Break out the Bolli Sweetie – it looks like Edina and Patsy (the loveable, over the top, brand loving, champagne guzzling characters that Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley made famous) are coming to the big screen. There is going to be an Absolutely Fabulous movie!
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Jennifer Saunders confirmed that she is planning to start working in a script next year. “I want to write Ab Fab: The Movie. We’d have so much fun, and I’ve thought of a really nice idea. We thought it would be hilarious if [Edina and Patsy] went to a party on an oligarch’s yacht, got drunk, fell asleep and woke up in the middle of the ocean. Everyone else has left, and the ship has been moved on.”
Before Saunders can start writing the script she has to finish working on the Spice Girls stage musical, Viva Forever.
No release date has been set for the movie, however, fans don’t have to wait for the movie to come out to get some new Absolutely Fabulous as the BBC will be airing 3 new TV episodes. Fans can see the first one over Christmas. I can hardly wait sweetie! 🙂
