"We got a script — you heard it here first," she reiterated, before adding: "I've read the script, and it's so funny.

"I hope that Annie hasn't changed too much because I loved her just the way she was."

This is the most promising news Community fans have heard yet, with Britta actor Jacobs telling Entertainment Weekly in 2020: "I think if there was a movie, we would all do it. I don't want to speak for everyone. I would do the movie, absolutely.

"I feel very lucky to have gotten that pilot. I mean, I get so sentimental when I talk about this stuff because, for all of us, this could've gone a different way. I could have not gotten the part. I think it was a real special combination of people and time."

"But, I think everyone's coming back. So far, we're pretty good, and I think that will happen."

The Community movie currently has no release date, but it will stream on Peacock.
