Donald Glover Confirms Script for ‘Community’ Movie Is Finished

In anticipation of the film adaptation of the hit show “Community,” actor Donald Glover confirmed the film’s script is fully written. Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, stars as Troy Barnes in "Community."

The Classic Show Is Done Putting Pen to Paper

Community actor Donald Glover has confirmed that the script of the upcoming film adaptation is complete.

“Community” Is Off To The Big Screen

According to a report from Entertainment Tonight, actor Donald Glover (also known as Childish Gambino) gave a promising update on the film of his show Community, in which he portrays Troy Barnes. Glover confirmed that the script writing for the movie Community has finished. Despite this confirmation, Glover reminded them that he has yet actually to read the script in its entirety, yet he knows that it will be good. This announcement comes over a year after the film adaptation was first announced. Lastly, the release date for the film has yet to be confirmed, meaning fans will have to wait.

What is the History of the “Community” Movie? 

While this is reassuring for the show’s fanbase, the film has had a rocky production for the past few years. The Community movie started out as a joke about the show getting “six seasons and a movie” that turned into a fan campaign.

In anticipation of the film adaptation of the hit show “Community,” actor Donald Glover confirmed the film’s script is fully written. Ken Jeong stars as Ben Chang, Joel McHale stars as Jeff Winger, Dani Pudi as Abed Nadir, Gillian Jacobs as Brit Perry, Yvette Nicole Brown as Shirley Bennett, Alison Brie as Annie Edison, Donald Glover as Troy Barnes, and Chevy Chase stars as Pierce Hawthorne in "Community."

Glover finally pitched the idea himself during a virtual cast meeting in 2020. While Joel McHale, who played Jeff Winger, confirmed the movie would soon begin filming in 2023, these plans were put on hold by the SAG-AFTRA strike. Additionally, NBC Universal executive Susan Rovner gave the film her seal of approval.

Can Community Work as a Movie 

Given Community’s acclaim, there is little doubt that a film adaptation of the show would work. First airing in 2009 on NBC and concluding in 2015, Community has become one of the most widely praised comedy series in the modern era. Coming from acclaimed Rick and Morty writer Dan Harmon, the show also stars Allison Brie, Dani Pudi, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong, and others. Given that the show managed to last for a total of 110 episodes across six seasons, the show has proven its reputation. As such, the show has earned its place on the big screen to give fans a final sendoff.

Audiences will find Community on both Netflix and Hulu.
