The 'Father of the Bride' reunion is the most 2020 thing ever

By Rachelle  /  26 Sep 2020 (Saturday)

The cast of the 1991 Father of the Bride reunited on-screen for the Netflix special Father of the Bride Part 3-ish, with a little help from some very famous guests!

Father of the Bride, a remake of the 1950 original movie of the same name, tells the story of George Banks (Steve Martin), who has to come to terms with his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) getting married and moving out. Diane Keaton plays his wife, Nina.

The reunion, introduced by Reese Witherspoon, was to benefit the World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing meals to communities affected by disasters, such as the coronavirus pandemic. 

Called together by the Banks’ son, Matty (Kieran Culkin), for a special wedding announcement, the family gathered for a Zoom call. Along with Martin, Keaton, Williams-Paisley and Culkin, George Newbern and Martin Short reprised their roles as Annie’s husband Bryan MacKenzie and over-the-top European wedding planner Franck Eggelhoffer, respectively.

Newcomers included Georgie (Ben Platt) and Megan (Florence Pugh), as the all grown up MacKenzie’s children, Matty's fiancé Rachel (Alexandra Shipp), and Robert De Niro as Rachel’s father, James.
