Mean Girls is based on the Broadway musical and 2004 film of the same name. The remake is written by Tina Fey, who wrote the original film and the book for the musical, and plays Ms. Norbury in both movies.

The new Mean Girls follows Cady Heron (Rice), a new student who is welcomed into the top of the high school social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called "The Plastics," ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika).

"However, when Cady makes the misstep of falling for Regina's ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina's crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group's apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli'i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school," an official synopsis reads.
