‘Father of the Bride’ Is Back(ish)!


19 years ago, the 90s family-favorite film Father of the Bride was released. This week, Netflix confirmed that we will be getting a Father of the Bride Part 3(ish). Netflix announced on Wednesday that the film’s original cast will be getting back together for a reunion. Originally, it was thought to be something similar to the zoom readings we have seen with The Princess Bride, but a recent tweet from star Steve Martin claims that it will be an actual mini-movie. The special will air tonight (September 25) at 3 pm PST/6 pm EST on Netflix, YouTube, and Facebook and will benefit World Central Kitchen.

Father of the Bride starred a selection of popular names including Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams (now Kimberly Williams-Paisley), Kieran Culkin, George Newbern, and Martin Short. The film told the story of George Banks, a father who is struggling to accept that his 22-year-old daughter, Annie, is marrying a man she met only months earlier and to that end, interferes with plans and almost ends up ruining the wedding. The film was a huge box-office success and saw a sequel in 1995 followed by rumors of a third film which had yet to be seen until now. This special is set to be helmed by Nancy Meyers who co-wrote the first two films, so hopes are high for the special — particularly after Steve Martin shared the following trailer on Twitter:

Whatever this special brings, fans of the movie can look forward to it as something that holds true to the spirit of the original. Be sure to tune in tonight on the Netflix YouTube channel or Facebook for this special event.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
