The Mean Girls cast have officially reunited, and it’s so fetch (yes, we can still make ‘fetch’ happen).
The actors from the original movie, which was released in 2004, joined forces to urge fans to vote ahead of the presidential election in November.
Tina Fey (Ms Norbury), Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron), Rachel McAdams (Regina George), Amanda Seyfried (Karen Smith) and co reunited, and we’re completely obsessed.
The stars came together on the official holiday of all Mean Girls fans (October 3 of course) to analyse their favourite moments from the iconic movie.
Reflecting on playing queen bee Regina, Rachel recalled: ‘It was cathartic – not being exactly queen bee in high school, to then later in life go back to those memories and try to channel them through this character was therapeutic.’
Lindsay added: ‘I really wanted to play Regina because I had just done a movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama queen where I was kind of a weirdo in it, and I was like, “I wanna do a movie where I get to be pretty and dress pretty!”

‘[But] the more that I read the script over and over, I started to really relate to Cady…the trapeze of emotions she goes through.’
However, writer Tina has given us a clue about what happened after the movie – and it seems Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) and Cady weren’t destined for a happy ending.
‘I think Aaron and Cady are Facebook friends,’ she answered, when asked what they would be up to now. ‘I don’t think they ended up together.’
Meanwhile, queen Lindsay took to social media to mark the infamous Mean Girls Day.
For the uninitiated, October 3 is a day where fans celebrate the film in all its glory, due to a particular scene in which Lindsay’s character, Cady Heron, is asked the date while in class by her on-screen love interest.
‘What day is it?’ Aaron asks, to which Cady then responds: ‘It’s October 3rd.’
Taking to Instagram, Lindsay, 34, shared a still from the scene, and wrote: ‘#fbf #itsoctober3rd.’
Fans were living for the fact that the actress had not forgotten about the holiday, with one writing: ‘She’d never let us down.’
The 2004 film sees main character Cady attend public school for the first time at the age of 16, after being homeschooled while she and her parents spent the past 12 years in Africa on a research trip.
Cady later discovers that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be, as she has to deal with The Plastics, the most popular girls in the school.
Trouble arises when she falls for Aaron, who just so happens to be the ex-boyfriend of The Plastics’ leader, Regina George (Rachel).
The film was written by Tina Fey, and was loosely inspired by the non-fiction self-help book Queen Bees And Wannabees, which details the many different social cliques one might find in high school.
Since its release, it has gone on to become a pop culture phenomenon, spawning many online memes as well as a popular stage musical.
It’s also responsible for many other quote-worthy moments, such as ‘on Wednesdays we wear pink’ and the word ‘fetch’.
A standalone sequel, Means Girls 2, was also released in 2011, but it was panned by fans and critics.
Here’s hoping that we will get another sequel with the original cast one day – as Lindsay previously confirmed she will be on board.
She told Variety last year: ‘If anyone has asked for this more than I have, please tell me!!
‘I’ve said it so many times, and so many people have asked me, and I think we’d have so much doing it.’
