The minute-long teaser shows Jennifer Saunders’ Eddie and Joanna Lumley’s Patsy clinking glasses to the sound of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg’s ‘Je T’aime… Moi Non Plus’. Watch below.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie opens in UK cinemas on July 1. Alongside Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, fellow original cast members Julia Sawalha (Saffy), Jane Horrocks (Bubble) and June Whitfield (Mother) return. Kathy Burke, Celia Imrie, Helen Lederer and Harriet Thorpe have also reprised their guest roles from the original series.
Joining them in cameo roles are Kate Moss, Rebel Wilson, Harry Styles, Lulu, Emma Bunton, Joan Collins and Cara Delevingne. Korean-American comedian Margaret Cho recently accused the film of racism for casting Scottish The Krankees actress Janette Tough as a male Japanese designer called Huki Muki.
Created and written by Jennifer Saunders, Absolutely Fabulous debuted on BBC One in 1992 and has followed the lives of PR guru Edina Monsoon and magazine editor Patsy Stone for 39 episodes. The show last returned for a series of three specials airing on Christmas Day 2011, New Year’s Day 2012 and July 23, 2012 to coincide with the London Olympics.
