    Mean Girls: The Musical: The Movie

    We're all aware of the cinematic masterpiece Mean Girls, right?

    If you're not, first of all who even are you? Second, it brought us the ever-iconic "fetch," "grool," and "you go, Glen Coco!"

    And we're all aware of the super fun and very good musical based off Mean Girls, yes?

    CBS

    If you haven't already, go listen to the soundtrack. It's straight 🔥🔥🔥.

    She said in a statement, "I’m very excited to bring ‘Mean Girls’ back to the big screen...It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences."
