Spice Girls to become superheroes in animated movie

13 June 2019

Paramount Animation has just revealed what they want - what they really, really want.

The animated film is still in early development with the studio still negotiating with all the women, but Paramount Animation president Mireille Soria tells The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the news, that the girls are "very involved".

Spice Girls fever is at an all-time high and the film industry has clocked on: a Spice Girls movie is in the works.

It has been nearly 22 years since the premiere of the Spice Girls debut film, Spiceworld: The Movie, and The Hollywood Reporter now brings word that the British girl group legend are planning to make a comeback to the big screen in their own animated feature in collaboration with Paramount Animation. Simon Fuller is producing the film, which will be penned by Karen McCullah and Kiwi Smith.

The Spice Girls founded in 1994 and found global success with songs including Wannabe, Who Do U Think You Are? and 2 Become 1. In 1997, three years after the Spice Girls formed, the musical comedy Spice World opened in theaters. A "Spice World" reunion tour - featuring all of the original members except Victoria Beckham - kicked off last month. Critics roasted Spice World, finding its plot (or lack thereof) incredibly messy and the superficial gloss that coated the whole whacky adventure to be off-putting.

For fans of 90s pop music, a new movie is coming to spice up your life. According to Variety, the film will feature the girl group as superheroes with a "girl power" message.
