We also see the highly anticipated return of the hot pink Burn Book, Damian and Janis in all their bestie glory, and Cady’s awkwardness towards her crush, Aaron Samuels. Of course, the disastrous “Jingle Bell Rock” performance at the Winter Talent Show and Regina’s unforgettable “Get in, loser” line also make appearances. The only thing missing is the original music from the film, which adds an interesting twist.

This new musical movie iteration will be co-produced by Lorne Michaels and directed by Arturo Perez and Samantha Jayne.

During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Fey teased that the songs in the movie will have a much more contemporary pop sound compared to those in the musical.
