Oh happy day! Seeing as Disney is just as obsessed with early '90s nostalgia as the rest of America, they've found yet another film from the internet's most-beloved decade to revive.
This time, it's Disney's 1992 Whoopi Goldberg comedy Sister Act!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has tapped screenwriters Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah -- the comedy writing team behind 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde, Ella Enchanted and The House Bunny -- to pen this new installment in the Sister Act franchise.
The original starred Goldberg as a lounge singer in Reno who goes into witness protection at a convent in San Francisco after a Mafioso puts a bounty on her head.
It's unclear whether The View co-host would reprise her role as Deloris Van Cartier (a.k.a Sister Mary Clarence) as no plot details have yet to be revealed.

The original film made $139.6 million at the box office, making it the sixth highest-grossing film of 1992. It spawned a less-successful sequel and a wildly popular stage musical.
Disney has been announcing remakes and live-action adaptations left and right in recent months. Live action versions of Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, Pinocchio and Dumbo are just a few Disney classics that will be making their way to the big screens in the coming years.
