Is it possible that Gabrielle Union is getting set to put on her Clover cheerleading costume once more?
The actress, who is now 49 years old, has hinted that there may be a sequel to the iconic teen comedy Bring It On, which was released in 2000.
In that film, she played Kirsten Dunst’s school rival Isis.
Gabrielle said in response to a tweet from a fan who was commemorating the film’s 22nd anniversary that “Hmmmm so Isis might have a teenager #BringItOn.”
Fans, of course, did not take this news lightly, as evidenced by the flood of comments they posted on Twitter with phrases such as
“SO YOU’RE SAYING THERE IS A CONTINUATION?!?!!!!!!!!!
we are in desperate need of a clover-themed #BringItOn.” Another user commented, “Please don’t mess with my feelings; we require a proper continuation.
“Pop sensation Chloe Bailey even tweeted, I want to be apart” in an attempt to get in on the action and offer her acting abilities.
Gabrielle, who became famous alongside Kirsten due to their roles in Bring It On, is the mother of Dwyane Wade’s children Zaya,
who is 14 years old, and Kaavia, who is 3 years old. On the other hand, Gabrielle admitted not too long ago that she has some second thoughts about her part in the movie.
She expressed concerns about “muzzling” her character Isis during an appearance on Good Morning America.
She also wrote an apology letter to Isis in her book “You Got Anything Stronger?
Both Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union had roles in the film “Bring It On,” which was released in 2002.
Isis finds out that her team’s choreography has been stolen by an opposing team in the movie, which is something that would make anyone understandably outraged,
but Gabrielle has stated that she does not feel she can play it in that manner.
“It’s not okay for black girls to get furious,” the speaker said.
“I wasn’t even remotely angry, so there was no need for me to silence her,” she clarified.
“I had silenced her and turned her into this kind and honourable leader, but in that film, I played the role of the antagonist.
After going through all of that transformation for a character, I suddenly became aware that I was also going through it with myself.
I wasn’t letting myself experience the full breadth of my human potential.
Gabrielle mentioned that taking this into consideration would have prompted her to alter her performance in some way.
She elaborated, “I would have allowed her full humanity, and part of being able to feel wrath when harmed is part of being a full human.
“I would have allowed her full humanity,” she said.
“When you don’t truly allow yourself to feel your whole spectrum of emotions and you mute your own emotions,
it enables other people to say, ‘Maybe what I did wasn’t that horrible.’ I would have directed all of my rage toward her.

Gabrielle’s commitment to the idea of a sequel is not in question, despite the fact that she may harbour certain regrets regarding the way in which she managed the first production.
Even before she sent the cryptic tweet, she had already planned to discuss potential plot points for a sequel to Zoom with Kirsten and director Peyton Reed in August of 2020.
“The influence that this movie had and continues to have, that’s wonderful,” Gabrielle remarked after 20 years had passed since the release of the film.
“So, whatever it is that we may one day come up with, I mean, Kirsten, maybe we’re like co-heads of the PTA. Whatever it is, we’ll figure it out. I am unable to say.”
