The manager of The Spice Girls, Simon Fuller, has confirmed that the iconic pop group will be starring in an upcoming animated movie.
The band – which now includes all of the original members except Victoria Beckham/Posh Spice – will be heading out on a UK comeback tour later this year, but it looks like they’ll also be appearing on screens in the not-so-distant future.
Discussing with Billboard about the band’s future plans, Simon mentioned: “What’s coming next is that we are going to be doing lots of exciting things. We’ll be making an animated movie and there’s lots of exciting plans to come.”
He also admitted that he “expected” the sell-out success of The Spice Girls comeback tour, adding: “To be honest with you, while it was clearly phenomenal, they are such an awesome phenomenon I expected it.
“The last tour we did seven or eight years ago the demand was equal, if not maybe even more.
“It’s a global phenomenon. They’re more timely now than ever and it’s fantastic. I’m so happy for the girls. They deserve it.”
