Yes, they’re making a Spice Girls movie

The 1990s are making a comeback. The spice girls are reunited, starring in an animated movie, to be released within the upcoming years. This would be the group’s second full-length movie. Their first movie, Spice World, premiered in the 1990s.

The group’s upcoming movie, however, will be animated. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Spice Girls “are very involved” in the process of making this film. It will feature old classics in addition to new songs performed by the girls.

The movie will be created by Paramount Animation and was brought to fruition by the Paramount Animation president, Mireille Soria. The Spice Girls movie will be made along with a few other features by the company, including The SpongeBob Movie: It’s a Wonderful Sponge.

All five original members are on board

The group rose to stardom with their song, “Wannabe,” which quickly became an iconic song of the 1990s. Originally released in 1996, this song continues to be a power anthem for women and fans across the globe, earning millions of streams on Spotify.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, all five members of the Spice Girls are on board. That includes Melanie Brown (Scary), Emma Bunton (Baby), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty), Geri Halliwell (Ginger), and Victoria Beckham (Posh.)

The last time the girl group released a full-length album was 2000. Their last ep was released in 2007. Since then, The Spice Girls performed at various live events, including the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Spice Girls are currently on tour

On Twitter, fans are telling us what they want, what they really, really want. There’s no official release date for this movie yet, but fans are already celebrating the reunion.

“Another #SpiceGirls movie!!!! 32 year old me and 10-year-old me are freaking out,” said one Twitter user.

“Paramount Animation’s upcoming slate has a lot of really neat, exciting projects, including a few they just announced. I love that Ron Howard wants to direct an animated film. Even a Spice Girls animated movie has a lot of potential!” said another Twitter user.

After the result of Spice World, some Twitter users are disapproving of this movie, saying, “we already had a spices girls movie and still have nightmares of how bad it was. The world is not ready for another one.”

For the remainder of June, The Spice Girls will be on tour in the United Kingdom. Until the release of their movie, fans can listen to The Spice Girls’ albums on Spotify and most music streaming platforms.
