The original film had its theatrical release in 1992 where it starred Whoopi Goldberg as Deloris, a Las Vegas lounge singer who witnesses her mob boss boyfriend commit murder.
Deloris is placed in a nunnery in witness protection, hiding under the identity of Sister Mary Clarence. Maggie Smith, Kathy Najimy, Wendy Makkena, Harvey Keitel, and the late Bill Nunn also starred in the movie.
Due to its success, it was immediately followed-up by a sequel, Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, in 1993, and even inspired a Broadway musical.
