One thing we have been missing and need – especially after the pandemic – is a Girl’s Trip.
While on Good Morning America, producer Will Packer announced that a sequel to the hit 2017 comedy Girl’s Trip is “underway.”
“Can’t we all use a post-pandemic trip, my friend? So I think that the time is right, and this is something that I will tell you and break right now at GMA: the Girls Trip 2 sequel, we are underway,” Packer told host Michael Strahan during the broadcast.
“We are absolutely in the stages; the ladies are in; I just talked to the director,” he added. “We are underway with Girls Trip 2, and now it’s just about what kind of trip do we take, right? Post-pandemic with all our favorite crazy ladies, what do we do with them? So that’s what we got to figure out.”
The original film starred Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish and told the story of four college friends reuniting after the trials and tribulations of adulthood have kept them apart for so long. They travel to the Essence Festival in New Orleans and rekindle their sisterhood.
Girls Trip quickly became a surprise hit and was rated high by Rotten Tomatoes at 92%, grossing over $140 million worldwide against a budget of only $19 million. The film also won several awards, including two NAACP Image Awards, an MTV Movie Award, and two Black Reel Awards.
Packer hasn’t revealed any further information about Girls Trip 2, including whether the trio of original screenwriters, Kenya Barris (black-ish), Tracy Oliver (First Wives Club), and Erica Rivinoja (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), are coming back for the sequel.
As for what to expect in terms of their new destination, that’s not clear yet. Where do you want the next Girl’s Trip to be?
