From “Queen Bees and Wannabees” by Rosalind Wiseman to Tina Fey’s 2004 cult classic to the 2018 musical, “Mean Girls” has seen three iterations, and the fourth — a movie musical adapted from the Broadway production — will take the story from the stage to the big screen. Fey’s new 2024 script updates her original adapted screenplay based on Wiseman’s book. From book to film to musical to movie musical, the “SNL” alum has shepherded the comedy through many different media.

Fey herself also reprises her role as Ms. Norbury, homeroom and calculus teacher at North Shore High School in Chicago. Her “SNL” alum Tim Meadows also returns as Principal Ron Duvall.

Reneé Rapp, Auli’i Cravalho and more fill out the young ensemble.
