Gabrielle Union Says A ‘Bring It On’ Sequel Is ‘Absolutely Going To Happen’
Gabrielle Union has confirmed that a ‘Bring It On’ sequel will “absolutely” happen.
The 47-year old actress said while on The Late Late Show with James Corden:
“It’s absolutely going to happen. I think we because we all got obsessed with ‘Cheer’ on Netflix and it kind of like brought back the whole love of cheerleading, and we kinda want to see where these people would be 20 years later.”
Gabrielle Union recently did an interview where she shared her thoughts on the film.
“Bring It On is a fun teen movie, but there’s so much more when you pull back the layers. It allows White people to see themselves as complicit in cultural appropriation, but the takeaway for Black audiences or marginalized audiences are so different. It told them, ‘You’re not crazy. Your emotional, spiritual, and physical labor has been stolen and repackaged. Cultural appropriation is real and the lack of credit for your work and labor is real.”
In the film, Kirsten Dunst plays Torrance Shipman, cheerleading captain at Rancho Carne High School in San Diego. She learns that the squad’s former captain stole some of their best routines from other teams including Gabrielle Unions‘ character Isis. Isis is the cheer captain for the East Compton Clovers. Both teams have to compete in order to make it to the national championship.
