The first “Girls Trip” was a significant box office hit, grossing $140 million worldwide on a modest $16 million budget.
The sequel was at long last happening early last year, but it was later revealed that the production hit a snag due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Girls Trip is about four best friends, the "Flossy Posse”, who have grown distant over the years. When lifestyle guru Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall), who is dubbed "the next Oprah", is offered an opportunity to be the keynote speaker at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, she decides to bring along her friends to turn her work vacation into a girls' trip.
