looks at the film.
Just in, Paramount has released a new BTS featurette that gives us a look at the choreography for the movie, and we have Kyle Hanagami to thank for it. Check this out:
Probably the only musical dance performance in the original Mean Girls was the Christmas talent show, but as we can see from the featurette, a lot of the movie has been expanded to fill in musical numbers, from Cady’s entrance to the school, to the introduction of Regina George.
Just for context, here’s the original Christmas number from Mean Girls:
When it comes to the musical, we can see that the costumes are definitely more dazzling; and though the number from the original looks pretty simple enough for a bunch of high school girls, it does look like the musical reboot is adding a whole bunch of new, more intricate moves for Regina and the Plastics to pull off. Not to mention, Regina’s mom (played by Busy Phillips) looks a lot more busy holding up all of her influencer gear.
Mean Girls may not have been able to come out this December in time for Christmas, but surely it should bring in some people to theaters this January.
Catch Mean Girls when it comes to cinemas on Jan. 12, 2024.
