Mean Girls: The Musical is hitting the theaters later this month, and Paramount Pictures built up the hype for its release with a fetch new trailer. Regina George and “The Plastics” are back in the new take on the beloved 2000s classic—with a new musical twist!

Based on the Broadway musical inspired by Mark Waters’ iconic teen comedy, the new version puts a modern twist on a story we all know and love. The new student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) must survive the cutthroat world of her new high school after being welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls known as “The Plastics”.

Rice will be joined by Reneé Rapp as Regina George, Bebe Wood as Gretchen, Avantika as Karen, Christopher Briney as Aaron Samuels, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis, and Jaquel Spivey as Damian. Screenwriter Tina Fey and Tim Meadows are the only members of the original cast to return, with Jenna Fischer, Busy Philipps, Jon Hamm, and Ashley Park joining them in supporting roles.

Mean Girls: The Musical was initially only set for a streaming release on Paramount+, but the studio later decided to release it theatrically. The film will hit the theatres on January 12 and is currently projected to gross $27–30 million during its opening weekend.
