RuPaul Will Fly The Fierce Skies In “Drag Queens On A Plane” Disaster Movie

It will be the "most glamorous disaster movie in herstory!"

Today, World of Wonder, the prolific production company behind RuPaul’s Drag Race, announced a new scripted feature film, Drag Queens on a Plane (AKA: There are Too Many Drag Queens on this Mothertucking Plane), starring the queen of all queens, RuPaul.

The movie will be executive produced by RuPaul, along with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato and Tom Campbell from World of Wonder.

Drag Queens on a Plane is set on the maiden voyage of Glamazonian Airways, as Ru has packed the flight with drag’s biggest names. But it turns out some evil trolls are looking to sabotage the flight and send all of those fabulous queens crashing to the ground. Will the girls be able to thwart the terrorists’ evil plans?

We are getting some serious Airport ’77 vibes from that plot description and we could not be more excited. Will Ru be serving eleganza down the aisle as a fierce flight attendant or will he be busy up in the plane’s cockpit? Something tells us that Ru will be wearing multiple hats—and wigs—as the face of Glamazonian Airways.

Drag Queens on a Plane is just the latest acting role for RuPaul, who was also recently featured on Broad City, Girlboss, and Hurricane Bianca.

If that’s not enough drag for you, World of Wonder also announced that the Chilean version of Drag Race, The Switch Drag Race, will be available for the first time in the U.S. on their streaming platform, WOW Presents Plus. Along with news of an international edition of DragCon coming in 2019.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
