Sequel To Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert In The Works

Posted April 19, 2024 by with 6 comments

It’s been years (don’t ask how many—but it was during the previous millennium) since I saw the first one, but I think I remember being bored and maybe not really getting it? I was probably too young and hadn’t even been to a drag show yet. Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert is of course a cult classic now and will be worth a re-watch before the sequel comes out, especially since it’ll feature all the original stars, per Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: Stephan Elliott, who directed the celebrated cult classic The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, tells this column that a sequel “is happening” and that the original movie’s stars Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving are back “on board” 30 years after the film’s initial release.

“I’m not repeating myself, we’ll start the new film in Australia, but by God, we’re going on one helluva journey,” Elliott reveals.

“The original cast is on board, I’ve got a script that everybody likes, we’re still working out deals. … It’s happening,” he adds with brio.
