What's crazier than Annie and Nina Banks both getting pregnant (and giving birth) at the same time? Getting the Bankses back on our screens in 2020! Director Nancy Meyers confirmed something is in the works with the beloved cast from Father of the Bride Part I and II via Instagram on Friday, September 11, and fans went wild.
While Meyers' post seemed like it was simply suggesting that Father of the Bride Part I and II would be making their way into our Netflix queues one day soon, the director confirmed in the comments that her news was even more exciting than that.
"I think she's just saying the film's coming to Netflix," one commenter said. "If this is a hint that there's something more in the works, I'm going to have a George Banks level meltdown."
Meyers responded directly with, "Start melting." Melting commenced!
And we're not the only ones. Celebrities from Ina Garten to Lily Aldridge have displayed their enthusiasm for the promise of seeing the cast on-screen in a brand-new way, and all kinds of theories are spinning in the social media universe.
Meyers' post could be an allusion to an upcoming Instagram Live reunion similar to the one she hosted with the cast of The Parent Trap earlier this year. But would it be too much to ask for a Father of the Bride Part III? Even better: a chance to revisit the Colonial Revival home featured in both films. The staircase! The columns! The signature Nancy Meyers-esque kitchen! We want it all.
On Thursday, September 24, Netflix announced via Instagram that 'Father of the Bride: Part 3 (ish)' will be premiering on Friday, September 25 at 6 p.m. ET. You'll be able to watch it on Netflix's YouTube channel and Facebook page.
And surely no movie scene would inspire a more iconic meme than Franck Eggelhoffer responding to a George Banks-level meltdown with, "Welcome to 2020, Mr. Bah-nks."
