Now, 17 years later, one August 29, 2017, the world is about to receive another present from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Beacon Pictures: Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack, the 6th movie in the franchise.
After seeing the first five films in the series about 50 times each, I’m thrilled to finally be adding another into the mix!
Featuring Degrassi: The Next Generation‘s Cristine Prosperi, Dance Academy and The Fosters‘ Jordan Rodrigues, Vikings‘ Sophie Vavasseur, and the one-of-a-kind Vivica A. Fox, the latest Bring It On is set to be yet another worldwide sensation.
What aspect of the cheer world will we be experiencing this time around? Let Universal Pictures’ official summary explain:
Vivica A. Fox makes her Bring it On debut as Cheer Goddess, the Internet’s most popular “Cheer-lebrity.” When Destiny (Prosperi), captain of three-time national champions “The Rebels,” is challenged to a global cheer showdown by an edgy new team called “The Truth,” the Cheer Goddess organizes a virtual battle for squads from all around the world. It seems like the whole world wants to take down Destiny and her team, and they just might succeed, unless Density can rise to the challenge, set her ego aside and figure out who her real friends are.
If just reading about the gloriousness to come this August wasn’t enough, here’s the first teaser trailer to get you even more pumped!
While you might *just* be hearing about this sequel, I’ve been begging for it since the fifth one came out back in 2009 with Christina Milian and Rachele Brooke Smith and the cheer gods let me know (via Cris Prosperi’s Instagram) last December that they heard my prayers…
I’m a big fan of Cris’ from her time on DTNG and Open Heart, which is why I follow her on all social platforms. When I saw this post of hers in my feed last year, my jaw dropped. Then I started a deep-dive on the Internet for more information about this soon-to-come movie. There wasn’t much info, but Bring It On franchise choreographer (including this upcoming film), Tony Gonzalez’s Instagram had the most content about the new movie.

Little by little, week by week, month by month, I started to get more info about the cast and eventually the release month. Now I have all the information, and I’m even more excited than I was before. The number one thing that amplified my excitement?
I’ve loved him since watching Dance Academy years ago, then The Fosters, and Breaking Through. He was nowhere to be found in Tony’s Instagram posts. He’s the well-kept secret of Bring It On 6 that I’m so happy to finally have discovered.
With all the secrets out about the cast (yes!!), here’s the lowdown on some of the crew:
As mentioned, the talented Tony Gonzalez is the choreographer, yet again, which means that the cheer routines will be top-notch and incredible.
The film was directed by Robert Adetuyi, who also directed (and wrote) the You Got Served sequel, which I, of course, watched and loved. He even wrote the classic Stomp The Yard. There isn’t a dance or cheer movie that I haven’t seen, clearly.
To top it all off, the film was written by none other than Alyson Fouse, who wrote Bring It On 3-5, as well. Oh, and Honey 2. So, that’s awesome.
With a fun and talented team both behind and in front of the camera, Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack is bound to be just as cheertastic as we all want it to be!
Mark your calendars! You’ll be able to catch the latest Bring It On on DVD, Digital HD and OnDemand on August 29, 2017!
