The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, is in the works with the original main cast all set to return on screen.

“I’m not repeating myself, we’ll start the new film in Australia, but by God, we’re going on one helluva journey,” the director of the celebrated 90s movie Stephan Elliott told Deadline.

“The original cast is on board, I’ve got a script that everybody likes, we’re still working out deals. … It’s happening,” Mr Elliott said.

The news comes 30 years after the movie, starring Hugo Weaving, Terence Stamp and Guy Pearce, was released at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.

Priscilla became a surprise hit, with its positive portrayal of LGBT characters winning audiences over worldwide and lifting it to the status of a beloved classic, at a time where drag artistry remained largely invisible to mainstream audiences.
