Fans of the drunkenly comic misadventures of Absolutely Fabulous‘s Edwina and Patsy will want to circle July 22 on their calendars as that is the date that Fox Searchlight has set for the release of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.
The entire cast of the cult British sitcom – Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks and June Whitfield – will be returning.
Here is the studio’s plot synopsis for the film and the teaser trailer for the film released last week.
Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) 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. Blamed for a major incident at an uber 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 forever more!
