Twenty-five years later, “Four Weddings and a Funeral” finally got the follow-up fans have been craving.
As part of Thursday’s “Red Nose Day Special” for charity, writer Richard Curtis brought the original film’s cast back together for a mini-sequel in which new additions Lily James and Alicia Vikander tied the knot.
James played Miranda, the daughter of Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell’s beloved characters Charles and Carrie.
The 14-minute “One Red Nose Day and a Wedding” reveals that after the famous non-proposal ending of “Four Weddings”, Charles and Carrie have remained together but still unmarried.
Meanwhile, fans learned that Vikander’s Faith is actually the daughter of Kristen Scott Thomas’ character Fiona, who had pined for Charles in the original film.
Anna Chancellor’s Henrietta, who was left at the altar by Charles was also back and held no grudges, telling him, “Getting dumped by you is the luckiest day of my life. Once you realize you don’t have to marry for love, everything is much easier.”
“Four Weddings” fans also have more to look forward to, with a TV adaptation on the way from Mindy Kaling and starring Nathalie Emmanuel.
