Patsy And Edina Are Back, Sweetie Dahlings!
Behold! The trailer for the Absolutely Fabulous movie–which we’ve been promised since I think sometime in the mid-90s–is finally here! I don’t normally get too excited for trailers, personally, but seeing as how Patsy and Edina were perhaps two of the most important role models in my life growing up outside of Tallulah Bankhead, Isadora Duncan and June Miller, I’ll make an exception for this one.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “The film will follow Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) on a new adventure that leads them to the Riviera where they seek glamorous asylum after being blamed for an incident at an “uber fashionable launch party.” But once there, the duo looks to make this new way of life permanent as they grow accustomed to the high life.”
The movie will also be bringing back some of the series most beloved characters– Jane Horrocks as Bubble, June Whitfield as Edina’s mother. Oh, and Julia Sawalha as Saffron.
It won’t be in theaters until July 1st, but in the meantime you can always watch old episodes of the series on Hulu, see Jane Horrocks in Little Voice on Netflix, and listen to this Siouxsie and The Banshees cover of “Wheels on Fire” to tide you over.
