‘Sister Act 3’ is officially coming to Disney+.
Whoopi Goldberg is set to reprise her role as Deloris Van Cartier nearly 30 years after she first starred as the lounge singer turned nun.
Tyler Perry is attached to the project as a producer alongside Whoopi.
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.”
Goldberg said the first two films were “fun and it feels good.”
“And you know, nobody’s mad,” she continued. “It’s just, listen — bad singing, great singing, OK singing, and then nuns. What’s better than that?”
The View co-host played Deloris, a lounge singer who joins a convent after being placed in a witness protection program to stay away from a pimp. The film earned over $230 million at the box office and became an instant hit.
Sister Act 3 will mark the fourth collaboration between Goldberg and Perry, 51.
The pair most recently worked together on Nobody’s Fool with Tiffany Haddish in 2018.
While promoting the film on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Perry teased the idea of another Sister Act movie starring Goldberg and Haddish.
“The two of them in Sister Act, that should happen. Let’s make it happen,” he said.
We’re excited for this!
