The much anticipated trailer for ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2‘ has finally been released. The sequel is based 13 years after the original film and is centred once more around the much loved Portokalos family. ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ was released in 2002 and made $368 million at the box-office globally, setting the record as the biggest romantic comedy of all time; meaning the expectations for the sequel are high to say the least.
Universal Pictures have finally released the official trailer, which gives fans a good idea of what to expect. The plot centres around Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos) and Ian Miller (John Corbett), who are still lovingly married with a daughter. Their daughter is played by American film and television actress Elena Kampouri. As the plot unfolds we learn that she is applying for distant colleges, to be freed of her over-protective and over-bearing Greek family.
As for the much anticipated second wedding, well it turns out that Toula’s parents, played by Lainie Kazan and Michael Constantine aren’t (technically) married to each other and the film centres around them tying the knot a second time (officially this time).
Returning also for the sequel are Andrea Martin, Louis Mandylor and Gia Carides. New characters include John Stamos and Alex Wollf. Kirk Jones directs this new chapter, which Nia Vardalos once again wrote; Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goertzman are back to produce.
The long-awaited sequel is set for release on March 25, 2016. Watch the official trailer, here…
