Tina and Tim will reprise their teacher roles of Ms Norbury and Principal Duvall, respectively.

“Teachers work forever,” Tina told Seth Meyers.

She also gushed about the young cast taking over the roles for the Paramount+ musical.

“We have an amazing cast. I’m super excited about this cast,” she said. “It’s just an incredible cast.”

Production on the film starts in just a couple weeks on March 6th, and the songs will be a little different than in the Broadway show.

“The songs are sounding – It’s really a more kind of pop. And it’s a fascinating process, actually, because you kind of, in Broadway, everything has to play to the back of the house, and then movies, you can kind of come back in and things can play really intimately,” Tina said.

“We have a very cool directing team, very cool choreographer,” she added.

Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr are directing, while Kyle Hanagami has been tapped to choreograph.
