The Sequel to Four Weddings and a Funeral Is Doing Exactly What it Should: Focusing on a Wedding
Yes, we do want to see the cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral reunite after 25 years to continue their story - and now we can.
It’s time to get very excited – the Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel is happening. Well, kind of. It’s not going to be a feature-length sequel, but a Comic Relief special for Red Nose Day 2019.
As was done for Love Actually, the group behind Red Nose Day managed to get the original cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral plus director Mike Newell and screenwriter Richard Curtis to reunite and create a short sequel to the forever adored romantic comedy that to this day is one of the best movies you could spend your time watching.
The Four Weddings and a Funeral Sequel Release
It may be hard to believe, but Four Weddings and a Funeral turns 25 in 2019. The actors may have aged, but the high dose of comedy and musings on the ups and downs and sidesteps of life portrayed in the film have not. And the cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral – Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, John Hannah, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rowan Atkinson, David Bower, James Fleet, David Haig, Rupert Vansittart, and more – are all on board with the sequel.
The Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel releases on March 15, 2019 – Red Nose Day in the United Kingdom – and will be 12 minutes long. In the United States, NBC will air the short on May 23, 2019. The story focuses on a wedding, of course, but giving away who is getting married is the biggest spoiler, so no is talking.
The sequel is titled, One Red Nose Day and a Wedding. The timeline for the Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel lines right up with the real world – it takes place 25 years after the film, and we can all recall what happened at the end of Four Weddings and a Funeral: A baby!
Could that child be getting married? Or perhaps a main character finally decides it is time to put a ring on it? Or has someone left the cloth and found love?
The long-awaited Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel will reveal all, in a short and sweet rendition that, who knows, may finally bring a feature-length sequel to the screen. If not, at least the reunion of one of the best ensemble casts to grace the silver screen will help raise money for children living in poverty around the world.
