Netflix announced on Twitter that a “Father of the Bride” reunion is headed our way. The streaming service posted a short teaser video, with George Banks (played in the film by Steve Martin) checking his emails. There are messages in his inbox from “Masks-R-Us,” and one reading “Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get worse…” He then clicks on an email reminding him to join an upcoming family video call on September 25.
The 1991 movie, which was a remake of the 1950 original of the same name, featured Steve Martin playing George Banks, a father struggling to come to terms with the idea of letting his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) get married. Diane Keaton played his wife, Nina.
Fans of the classic comedy can tune into the reunion on Netflix’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Friday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. ET. The “very special reunion” is in aid of World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that provides meals during times of crisis, such as natural disasters and the Covid-19 pandemic.
