For those of you out there who want to feel like a slushy is flying directly at you and dribbling down your shirt, get excited—”Glee” in 3D is coming this summer. Fox has just announced the new movie, which will premiere on August 12 and run for two weeks. Essentially, it’ll be a film version of the concert tour that has been supporting the show. Some promised numbers: “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Teenage Dream,” and the show’s first hit “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
“This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series,” said creator Ryan Murphy. “We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”
Unfortunately, this news come just as my interest in “Glee” has completely tapered off. Are you still watching the show? And will you be going to see this flick?
