Here’s a new behind-the-scenes featurette from Malcolm D. Lee’s sequel to The Best Man, titled The Best Man Holiday, which sees the return of the stars from the first film, including Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall, all reprising their roles in a story that is set 15 years after the original.
When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, 15 years after the first film, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited.
The featurette embedded below updates viewers on where key characters currently are in their lives, since the first film, and also drops a few hints as to what audiences can expect in this sequel, beyond what we already know via the sparse logline above.
Universal Pictures has set the release date for the sequel for November 15, 2013 (exactly 2 weeks from today) in what has been a crowded fall for black films.
Given the black cinema classic that the first film has since become, this sequel should be a hit for director Lee.

Watch the featurette below. I suspect there’ll be others released over the next month:
