What Are the Chances of the Sister Act 3?

There’s no way you didn’t see some kind of Whoopi Goldberg project if you were alive in the 1990s. You may recognize her as one of The View’s hosts, but Goldberg was a major hit movie star 30 years ago, starring in films such as The Color Purple, Ghost, and The Lion King, to name a few.

She hosted the Oscars when she wasn’t nominated for one. Goldberg will now reprise one of her most famous film roles for Sister Act 3 with a little help from the unstoppable Tyler Perry. Though Sister Act is just one of Goldberg’s many hit films, it is most likely her most well-known.

The film, which was released in 1992, centered on Deloris Wilson (Whoopi Goldberg), a Nevada lounge singer who enters witness protection after witnessing her mob-connected boyfriend Vince LaRocca (Harvey Keitel) murder an informant. Deloris disguises herself as a nun in a convent and soon helps to resurrect their dormant choir.

The film was a box office success, grossing more than $230 million worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). The film was so successful that it spawned a sequel a year later, but Sister Act 2 received less-than-stellar box office numbers and was widely panned by critics (via Rotten Tomatoes).

Now, three decades later, and following the success of a Broadway musical based on the films, Disney+ is resurrecting the franchise. In a December tweet, Disney confirmed that Sister Act 3 was “in development,” and that Goldberg would not only co-produce with Perry but would also return to star in the film.

When Is Sister Act 3 Going to Be Released?

Now that we know there will be a third Sister Act film to complete the trilogy, the first question in many fans’ minds is likely to be: When can we see it?

Since the film’s official development began in mid-December 2020, the release date has remained largely unknown. Given that the project was only recently announced and that filming will not begin until later in 2021, it’s reasonable to expect the film to premiere in 2022 at the earliest.

While the release date is unknown, it’s likely Perry is producing because his film studio in Georgia was one of the first to resume production last summer after COVID-19 shut down many studios, according to CBS News.

Though it will be difficult to wait for Whoopi to get back into the habit, fans must follow the nuns’ advice and practice patience.

Who Will Be in the Cast of Sister Act 3?

The original Sister Act’s talented supporting cast, in addition to its lively musical numbers and Goldberg’s stellar comedic skills, contributed to its success.

Sister Act’s comedic moments were given a “major boost” by Kathy Najimy, who played the jolly Sister Mary Patrick, and Mary Wickes, who played the sarcastic Sister Mary Lazarus, according to Variety, while Maggie Smith’s “solid performance” as Mother Superior provided the film with the “requisite warmth.” Who can forget Najimy’s iconic dance scene to “Gravy” by Dee Dee Sharp?

Wickes tragically died in 1995. However, Najimy, who also appears in the upcoming Hocus Pocus sequel, told SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show earlier this month that she would be open to joining the sequel because filming the two previous films was enjoyable and, unlike Hocus Pocus, there is less time in the make-up chair.

“Do you want to know why I like that? There will be no hair, make-up, or spankings “She stated. “It’s a win-win situation for me.” Smith, meanwhile, has yet to confirm whether she will return for the third installment of Downton Abbey.

Nonetheless, during a 2017 Sister Act reunion on The View, the legendary actress stated that she had “such fond memories of when we did those crazy, crazy, crazy films.”

Goldberg, on the other hand, is no slouch. On The Late Late Show with James Corden in October, she said that she and the team were “working diligently to try to figure out how to get the gang together and to come back.”

What Is the Story of Sister Act 3?

The plot of the upcoming sequel is still unknown. Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit ended with Deloris saving St. Francis Academy from closure after winning a choir competition, but where the third installment will pick up from there is unknown.

We do know that the third film will be written by Mixed-ish and Star writer-producer Karin Gist, as well as Insecure writer-producer Regina Hicks (via Variety).

And, while the plot is still unknown, we do have some potential titles for the film. Goldberg and Stephen Colbert suggested titles such as Oh My God It Still Fits, Backer in the Habit, and Blacker in the Habit during a December interview on The Late Show.

Whatever the title, seeing Goldberg and the nuns get back into their routine for a third film would make any fan happy.
