Brace yourself for a Mean Girls musical movie

Mean Girls is making a return to the big screen in the form of a musical and we can't contain our excitement!

The producers of the movie's Broadway musical announced the news this week.

And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, it was confirmed Tina Fey will return as writer.

The original movie came out in 2004 and starred Lindsay Lohan as the protagonist.

It's based on Rosalind Wiseman's book Queen Bees and Wannabes.

The film became such a huge success that writer Tina Fey turned it into a Broadway musical.
