Sister Act 3 Release Date Speculation As Whoopi Goldberg Says She Gets The ‘Sister Act 3’ Script Soon

The Sister Act threequel, which has been stuck in development limbo for years, is finally starting to move forward. In a recent interview with Collider’s Perri Nemiroff, Whoopi Goldberg talked about her role in the upcoming historical drama Till.

She also gave fans some good news about Sister Act 3. Goldberg recently said on an episode of The View that she still wants to do the movie and that she’d like to do it with her original co-star, Jennifer Lewis from Black-ish.

Nemiroff took the chance when Collider talked to Goldberg to ask her about the upcoming Disney+ movie. Goldberg didn’t want to say much, but she did say, “I’m waiting for the script at the end of the month.” Tyler Perry, who writes, directs, and acts, wrote that script.

He recently talked about Sister Act 3’s slow start, saying on The View that they’re “just trying to get everyone moving in the right direction to get it going.” So, if Goldberg’s update is any indication, it looks like things are finally going that way after all!

Goldberg was in the first Sister Act movie, which came out in 1992, and the second one, Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, which came out a year later. In 2020, it was announced that Disney+ would add a third movie to its growing list of shows and movies.

Since then, there hasn’t been much news about the threequel until recently. In the first movie, Goldberg played a Las Vegas lounge singer named Deloris Van Cartier. When she saw her mob boss boyfriend, Harvey Keitel, kill someone, she was sent to a run-down convent for witness protection. As Deloris tries to fit in at the convent and fights with the Mother Superior (Maggie Smith), she finds her place by making the church’s old choir sound better.

Even though Mother Superior doesn’t like Deloris’s more modern tastes, her work with the choir brings the church and the neighborhood around it back to life and gets national attention, which doesn’t really fit with the witness protection program.

Goldberg and Smith, along with Kathy Najimi and Wendy Makkena, played the same characters in the second movie. In the second movie, the nuns asked Deloris to come back and teach music at a local Catholic school to help poor kids find themselves. Lauryn Hill, a big name in hip hop, and Sheryl Lee Ralph, who just won an Emmy, were also in the sequel.

Since Goldberg just got the script, it will likely be a while before we hear anything about who will be in Sister Act 3 or when it will come out. Stay tuned to Collider for more information, and when Nemiroff’s full interview with Goldberg and her conversation with Till director Chinonye Chukwu is up, be sure to read them.
