The movie pays homage to iconic scenes from Mean Girls while also expanding on the story. Fey said the musical allows them to “have more fun with these characters and this world.”
Director Tina Landau said they focused on being faithful to the core messages of Mean Girls. “It’s still that story of finding your own voice and embracing who you are,” Landau said.
What to Expect Next
Sources say the Mean Girls musical movie will likely spark franchising opportunities. Given Lohan’s enthusiastic participation in the premiere, many speculate she could reprise her Cady Heron role in a sequel movie.
Others wonder if the movie’s success could lead to Mean Girls joining other Broadway adaptations like Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen on the big screen.
While plans for future Mean Girls projects remain unclear, Monday’s premiere indicates there is still strong interest in reimagining and expanding this pop culture phenomenon.
Potential future Mean Girls projects:
- Sequel movie with Lindsay Lohan

- Another stage production (touring show, international productions)
No matter what’s next, the Mean Girls legacy remains fetch as ever. As Lohan told reporters, “This story and these characters still resonate because we all have a little bit of a mean girl inside us.”
