Entering the realm of The Godfather, Lord of the Rings, the first Star Wars, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants will get a third installment, allowing audiences, for a blessed third time, join the pants on their travels.
I don’t know what Traveling Pants is about, and I don’t care to know, but judging by the stills I just had to sift through for this article, it involves girls smiling while walking through an airport. With a rich premise like that, it’s hard to believe that the producers will stop at just three installments. I could watch smiling young adults walk through airports forever!
And sometimes I do.
Even more remarkable than the announcement of a third film is that it is based on the fifth (!) novel in the series, entitled Sisterhood Forever. So not only was this premise pitched and approved in the world of film, but precedent to that, it was done so in a literary arena, and at least two more times.
They should do a Nova or Cosmos on chaos theory and how it benefits the Traveling Pants franchise.
