It's absolutely fabulous news
In one of the newly released shots, a bevvy of fabulous models and designers sip on champagne – think Suki Waterhouse, Jourdan Dunn, and Lily Cole alongside Stella McCartney, Daisy Lowe and Lara Stone all decked out in decadent faux furs, shimmering sequins and ruffles. Simply fabulous, sweetie.
If all those celebrity cameos weren’t enough for you, Kylie Minogue has also recorded the theme song Wheel On Fire and it’s basically the dream.
But the most Ab Fab moment has to be to be Dame Edna Everage submerged in a swimming pool, complete with purple rinse, sparkling diamonds and her iconic over-sized rhinestone glasses.
On top of all that amazingness, Kate Moss in a green sequin Jean Paul Gaultier dress complete with cigarette and champagne glass submerged in a river is just absolutely fabulous (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).
On top of these cameos, the A-list cast reads like a whose who of the fashion world with appearances from Jerry Hall, Gwendoline Christie and Abbey Clancy alongside Alexa Chung, Anya Hindmarch, Jade Parfitt and Poppy Delevingne among many, many others. Does it get any better? We think not.
Earlier this year we were treated to the first look at the movies poster which hinted at the once again bonkers style of Eddie and fabulousness of Patsy. Scheduled to be released in the UK & Ireland on the 1st of July 2016 (only a few months to go, sweetie darling).
Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley have been reunited as the memorable Edina and Patsy, and have no doubt been causing all kinds of havoc as they shot on locations in the UK and the South of France.
‘I am thrilled and excited to finally start filming,’ said Jennifer as shooting began. ‘We are all on the Sanatogen and hoping for the best.’
Jennifer and Joanna will be joined by the rest of the original cast for the movie, including Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother.
In the meantime, we’ll treat ourselves to our favourite Ab Fab quotes. Excited doesn’t even cover it.
