The Bring It On legacy is insanely impressive. Obviously, the original movie with Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union from 2000 is an all-time classic, but on top of that, there are four (about to be five) sequels. Oh, and there’s also the musical with music from Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tony award-winning Tom Kitt. Now, we are gearing up for the sixth movie, Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack.
Well, just when we thought we’d seen it all, we watched this clip from the newest installment, and realized we definitely hadn’t. The slip shows Destiny (Cristine Prosperi) and her national-champion winning team The Rebels experience some, shall we say, issues, during a live performance.
It seems that even cheerleading isn’t safe from the dangers of the digital world, as a menacing-looking cheer squad calling themselves “The Truth,” hack into their music and video to challenge the rebels to a global, virtual cheerleading showdown. The clip ends with the masked leader telling Destiny and her squad that they’ve been #cheersmacked, and honestly we are pretty #gobsmacked by this dramatic clip.
The movie features a pretty star-studded cast. In addition to Degrassi: The Next Generation’s Cristine Prosperi, the movie stars The Fosters’ Jordan Rodrigues, Resident Evil: Apocalypse’s Sophie Vavasseur, and Independence Day: Resurgence’s Vivica A Fox. In fact, the Bring It On franchise has starred some major A-Listers throughout the years. From Hayden Pennettiere and Solange Knowles in Bring It On: All or Nothing to Ashley Benson in Bring It On: In It to Win It, and even Christina Milian in Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, we’ve seen a lot of our favorite stars battle it out with some insane cheer routines.
As if that wasn’t enough, the movies have some fire soundtracks too. Everyone from Gwen Stefani to Ashley Tisdale has made an appearance, and we’re sure this new installment will have some great music as well. The DVD will be released on August 29th (you can also win a copy of it here), but while we wait, we’ll be watching this video on repeat.
