Disney+ has officially confirmed a Sister Act 3 film. Sister Act was released in 1992 and a sequel was quickly released in 1993. Almost 30 years later, Whoopi Goldberg is discussing the highly-anticipated film and sharing who she would cast in the third movie.
Whoopi will reprise her role as the singing nun Deloris Van Trier. It seems as though actress Keke Palmer will star in the film as they both already discussed it on air. In 2021, Keke appeared on The View and told Whoopi, “I just want you to know that I’m available for the job. Any job.” Whoopi confirmed that she had already brought up her name with executives.

Whoopi continued in another interview, “I want everybody to come in. I want Lizzo to come in. I want everybody. I want the girl with the chest—what’s her name?” Her interviewer, Charlamagne Tha God, joked, “The girl with the chest? That’s a lot of girls.” She finally said that she was thinking of rapper Nicki Minaj.

She added, “I want as many people who want to have some fun because I really, desperately need to have some fun. We should get the script by the end of this month. Hopefully, we’ll get it together and get it done, sooner rather than later.”
Whoopi believes that Disney was inspired to make another Sister Act film after the excitement of the Hocus Pocus sequel. She saw the original stars come back to play the Sanderson sisters and shared, “Put those nuns back out there and see if they have any juice!”
