After months of rumours and hints and basically just a rollercoaster of emotions for any fans, it has been confirmed that Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, is going to happen.
Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are reuniting in order to film the highly anticipated film over the next several weeks. The release date is expected to be sometime in 2016.
Which really isn’t that far away- as we keep reminding ourselves.
Multiple cast members are set make their return: Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble, and June Whitfield as Mother. There is also some A-List cameos to come, naturally.
No big names have been revealed as of yet, but fans have been promised there will be some downright fabulous moments. We expect nothing less.
The premise of the film assures us that Edina and Patsy are still “oozing glitz and glamour” and living the high life they are so accustomed to- hence the duo appearing on a yacht in the first image to be released.
However, things don’t go entirely to plan: “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.”
So off they flee (penniless, mind you) to the French Riviera to escape the stress of it all.
The Mirror reported earlier this year that Jennifer said the script took her 20 years to write.
We’re hoping there will be more of this:
That’s all we ever wanted really.
