It's very much a special and it's unlikely that impressive viewing figures will result in another chapter in the Banks family story. Now, fans will get a chance to catch up with the Banks family a quarter of a century later with the Netflix special "Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish)".

Netflix is also promising some special guests. The Part 3 special release will benefit a nonprofit called the World Central Kitchen. "Watch right here on the Netflix YouTube channel live at 3pm PT/6pm ET".

The almost 27-minute-long sort-of-sequel, which takes place 25 years after "Father of the Bride Part II" (yes, it has been that long) follows a current-day Banks family Zoom, complete with Nina (Diane Keaton), daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), son Matty (Kieran Culkin) and eclectic wedding planner Franck (Martin Short).

Steve Martin reprises the titular role of George Banks. George's inbox is crowded with nods to 2020, from coronavirus-centric notifications ("Which air filter is best for you?") to updates about current events ("Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get worse.").

In the classic family movie, George Banks, a businessman and owner of an sports shoe company Side Kicks, is knocked for six when he finds out his 22-year-old daughter Annie is engaged. In the 1995 sequel Father of the Bride Part II, Annie and her mother become pregnant at the same time.

The narrative reunites the families on a an impromptu Zoom wedding between Matty and Rachel with Franck as the officiant. After the success of the original movie, a sequel to the movie was created. "And yes.I checked, it doesn't cost anything to accept the calendar invite, okay?"

On Wednesday, Netflix released an official video teaser, amping up the excitement even further. George is immediately suspicious of her daughter's new fiancé, Bryan MacKenzie (Newbern)-a feeling that stems from the sadness associated with her growing up.
