The first trailer for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 has arrived!
Get ready to say “Opa!” once more as we are served up another helping of the Portokalos family in the latest glimpse of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3.” The inimitable Nia Vardalos, known to fans as the loveable Toula Portokalos, not only graces the screen but also takes up the reins as the writer and director for this much-anticipated third helping of the franchise.
The plot thickens as Toula and her larger-than-life family embark on a heartfelt journey to Greece. Their mission? To follow the breadcrumb trail of her dearly departed father’s heritage. A poignant tribute, considering the real-life passing of Michael Constantine, the talented actor who brought Gus, Toula’s father, to life on screen.
Accompanying Toula on this familial pilgrimage is her hubby, Ian, played by the charismatic John Corbett. The traveling party is anything but small, as Andrea Martin, Gia Carides, Louis Mandylor, Elena Kampouris, Maria Vacratsis, Joey Fatone, and Lainie Kazan all jump on board for the ride. And if the trailer’s anything to go by, this trip promises to be a Greek odyssey of epic proportions, ending with a family reunion that’s as Greek as it gets.
The movie magic doesn’t stop there, though. Power couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson return as producers of the movie, a role they’ve reprised since the story’s humble beginnings as Vardalos’ one-woman play.
The first film, released back in 2002, was nothing short of a box-office supernova, raking in a cool $368 million across the globe. Not to mention it put Vardalos in the spotlight, earning her an Oscar nod for best screenplay and a Golden Globe nomination for best actress.
The franchise didn’t stop at the big screen, though. It spilled over into the small screen with the fleeting TV series, “My Big Fat Greek Life,” in 2003, and in 2016, the big screen called again with “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.”
So mark your calendars, folks! “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3” will be serving up more laughs, love, and a whole lot of feta in theaters starting Sept. 8. Don’t be a ‘malaka’ and miss it!
