Tyler Perry’s most beloved character is returning in a new movie for Netflix.
After unveiling some first-look photos earlier this month, on Wednesday, Netflix debuted the trailer for “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming”.
In the film, the Hollywood mogul reprises the role of the no-nonsense grandma he’s played in such movies as “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” and “Boo! A Madea Halloween”.
This time out, Perry won’t be the only cross-dressing actor in the film; he’ll be joined by Brendan O’Carroll as Agnes Brown, protagonist of hit Britcom “Mrs. Brown’s Boys”.
In the trailer, Agnes shows up at the front door doing the “Wakanda Forever” salute, prompting Made to slam the door in her face.
“Madea’s back — hallelujer!” declares the Netflix synopsis.
“Tyler Perry returns with everyone’s favorite character in ‘Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming’, the newest film in the Madea franchise set to debut on Netflix,” the synopsis adds. “Writer-director-producer Perry stars in the film that centres around Madea’s great-grandson’s college graduation, though the celebratory moment hits a halt as hidden secrets and family drama threaten to destroy the happy homecoming. The film features all-stars of the Madea franchise, including Tamela Mann (Cora), David Mann (Mr. Brown), Cassi Davis Patton (Aunt Bam) as well as a guest appearance from iconic Irish actor Brendan O’Carroll, who matches Madea’s comedic prowess as Agnes Brown.”
Perry first revealed he was bringing Madea out of retirement in a tweet he issued back in June.
