You thought Zoolander 2 had a lot of star cameos? Just wait. A truly ridiculous number of celebs are confirmed to pop up in the new Ab Fab movie. The film version of the beloved sitcom reunites Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as the hard-drinking fashionistas Edina and Patsy, along with a few Americans and a “WHO’S THAT?” of big name Brit stars.
Joan Collins, Dame Edna Everage, Kate Moss, Chris Colfer, fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier and comedian Robert Webb. Plus, Dawn French, Game of Thrones & Star Wars‘ Gwendoline Christie, DJ Nick Grimshaw, musicians Ella Eyre, Foxes and La Roux, Brit TV personalities Rylan Clark, Christopher Biggins, Graham Norton and Jeremy Paxman, Wowlwebrity Daniel Lismore and a slew of models including Abbey Clancy, Daisy Lowe, Suki Waterhouse and Alexa Chung. Chung said on Instagram,
“I still can’t believe I got to share the same batch of oxygen as Edina.“
And Suki gushed,
“I spent a good portion of my childhood dressed up as Patsy and Eddie drinking Ribena from champagne glasses. I would have fainted if you told me this would ever happen.“
This is what we know, plot-wise…
“Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. But when they are blamed for a major incident at an fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore!”
It’ll be released on 1 July in the UK, no word on the American release. No new trailer yet, just this teaser. Watch below.
