Deadline reported that there will be a window between theatrical and streaming availability for the final installment of “Magic Mike.”

Lead star and producer Tatum previously teased that the third “Magic Mike” movie will be bigger, better and sexier than ever. “We’re kind of swinging for the fences — there’s no need for another stripper movie after this movie,” Tatum said. “We’re trying to do a fish-out-of-water story where ‘Pretty Woman’ is a reverse story that ends up with a lot of dancing.”

“Magic Mike’s Last Dance” will be a “pretty bonkers” gender-swapped take on the classic ’90s rom-com, as Tatum previously stated. Producing partner Reid Carolin previously said that “Magic Mike 3” will be about “a woman stuck at a terrible Chippendales-like strip show and then realizing, ‘What the hell am I doing here?'” only to be rescued by Magic. Mike (Tatum). “She has to go down the rabbit hole and ask: What do I really want?,” Carolin added.

“Magic Mike’s Last Dance” marks Tatum’s farewell to the stripper persona fans first encountered on screen in 2012. Since then, the franchise has spawned a star-studded sequel “Magic Mike XXL” and a touring act, “Magic Mike Live.” Tatum assured the audience that the live show will feature a special ode to the famous “water dance” in “Last Dance”.

“I have a crazy dance that opens the movie,” Tatum explained. “We start it on quite a strong level and then at the end, I might do a version of the water dance in the show. There’s a splash in the movie, so it’s real.”

The origins of the third film can be traced back to director Soderbergh, who convinced Tatum to go on one “Last Dance” as Magic Mike.

“I think we chewed all the meat on the bone, by the way,” Tatum told IndieWire. “We didn’t plan to do the latter. Then all of our supporting characters were so good and so fun that we felt, ‘Let’s do another movie and give those characters more real estate that we didn’t have before.’ When we did that, we felt like there was no other story. Let’s get out of jail.”
