Tina Fey’s revelation about the movie being part of a multiverse introduces an intriguing layer to the Mean Girls universe. Drawing a parallel with the Spider-Man films, Fey suggests that this new Mean Girls isn’t just a standalone production but a piece in a broader tapestry of stories. Tina Fey told EW,

“I wouldn’t look at it with a microscope. It doesn’t entirely make sense, but it’s a multiverse. That’s what it is. Yeah, it’s a Spider-Man,” Fey says jokingly. ” I don’t really know those movies, so I don’t know if what I’m saying applies.”

However, she hinted that she does not know much about those marvel movies so her theory could be wrong. The inclusion of a subplot where Cady Heron, now portrayed by the talented Angourie Rice, revisits her high school roots is a clever nod to the first film.

Cady’s return to the North Shore High School Mathletes team for the state finals competition adds a layer of continuity, and the competition being moderated by none other than Lindsay Lohan herself is a delightful twist that blurs the lines between the two movies.

Tina Fey, the maestro behind the scenes, orchestrates this symphony of nostalgia by not only reprising her iconic role as Ms. Norbury but also bringing back Tim Meadows as Principal Duvall. The inclusion of these familiar faces is more than a mere nod to the past; it’s a deliberate attempt to weave a seamless connection between the two timelines.

However, the plot thickens as the characters evolve. In a delightful twist, the film unveils the unexpected marriage of Principal Duvall and Ms. Norbury, adding a new layer to their dynamic. Fey told EW,

“Paramount was like, ‘We would like you to [play Ms. Norbury],’ and I could get my head around doing it if Tim [Meadows] would do it too.”

The return of Lindsay Lohan in a cameo appearance adds another layer of authenticity in the new film. One notable inclusion is Reneé Rapp, who steps into the formidable shoes of Regina George once again, reprising her role from the Broadway show. This strategic casting choices not only pays homage to the theatrical iteration but also introduces a set of talented actors who has already proven her prowess in embodying the iconic character.
