Disney has announced that a third installment of “Sister Act” is in development, with Whoopi Goldberg reprising her starring role nearly three decades after the original film was hailed by audiences worldwide.
“Sister Act 3” will premiere on Disney Plus, the corporation’s streaming service, it was confirmed on Thursday.
Goldberg will return as Deloris Van Cartier, a singer forced to enter the witness protection program and be relocated as a nun in a convent.
The 1992 original was a box office hit and won the plaudits of fans. Its sequel, released the following year, received a lukewarm critical reaction and drew in smaller audiences, but both films have retained a cult following since their release.
