Warning: Spoilers ahead Mean girls movie below.
Cameos from the cast of the original Mean girls movie and Broadway show.
Just within the star-studded cast itself, there are multiple layers of nostalgia. In addition to Fey reprising her film role as Mrs. Nobury, Tim Meadows also reprized his role as Mr. Duvall, the high school principal he played in the original film.
The film also featured a surprise appearance from Lindsay Lohan, who played the original Cady Heron in the 2004 film. In the new film, Lohan plays a judge during the math competition in which Cady notably participates.
During a recent interview with PeopleRice talked about the cameo and how it “meant so much to her” to get the chance to work with Lohan. “It’s such a rare experience to really get into the head of a character and then meet someone who has done the same thing,” she said. “Just the fact that we have that shared experience means a lot.”
There’s also a cameo from Ashley Park, who most notably played the role of Gretchen Wieners in the film Mean girls musical when it first hit Broadway. In the 2024 film, Park plays a high school French teacher.
Reintroducing characteristic film lines.
Unsurprisingly, a plethora of lines from the original films were incorporated into the script for the 2024 film. For example, when Cady’s crush Aaron Samuels, played by Christopher Briney, asked her what day it was, she replied, “It’s 3 October,” just as Lohan did in the original film.
However, there are some changes in the way the lines are spoken. In the first film, Regina and her friends write in their Burn Book – which is later used to spread rumors about students – that Cady’s boyfriend Damian Hubbard (played by Jaquel Spivey) was “almost too gay to function.” But in the new movieDamian’s boyfriend, Janis Sarkisian (played by Auli’i Cravalho), is the one who tells Cady that he’s “almost too gay to function,” before cheekily adding, “But I’m persevering.”
The lines from ‘The Plastics’ have been reworked in the new film, with Karen saying one of the most popular lines from the original film: ‘On Wednesdays, we wear pink.’
The continuation of the romance of two teachers.
In the original Mean girls In the film, viewers see Ms. Norbury and Mr. Duvall have a budding romance, with a few flirty exchanges between classes. Towards the end of the film, the couple also gets the chance to dance during the Spring Fling.
However, in the 2024 film, Norbury and Duvall are already dating, unlike the math teacher who was single for most of the 2004 film. Moreover, the already established couple also appeared to be married, as Duvall had a ring on her finger.
Fey later confirmed this assumption about the plot during a recent interview with Entertainment weeklysaying, “They just got married.”
Regina and Cady’s iconic jewelry.
In the 2004 film, Regina has a specific sense of style, consisting of colorful skirts and shirts. She also had an iconic necklace with the letter “R” on it, in honor of the first initial of her name. While Cady remained part of ‘The Plastics’, she dressed as Regina and even received a necklace with the letter ‘C’ on it.
The 2024 film featured both Cady and Regina’s jewelry. But this time half of the chains are gold and the other half are beads. Additionally, the letters “C” and “R” are gold, as opposed to silver as in the original film.
