Original Article, 10/20: Fashion lovers rejoice: the beloved ’90s British sitcom, Absolutely Fabulous, is finally making its long-awaited return. Reprising their roles from the BBC TV series, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are back in action as Edina and Patsy in the first official image released from Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie. Unsurprisingly, the series’ fab leading ladies are toasting champagne while sailing on a yacht. The film is set to be released next year, Variety reports.
The movie’s plot will follow that of the TV series, following Patsy and Edina, a disgruntled fashion editor and a PR agent, respectively, living a life of drinking, partying, shopping and of course, complaining. The self-destructive women will be joining alongside the original TV cast including Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother. In the film, Patsy and Edina get themselves into a mess as they are blamed for an incident that occurs at a major fashion launch party-and then must flee from the media and paparazzi to the French Rivieria.
In true Ab Fab style, Entertainment Weekly also reports that the film is lining up a cast of celebrities from the fashion, acting and music worlds. The TV series notably included special guest stars over the years, including the likes of Naomi Campbell, Twiggy, Debbie Harry, Kate Moss, Elton John, Stella McCartney, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Helena Bonham Carter and many more.
