In 2002, Nia Vardalos unleashed a big fat phenomenon with My Big Fat Greek Wedding, a family comedy that bucked its indie roots to become a blockbuster hit with $368M. That led to the launch of a very short-lived TV series, My Big Fat Greek Life, and a belated sequel, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which only made $90M. So is there still an audience out there for more shenanigans based on Vardalos’ own life and upbringing in a huge Greek family full of colorful characters?
The new trailer for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 has arrived, and it finds the Portokalos family finding touching ground in Greece for a family reunion. This time Vardalos has given herself yet another job. Not only has she written the screenplay and returned to play Toula Portokalos, but she is also the director!
This is Vardalos’ first time behind the camera since 2009’s awful I Hate Valentine’s Day.
Vardalos is joined by the returning John Corbett as her husband Ian, with Elena Kampouris as their daughter Paris. Andrea Martin, Lainie Kazan, Louis Mandylor, Gia Carides, and Joey Fatone all return as members of the fam.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 opens in theaters on September 8th.
From writer and director Nia Vardalos, the worldwide phenomenon My Big Fat Greek Wedding is coming back to theaters with a brand-new adventure. Join the Portokalos family as they travel to a family reunion in Greece for a heartwarming and hilarious trip full of love, twists and turns. Opa!
