Tina Fey spilled the beans on why the Mean Girls crew from 2004 didn’t join the epic musical movie reunion. In an interview with The New York Times, the 53-year-old comedy queen revealed that attempts were made to rope in the OG stars, but alas, the universe had other plans.
When probed about the potential Mean Girls sequel featuring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert, Tina replied with a tantalizing, “We’ll never know.” Picture it: the Burn Book meets Broadway – missed opportunities.
Tina, the maestro herself, lamented, “They’re all doing their grown-up stuff, you know? Busy bees buzzing around, and it just didn’t click. But hey, we tried, and in the grand scheme of things, we still share a love bubble.”
Hold onto your pink skirts, though, because a Mean Girls sequel seems about as likely as a mouse hosting a cheese-tasting event. Tina declared, “Sorry, fans, no sequel magic brewing in the cauldron. The stakes are so high in the original story because everyone’s knee-deep in youth drama, where emotions are as colossal as a Costco-sized pack of popcorn.”
She added, “Love is supersized, and friendships are like those jumbo-sized sodas – massive. Now, I love me some middle-aged shenanigans, but translating that into a sequel? I don’t know, it’s like trying to teach a cat to tap dance. Intriguing, but not gonna happen.”
So, Mean Girls aficionados, the dream of a reunion may have drifted away like Regina George’s popularity, but fear not – we’ll always have the Plastics in our hearts, forever fetch and eternally hilarious.
