Megan Thee Stallion is getting ready to dominate Hollywood like she regularly tops the charts!
Instead of embracing another character, the sensational rapper brought her “stylish, bougie and ratchet” vibes to the upcoming film “Dicks: The Musical.” The voluptuous goddess expressed her excitement about the project in her latest social media update.
The Texas Southern University graduate, who previously starred in TV shows like “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” and “P-Valley,” dropped a trailer for the musical. Additionally, she surprised fans with the comedy’s release date during the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
Megan Thee Stallion makes film debut in upcoming musical based on the iconic ‘Parent Trap’ film
The ‘Savage’ hitmaker shared a nearly two-minute trailer of her new film on her Instagram. The footage captured leads Joshua Sharp and Aaron Jackson in the opening scenes, showing off their comedic skills with an unexpected song about their oversized packages and extraordinary lives.
Then Megan comes on screen as their boss and notes that the duo were good at their jobs as salespeople and looked like identical twins. Plot twist: The caramel-colored beauty knocked when the duo’s half-heart-shaped lockets prove they were brothers.
‘Wow, we’re twins. We are identical twins,” the pair shouted in one scene. Although the duo was far from identical, hence the joke, the characters made it their mission to reunite their divorced parents. The story was reminiscent of the iconic ’90s film “The Parents Trap,” starring Lindsay Lohan as twins.
However, unlike the classic film, the musical was comedic, with many jokes and sexual innuendos. Megan gave a sexy performance in a song in which she effortlessly rapped about being a female boss.
Part of the text read: ‘You’re all just servants. This is my palace. Built it up brick by brick. So line it up. Get on your knees and suck my fucking cock.” That wasn’t the entertainer’s only pivotal moment in the teaser, as we see her bust out some cool moves and even punch someone in one scene.
“Hotties. SAG has given us permission to promote my first film, ‘DICKS: THE MUSICAL’. Y’all not ready for this yet,” the chart-topper announced in the caption. “In theaters from September 29.” The post received more than 300,000 likes and several comments from enthusiastic fans.
Many were happy that the 28-year-old supported the SAG union, while others expressed interest in watching the musician’s new film. “I’m SO glad you said SAG approved this and you care about the strike!!!!!” shouted one social media user.
“I will unapologetically consume all of Megan Thee Stallion’s media,” declared another. A third chimed in: “It’s going to be ‘Grammy and Emmy winner Megan Thee Stallion’ soon, ma.” More fans echoed similar sentiments, with one writing: “She-Hulk was just the beginning. I literally can’t wait for your actress era.”
The film is written and stars actors Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp. The project is a stage show-turned-movie directed by Larry Charles and starring notable names such as Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally and Bowen Yang.
A look at ‘Dicks: The Musical’ and what sets the project apart from other films
A candid review from Deadline described the upcoming musical as a “wicked exploration of twinship and identity,” with the leads embarking on a “crazy plan to restore their estranged family.” Each character was given a unique personality, adding humor and complexity to the film.
Although it aimed to make the audience laugh, the film addressed important social issues through its plot. The issues include “consent, workplace harassment and toxic masculinity.” The purpose seemed to be a reminder that “laughter is our best defense against this grim reality.”
Additionally, “Dicks: The Musical” took viewers down memory lane with sentimental childhood moments and a “visual commentary on adulthood.” Despite being a comedy project, the film brought its A-game with its fantastic musical production by Marius De Vries.
The script must have been epic because it enticed two musical theater icons, Nathan Lane and Megan Mullally, to participate in the project. The reviewer seemed to agree as the ending left them speechless.
What can fans expect from watching “Dicks: The Musical?” They must be ready to have their hearts filled with the message ‘love is love’. However, the lesson felt ridiculous. The project’s take on love can have shock value or be a reference to people’s perspectives on the LGBTQ community.
