Edina and Patsy’s big screen debut has a new release date, darlings.
Fox Searchlight has announced that Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie will open in select U.S. theaters on July 22. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are set to reprise their roles from the hit British sitcom, which premiered in 1992 and ran for three seasons. (A revival ran from 2001 to 2004, and several anniversary specials aired in 2011 and 2012.)
The Ab Fab movie finds Edina and Patsy reeling from “a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party” and decamping to the French Riviera. Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks, and June Whitfield are also all returning as Saffy, Bubble, and Mother. Mandie Fletcher is directing from Saunders’ screenplay, and the film is set to premiere in the U.K. on July 1.
