It's so hard to say good-bye to yesterday, and to those traveling pants that kept four friends in touch over the long summer breaks. "Sisterhood Everlasting" will be the third and final movie in the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" series, based on the novels by Ann Brashares.
The movie takes place 10 years since the last time we checked in with Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget, and the gals are all grown up and almost 30. Not even pants have been able to keep them close, and not just because butt sizes wax and wane over the years. Life happens, babies happen, careers happen, and drama happens. In "Everlasting," Tibby invites everyone on a trip that's sure to give viewers "all the feels," as they say.
The first two movies starred Amber Tamblyn as Tibby, Alexis Bledel as Lena, America Ferrera as Carmen, and Blake Lively as Bridget. There's currently no word on whether or not the actresses will reprise their roles, but it would be a bit strange if they didn't. On the other hand, they've all gone on to moderately successful and wildly different careers in TV and other media.
Will the same audience who ate up the first two "Sisterhood" movies come back for a more adult tale? The readers have grown up with the Tibby and her friends, but it's just as hard to stay in touch with beloved characters as it is with actual friends. Will a YA audience show up for a movie about grown women? Will grown women still care about this YA series? Has anyone washed those pants yet? Stay tuned for answers to these questions and more.
