Tia Carrere states that she would be on board for Wayne World 3. The Hawaiian actress co-starred in the original Wayne's World film, and reprised her role as Cassandra for Wayne’s World 2. Twenty-five years after the sequel, Carrere is hoping for a third installment.
Based on the popular Saturday Night Live sketch, Wayne’s World was directed by Penelope Spheeris. Prior, 1980 movie The Blue Brothers marked the first SNL sketch to be adapted into a feature film. By 1992, Wayne World’s became the second big screen SNL adaptation, and launched the feature film career of Mike Myers. In the comedy, Myers stars as Wayne Campbell and Dana Carvey portrays his sidekick, Garth Algar. Together, they host the public access show “Wayne’s World” and eventually sell the rights to a producer, played by Rob Lowe. Meanwhile, Wayne begins a relationship with Cassandra, the singer of a local band. Cassandra is portrayed by the aforementioned Carrere.
On the YouTube show Popcorn Talk, Carrere recently addressed the possibility of Wayne’s World 3. During the conversation, she admits that she never saw the original “Wayne’s World” SNL sketch before reading for a role, but was intrigued by the script’s inclusion of lyrics from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” most notably the line “Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango.” From there, the conversation shifts to “movie number 3” and whether Carrere would be interested. The actress states, “Of course I would be on board! Are you kidding?” The host then questions Carrere about a possible Cassandra storyline involving Wayne and Garth, prompting her to say, “if they're still living in a basement somewhere, it's just sad.” Later, Carrere says, “let’s figure it out,” and sparks a call to action for screenwriters Bonnie and Terry Turner, both of whom co-wrote Wayne’s World and Wayne’s World 2 with Myers.

Over the past 25 years, Carrere has maintained a consistent career in both television and feature films. However, the actress’ most notable mainstream roles came during the ‘90s and early 2000s, as she starred in James Cameron’s True Lies and later starred in the Canadian TV series Relic Hunter. By 2006, Carrere became a reality TV star upon being cast in the second season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. In 2012, she was cast on NBC’s The Apprentice, which was famously hosted by Donald Trump. Now, Carrere seems ready to reignite her mainstream film career with Wayne’s World 3.
Considering the pop culture legacy of the Wayne’s World franchise, a third film does seem likely. Still, the sequel barely surpassed its $40 million budget at the box office. So, for Wayne’s World 3 to happen, it would need to align with current trends.
