The announcement imagines George Banks checking his emails. There are messages in his inbox from “Masks-R-Us,” and one reading “Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get worse…”
He then clicks on an email reminding him to join an upcoming family video call on September 25.
Fans of the classic comedy can tune into the reunion on Netflix’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Friday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. ET.
No details have been given so far on which members of the original cast will be joining the virtual event, or whether it will be pre-recorded or live.
The “very special reunion” is in aid of World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that provides meals during times of crisis, such as natural disasters and the Covid-19 pandemic.
Earlier this month, “Father of the Bride” co-writer Nancy Meyers teased a potential reunion. The writer and filmmaker took to Instagram to share a screengrab of the movie’s poster, along with the caption: “If he thought a wedding was a lot, how would he react to 2020? Coming soon to the phone in your hand!”
