“Girls Trip” transports us to West Africa in Ghana.

Pack your zip lines and grapefruits, the “Girls Trip” sequel is taking us to West Africa.

Nearly five years after the smashing success of the first film, it has been confirmed that the star-studded cast of Girls Trip will be reuniting in an exciting new locale.

Tracy Oliver, who co-wrote the original 2017 romp, joined the Variety Studio presented by Audible at Sundance and provided an update on the anticipated reunion of Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish.

Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish will be reprising their iconic roles from the 2017 smash hit film as the sequel will likely be taking place in Ghana.

Speaking at the festival to promote the second season of her Amazon Prime Video series “Harlem,” Oliver said she had a “definitive ‘Girls Trip 2’ update. That it’s officially happening. I can say that.” She also provided a plot update, and while the film’s producer Will Packer “might kill me, we’re looking to set it in Ghana.”

One of Oliver’s “Harlem” stars, actor Shoniqua Shandai, screamed “Afrochella!” after Oliver dropped the news. She refers to the annual Afrochella festival, Ghana’s premiere cultural and music event whose name borrows from the American flower crown convention Coachella.
Oliver confirmed that the ladies of “Girls Trip” will look to attend the festival, which has attracted prominent musical acts from the region, including Beyonce collaborate Shatte Wale. A production timeline is unknown as Oliver still needs to submit her script.
