Looks like it might be time to revisit your favorite '90s tracks! Spice World 2—the seminal 1997 musical comedy starring the one, the only Spice Girls—is reportedly in the works, and we're ready for a heaping dose of girl power and platform shoes.  

According to The Sun, the original Spice World will turn 25 next year, and it appears the British pop divas want to mark the occasion with a "cheeky" sequel. Our fave 90s fashion queens Ginger, Baby, Sporty, Scary, and Posh Spice together on screen again? Needless to say, we're ready.

Is there going to be a Spice World 2?

According to reports, the Spice Girls are planning ahead: Spice World will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2022, and to mark the milestone, they've allegedly reached out to a renowned screenwriter to see if a script can be created in time for its anniversary. Geri Horner a.k.a. Ginger Spice is the one who is apparently making the plans with different movie heavyweights. 

Who will be in Spice World 2?

Reports further indicate that Melanie C (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Mel B (Scary Spice) are all in support of Geri's efforts to bring the project to fruition. 

The one member who will need some extra convincing? Posh Spice, a.k.a. Victoria Beckham. (We have time and we're remaining hopeful that she comes around.) 

When will Spice World 2 be released?

Should the project get off the ground, we have to believe that a release will coincide with the movie's 25th anniversary. Spice World was originally released in December 1997 in the U.K. and January 1998 in the U.S., per USA Today

What was Spice World about?

Despite abysmal ratings, Spice World remains a beloved classic for '90s kids everywhere. In the film, the girl group is tasked with performing at Royal Albert Hall, but there are plenty of things that manage to take the Spice Girls off course. As Posh Spice would say: "Hold onto your knickers!" 

Are there any updates on social media?

While all remains quiet on the western front—for now—it appears our beloved Ginger Spice did celebrate another important milestone in her singing career: the 20-year anniversary of her song, "It's Raining Men."

Meanwhile, the main Spice Girls account has been updated with the typical fun, girl-powered posts. (But you can rest assured we're watching the social media space very closely now that this news has broken.) 

You can also expect any news to appear on the Spice Girls website. (Yes, it still exists—you're welcome.) 

Have there been other Spice Girls reunions?

The iconic pop group infamously reunited in August 2012 at the closing ceremony of the Summer Olympics at London Stadium, driving in and eventually dancing on top of five iconic London black cabs to a screaming crowd of 66,000 to the tune of "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life." 

The group reunited even further in 2019 for a 13-show tour throughout the U.K. and Ireland. Sadly, Posh Spice did not commit to the tour, which is why fans suspect she might not be on board for the film. Following the Olympics reunion, Beckham told Spain's Vanity Fair in 2014: "That was a perfect time to say, "That's great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.' Sometimes you've got to know when it's time to leave the party." But we're still crossing our fingers! 

While we're sitting here waiting for confirmation and praying that the sequel of our dreams will happen, we'll just be busy having a karaoke session with some of our go-to songs: "Wannabe," "If You Can't Dance," "Say You'll Be There," and on and on.
