Grandfather of the Bride?

A quarter-century after Father of the Bride, Part II (1995), which was a sequel to Father of the Bride (1992), the cast will reunite for free today, September 25, at 6 pm ET over Netflix’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.

That means Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Martin Short, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Kieran Culkin, George Newbern “and a few special guests,” all from writer/director Nancy Meyers (It’s Complicated, Private Benjamin) in a show benefittng World Central Kitchen.

Why is Netflix involved, since neither of the two previous Brides pictures, nor even the 1950 original, are currently on the streaming service?

Good question! Is tonight’s reunion a teaser for Netflix producing an actual Father of the Bride Part 3, directed by Nancy Meyers? Or maybe Grandfather of the Bride? Perhaps the 1992 and 1995 films are coming to Netflix in October? None of the preceding?

To learn the answer, tune in later today on YouTube, Facebook or below!
