It’s been almost a decade since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 graced our movie screens, and there’s still a beautiful glimmer of hope for a third installment. That’s right, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3 could still be a thing, according to America Ferrera. The star of the first two films told E! News another movie is “an idea and a conversation.”
Ferrera has said her co-stars (Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn, and Blake Lively) are still some of her best friends and supporters, and told E! News, “We would love to get paid to hang out with each other. That would wonderful.”
Bledel also confirmed that at a new film could become a reality on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in November, saying, “I think it would be so much fun. We talk about it. I think we should absolutely do it. We’re working on it, so we’ll see if it happens.”
The book series, published in 2001, contains five books total, so it only makes sense that the movies continue. Two long years ago, Ferrera said on the Meredith Vieira Show that a script was being written, though the movie itself hadn’t gotten the green light yet.
So a script seemingly exists somewhere in the world, and at least two of the four stars are on board — what’s the hold up? The world needs more empowering movies about female friendship and traveling pants.
