Disney studios stirred the excitement of fans with a tweet that revealed that actress Whoopi Goldberg would star in "Sister Act 3" alongside Tyler Perry.


Disney fans were thrilled to discover that iconic actress Whoopi Goldberg was cast for the third movie in the "Sister Act" series and most can't wait for the movie to be in the Cinemas.

Almost 30 years after she starred as the singing nun Deloris, Goldberg is making a sensational return to the series, but this time both as an actor and a producer.

Her return to the series was announced on the official Disney Twitter page, which revealed that Tyler Perry would serve as one of the producers too.

Since the post was shared, fans have found it challenging to keep the excitement of seeing one of their favorite actresses back on the TV screen on a low. The tweet was captioned:

"Sister Act 3 is in development! ? @WhoopiGoldberg returns to star and produce, with @TylerPerry as producer as well."


One awed fan gushed about seeing Goldberg in the movie, which she said shaped her childhood. A second excited fan said she could not wait for the release of the movie.

Although Disney studio did not reveal a release date, fans can be sure to expect a thrilling experience from the movie.

Goldberg has remained one of the most accomplished actresses in Hollywood.


It was also announced that "Sister Act 3" will premiere on @DisneyPlus instead of a traditional theatrical release. Goldberg has been vocal about getting the original cast together for the "Sister Act 3" project, which she has been keen on for years.

In October, the actress revealed that she was previously reluctant to work on the project, but seeing fans' interest made her reconsider her stance. Perry had previously suggested a third "Sister Act" film starring Goldberg and Tiffany Haddish.


In 2018, Goldberg and Perry appeared on "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen," and Perry revealed his desire to see Golberg in the movie.

"Sister Act 3" will not be Goldberg's first collaboration with Perry. "Sister Act 3" will be their fourth collaboration, with their last partnership being the 2018's "Nobody's Fool."

Since becoming a fan favorite in the 80s, Goldberg has remained one of the most accomplished actresses in Hollywood. Her career has seen her scoop some of the biggest awards in the industry.

Goldberg made history when she became the first female host of the Academy Awards in 1994. The actress remains an iconic star to her fans.
