Some good news to take into your weekend. The beloved series “Sister Act” is getting a part three!!
Whoopi Goldberg will reprise her role as Deloris Van Cartier nearly 30 years after the actress first starred as the lounge singer turned nun.
Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production President Sean Bailey announced the exciting news on Thursday during Disney Investor Day, also noting that Tyler Perry has signed on to produce alongside Goldberg.
The film, which follows 1992’s Sister Act and 1993’s Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, will debut on Disney+.
Goldberg, 65, has long advocated for another Sister Act installment, teasing the possibility of a third film in October.
During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Goldberg revealed that she had been trying to get the cast back together.
“For a long time, they kept saying no one wanted to see it,” Goldberg said. “And then quite recently, it turns out, that may not be true. People may want to see it.”
She continued, “So, we’re working diligently to try to figure out how to get the gang together and come back.”
