"I don't know, I see headlines about Donald [Glover – more on that in a minute] is talking about the storyline, but I certainly don't know anything else," Brie shared during an interview with ET regarding what she was able to share in terms of an update. That said, Brie has been privy to some details on what's to come – but "nothing that I can say publicly." As for one thing that she would like to see Annie retain from the original series run, Brie hopes Annie is still crushing on McHale's Jeff. "I do hope that Annie still has a crush on Jeff because I've always loved playing out that back-and-forth with Joel [McHale]," Brie offered in response to The Wrap, referencing the characters' complicated on-again, off-again story.

During a recent profile/interview with The Hollywood Reporter from earlier this month, Glover had an update and some early intel on the movie's script. When asked about moving forward with the film, Glover shared, "Yeah, [Dan Harmon] told me what he wanted, and I was like, 'This sounds great." From there, Glover offered a few clues as to what the overarching storyline is that gets the gang back together. "It's a college reunion, but Abed [Pudi] is like this big director now – and basically, this is his magnum opus. I'm like, 'This sounds fucking tight,'" Glover added.
