The AbFab ladies have arrived in town to launch their new picture Absolutely Fabulous – The Movie and for both Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders the experience of being on the red carpet at the film’s U.S. premiere was mildly intoxicating.
“It’s special, it’s like a dream, I can’t actually believe it,” said Saunders.
The film, which opened to good reviews in the U.K. earlier this month, features Patsy and Eddy on the run in the south of France after an incident involving the accidental drowning of Kate Moss.
It’s expected that the film will be greeted with much enthusiasm by AbFab‘s American fans. Jennifer Saunders maintains that when the TV series first came out she could discern a difference between the way in which American and British audiences responded to AbFab humor. She says: “I remember coming to America and they’d go, ‘We can’t believe that you drink and smoke that much.’ I think it seemed slightly more outrageous in America than it was felt in Britain.”
There has been talk of a sequel to the new movie. On the red carpet, Jennifer Saunders stated there would be one. But Joanna Lumley interjected with the accusation: “I promise you she lies!”
So, on that score AbFab aficionados will just have to wait to find out more.
