Yes, yes, and more YES. In what is probably the most exciting news on this bleak Tuesday, it’s just been announced that our favorite boozy Brits and fashionistas (i.e. the oh-so-fab Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon) are back for more — and this time, it’s more than just a special, it’s a whole damn movie!
Deadline reports that Jennifer Saunders, creator and star of Absolutely Fabulous, is penning a film version of the smash hit show once she finishes up work on the Spice Girls stage musical Viva Forever. (As a side note, I’d completely forgotten they were making a freakin’ Spice Girls musical. I seriously need to find a nice gentleman with British citizenship who I can marry so I can spend every day at the theater sobbing and eating scones.)
Ab Fab: The Movie will begin with the girls waking up after a bender, alone on a massive, drifting yacht belonging to some oligarch (that’s a Greek government official for those of you unschooled in all things European bureaucracy). Their cell phones can’t get a signal, and all they have is each other. My greatest hope of hopes is that they have their other best friends on hand: vodka and nicotine.
Anyway, I can’t wait for this. In the meantime, we still have a few new episodes of the series expected to air early next year. Get ready, kids!
