(WJW) — Nearly three decades after the first “Sister Act” movie hit theaters, there is some great news for fans: a third movie is finally happening.

Disney confirmed the news Thursday as it laid out other big streaming plans.

In a tweet, Disney said, “Sister Act 3 is in development! @WhoopiGoldberg returns to star and produce, with @TylerPerry as producer as well.”

“Sister Act 3” will premiere on Disney Plus. No release date was given.

The first “Sister Act” movie hit theaters in 1992 followed by a second film the next year.

Fans, and Whoopi herself, have been pushing for a third movie and now it’s happening. Whoopi stars as Deloris Van Cartier, a lounge singer turned nun after being placed into witness protection.
