A graphic circulating on social media implies that a Mean Girls reunion movie may be in the works. Is this true or false?
The graphic is real, but there is no movie planned.
The two-panel graphic shows the four lead actresses from the 2004 movie Mean Girls. On the left is a movie poster showing the cast in 2004, while the right side recreates the original movie poster, showing how the actresses appear in 2014, and titled “Mean Girls: The Reunions.” The graphic also includes the caption “Watch your back again!”
The graphic above has led some internet fans to believe a Mean Girls reunion movie may be forthcoming. The graphic, however, is not a poster for a reunion movie, but is a promotional graphic for an interview with the original cast for a “reunions” issue of Entertainment Weekly. This issue brought back together casts of popular movies to discuss their iconic roles. Eight casts were re-assembled including Ghost Busters and Napolean Dynamite.
In the issue, dated November 14, 2014, each of the Mean Girls stars were asked about the possibility of filming a reunion movie. While star Lindsay Lohan said she thought, “it would be really cool,” co-star Amanda Seyfried felt that “you can’t f___ with that.”
Mean Girls 2
Fans of the original movie will remember that in 2011, a sequel to Mean Girls was released. Mean Girls 2 was unable to duplicate the box office success and cult following as the original film, and did not feature the same cast members.
The graphic circulating which appears to show a Mean Girls reunion movie is actually a promotional graphic for an interview with the cast in a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly. While some cast members have said they would be open to the idea of a reunion movie, there are no plans in place as of this writing.
