Mean Girls Musical Movie drops first trailer – but fans are confused

Mean Girls (2024): Official trailer

The Mean Girls movie has finally dropped its first look trailer – but fans have been left confused by the lack of music for the musical.

In the first look of the highly anticipated movie, out on January 12, Renee Rapp takes over from Rachel McAdams in the role of Regina George.

However, in this twisted remake, the film is meant to be based on the musical and not the movie – and yet rather than showcase the songs we’re about to see, Olivia Rodrigo track, Get Him Back, is playing over the clips instead.

The decision was not lost on fans of the cult teen favorite – with some even calling out the studio for opting to cut all the musical numbers from the trailer.

“Call me intrigued, but why are they not teasing any of the musical numbers?” one fan wrote on X (previously Twitter). “This is an adaptation of the musical adaptation of the original soon to be 20 yr old film [and] just one teased song in particular would’ve been appropriate. A bit disappointed in that.”

Another agreed and added: “Okay who gave Tina Fey the idea to turn her beloved classic into a musical and why is this trailer playing Olivia Rodrigo and not a song from said musical?? I’m not sold on this movie right now and I don’t think I will be.”

While a third gave a far more harsh critique and wrote: “Releasing a trailer for the #MeanGirls musical that has no music and essentially looks like a s****y remake of the original is a baffling decision. Totally robbing the movie of the only thing that justifies this story being told again.”

However, others were slightly more lenient, with one writing: “I don’t know why there’s no music in a trailer for a musical?? That said… I’m so in!!”
