Variety announced today that World of Wonder is developing a comedy feature film titled Drag Queens on a Plane starring our very own Mama RuPaul!
On the maiden voyage of Glamazonian Airways, RuPaul has packed the flight with drag’s finest. But some evil trolls who don’t believe in loving yourself are on board and will do their damnedest to bring the plane down.
Sounds pretty bonkers!
Says World of Wonder co-founders Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato:
“We have seen an overwhelming global demand for scripted and unscripted content illuminating the stories within drag culture. What was previously thought of as niche is now undeniably mainstream. World of Wonder will continue to bring meaningful, fabulous, filled-with-love entertainment to fans both on screen and off.”
Drag Queens on a Plane joins a lineup that includes the upcoming Drag Race Thailand, a Drag Race format extension with a new set of judges and queens. The debut season is hosted by fashion stylist Art-Araya In-dra. The show, which recently went into production, will air on LINE TV and is produced locally by Kantana Group.
And don’t forget:
World of Wonder also plans to bring its popular convention, RuPaul’s DragCon, to international territories in 2019. The convention welcomed over 80,000 attendees in Los Angeles and New York City in 2017. The next DragCon will be held in Los Angeles on May 11-13, 2018.
