Whoopi Goldberg Will Not Be Getting Back In The Habit For 'Sister Act 3'

Disney has confirmed that 'Sister Act 3' is going ahead -- but Whoopi Goldberg won't be reprising her role as Sister Mary Clarence.

It's been 25 years since we last caught up with the all-singing, all-dancing troupe of San-Franciscan nuns -- but you might be a little disappointed if you were expecting Goldberg to lead the boisterous Catholic choir once again.

The Sister Act 3 project has been greenlit for Disney's new streaming service -- Disney + -- but the reboot is apparently going to include a fresh new cast.

“It is our understanding that this is not a continuation and Whoopi is not involved,” a rep for Goldberg told EW.

There's no word yet who Disney will cast to sing a rousing version of "Salve Maria" or lead a truly angelic cover of "I Will Follow Him" but some fans are hoping Tiffany Haddish will pop on some rosary beads for the role.

Goldberg hinted earlier this year that the Sister Act franchise would be heading in a new direction in an interview with Good Morning Britain.

“We’ve been all over Disney begging and they’ve decided that they’re going to go in a different direction with Sister Act. So it won’t be Sister Act 3, it’ll be a brand-new rendition of Sister Act,” Goldberg explained.

“And I guess I’ll walk through a scene and that’s how they’ll say I was part of it.”
