As a sequel to the hit movies Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, fans of the beloved franchise have been eagerly waiting for a third installment for over a decade. The first two movies, released in 1992 and 1993 respectively, were a hit with audiences and saw Whoopi Goldberg’s character Deloris Van Cartier donning a habit to go undercover as a nun, while also inspiring a group of underprivileged students to pursue their love for music.
While there have been rumors floating around for years about the possibility of Sister Act 3, it wasn’t until March 2021 that we received official news. It was announced that Tyler Perry would be producing the movie, with Regina Y. Hicks signed on as the writer. Goldberg also confirmed her involvement and excitement for the project during an episode of The View.
Details about the plot for Sister Act 3 have been kept under wraps, but it’s already drawing excitement from fans. Many are curious to know if it will continue to follow Deloris Van Cartier’s journey as a nun or if it will introduce a new character. Regardless of which direction the movie takes, there is no doubt that music will play a significant role. The first two films featured iconic musical performances and helped bolster the careers of several artists, including Lauryn Hill and Ryan Toby.
Fans are also hoping to see some familiar faces return for the third installment. Many are wondering if Maggie Smith, Harvey Keitel or Kathy Najimy will make an appearance, as they were all in the first two movies. There is also speculation about who will join Goldberg in the lead role, whether it will be a new actress playing a new character or an established actress taking on the role of Deloris once again.
Sister Act has always been known for its uplifting messages about friendship, love, and the power of music. Given the tumultuous events of the past year, many are hopeful that Sister Act 3 will provide that same kind of joy and positivity that the previous films delivered.
Sister Act 3 is in pre-production and has a tentative release date of August 16, 2024.
