Can you believe it’s been 25 years since the release of the first original Sister Act movie?

In celebration of this milestone, some members of the original cast got together to perform iconic song, I Will Follow Him.

Whoopi Goldberg, who played Deloris Van-Cartier said: ‘I’m ready to get the reunion started!’

‘I don’t know that we’ve had a reunion at all… but it was really kind of extraordinary. We’ve been doing a little bit of rehearsing and it was very wonderful,’ she added.

The original version of the song was the finale in Sister Act. Watch it below:

The special performance featured a message from superstar Maggie Smith, who played the Reverend Mother Superior.

‘I can’t believe it’s been 25 years’

Smith said: ‘I can’t believe this is happening and it was 25 years ago!

‘I feel I must be the oldest nun left – every single nun was wonderful. I have such fond memories of when we did those crazy, crazy, crazy films,’ she jokes.

She added: ‘We laughed and laughed and laughed.’

Goldberg joked: ‘I couldn’t believe she wanted to do the movie! I said: “Maggie Smith, what are you doing here?”

‘She said: “Darling, I have to eat!”‘ Goldberg said.
