BGN’s DaVette See caught up with “Girls Trip” stars Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith in New Orleans on a warm summer afternoon on the eve of Essence Festival 2017, to chat about the soon-to-be-released comedy.

When four lifelong friends—Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish—travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.  James Lopez, head of motion pictures for Will Packer Productions, and Preston Holmes, executive producer.
