New storyline details have been confirmed for next year’s Absolutely Fabulous film.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is currently shooting on location in the UK and the south of France.
Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will return as Edina and Patsy in the new feature film, alongside the rest of the original cast, including Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother.
The movie’s official synopsis reads: “Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots.
“Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi.
“Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore!”
Ab Fab first aired in November 1992 and the most recent special aired in July 2012.
The cast will apparently be joined by “a host of A-list stars from the acting, music and fashion worlds”.
