Teaser Watch: Edina and Patsy Luxuriate on the Beach in 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie'

Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are coming to the big screen, and a teaser offers a peak at what the tremendously entertaining twosome are up to.

A clip promoting “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” features the best friends boozing it up on a scenic beach with some gentlemen company. The waters look pretty calm, but knowing these two, it won’t be long before drama crashes onto the shore. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, the movie finds Edina and Patsy “reeling from a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party and decamping to the French Riviera.” 

For the uninitiated: “Absolutely Fabulous” was a BBC sitcom — created by Saunders — that premiered in 1992 and aired for three seasons. But thanks to popular demand a revival of the series was launched, running from 2001 to 2004. The last time we caught up with the lovable trainwrecks was an anniversary special that aired in 2012. 

Saunders penned the script for “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.” The comedy is directed by Mandie Fletcher, who helmed three episodes of the “Ab Fab” revival in the early aughts.

Rebel Wilson (“How to Be Single”), Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”) and Cara Delevigne (“Paper Towns”) co-star. 

“Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” hits theaters in the U.K. July 1 and the U.S. July 22.
