Whether or not you’re looking forward to “Fuller House” or new episodes of “Gilmore Girls,” the current TV revival trend is allowing fans to reconnect with characters they thought they’d never seen again. And for fans of the British comedy hit “Absolutely Fabulous,” a chance to see Edina and Patsy on the big screen is exciting stuff.
A breezy good time is promised in the first teaser trailer for “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie,” which sees the return of Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders to their lead roles, with Mandie Fletcher (who helmed episodes of the TV series) directing. And according to the official synopsis, this may be a cameo heavy movie:
Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make permanent their escape and live the high life forever more!
In true Ab Fab style, the cast will be joined by a host of A-list stars from the acting, music and fashion worlds.
“Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” opens on July 1st. Watch below.
