Netflix Announces Father Of The Bride Reunion Coming This Week

Netflix Announces Father Of The Bride Reunion Coming This Week

The Father of the Bride cast are reuniting for a special event 25 years since the first film aired. What. A. Throwback.

The 1991 rom-com, starring Steve Martin, Diane Keaton and Kimberly Williams, was a major hit when it first landed in cinemas and has gone on to be a cult classic.

Now, a surprise reunion special on Netflix will see all the cast reunite for the first time in decades.

The streamer announced the exciting news on its social channels with a short teaser clip and the words "something is coming". You can watch it here:

While cryptic, we did learn that the special is in aid of the World Central Kitchen, a charity which works to feed those in need in times of crisis (such as the pandemic). "25 years later, the Banks family returns for a very special event," it says in the teaser.

It's not yet clear if all original cast members will be returning for the reunion - which will likely be help on video call - but we can expect to see Steve Martin (who played the eponymous father of the bride, George Banks), Diane Keaton (Nina Banks), Kimberly Williams (Annie Banks), Kieran Culkin (Matty Banks) and George Newburn (Bryan MacKenzie) make appearances.

It's not yet clear if it will be scripted or unscripted.

In the classic family movie, George Banks, a businessman and owner of an sports shoe company Side Kicks, is knocked for six when he finds out his 22-year-old daughter Annie is engaged. Stubborn about his feelings, George does not want to give her away.

Throughout the movie, the doting father soon learns to live with his new son-in-law Bryan MacKenzie and accepts his daughter's happiness. It's heartwarming stuff.

Father of the Bride fans were teased with the reunion a few weeks ago when producer Nancy Meyers hinted a project was in the works.

"If he thought a wedding was a lot, how would he react to 2020? Coming soon to the phone in your hand," she said.
