It’s been almost a decade since rumours started circilating about a third “Sister Act” film and at the Investors Day event in 2020, Disney officially confirmed that it working on a third instalment of “Sister Act” for Disney+, which will see Whoopi Goldberg return as Deloris, a lounge singer, who, in the original film, was persuaded to go into witness protection as a nun at a convent after she witnesses a murder. But once there, she has trouble adjusting to her new lifestyle.

Over the years, we’ve had small updates on the film, including a video of Whoopi Goldberg visiting the Vatican last summer to organise a possible scene from the third film. 

It was initially announced that Tim Federle would direct the upcoming Disney+ Original film, and it would also star Wendy Makkena, Kathy Najimy, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Keke Palmer. 

Filming on the third film hasn’t yet begun, but recently, in an interview People at the Garden of Laughs event at Madison Square Garden, Whoopi Goldberg confirmed that development on the movie is still ongoing.

“It’s still on the way! It’s percolating. They have not said, ‘We’re over you and this movie,’” she quipped, seemingly referring to studio executives. We’re still in the process of writing the script.”

The upcoming “Sister Act” movie is taking a long time to make, highlighting many of the issues with Disney announcing too many projects too early during the Investors Day event.

Recently, the film’s producer, Tyler Perry, expressed his frustration at how long it’s taking to make.

“I’m a little annoyed with how long this has taken me. It’s taking so long — like, I’ve done four movies since we started talking about this. When I’m outside producing with… you know, Disney’s a huge, wonderful company, but I really want to get this movie and Whoopi really wants to get this movie,”

Hopefully, the new “Sister Act” movie will be released soon, but while we wait, both of the original films are available to stream now on Disney+.
