Father of the Bride‘ Cast Reuniting For Special Event on Netflix Directed by Nancy Meyers. Get ready for a Banks Family (virtual) reunion!

Next up for such an event is the cast of the Father of the Bride 1991 and 1995 films.

The original cast, plus a few guest stars, will be hosting a virtual table read of Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish), Set to appear for the special event are cast members Steve Martin (George Banks), Diane Keaton (Nina Banks), Kieran Culkin (Matty Banks), Kimberly Williams-Paisley (Annie Banks-MacKenzie), George Newbern (Bryan MacKenzie), Martin Short (Franck Eggelhoffer) and writer and director Nancy Meyers. As for the guests stars, well, Netflix is keeping that one a secret until the big event!

The new special was announced by Netflix with a video homage to both the Father of the Bride films along with the caption, “The Banks family is back for a very special event! Premiering [Friday Sept. 25th] at 3pm PST / 6pm EST on Netflix YouTube and Facebook.”

The initial tease from Netflix this week featured a desktop view of George Banks’ computer as he receives an email reminder for a family video chat scheduled on Sept 25th along with the caption, “something is coming.”

The Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) special event is set to take place at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT Friday on Netflix’s YouTube and Facebook pages.
