Fox Searchlight Pictures and BBC Films have revealed the first Absolutely Fabulous movie teaser, which you can check out below!

The Absolutely Fabulous movie reunites Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as the iconic Edina and Patsy along with the rest of the original cast that includes Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother.

Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more! In true Ab Fab style, the cast will be joined by a host of A-list stars from the acting, music and fashion worlds.

Mandie Fletcher (“Blackadder,” “Absolutely Fabulous”) is directing from a script by Jennifer Saunders. The producers are Jon Plowman (“Absolutely Fabulous,” “The Vicar of Dibley”) and Damian Jones (The Iron Lady, Belle) with Steve Milne, Christian Eisenbeiss, Christine Langan, Nichola Martin, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, and Maureen Vincent serving as executive producers. 

Fox Searchlight Pictures will release the Absolutely Fabulous movie in the US and UK on July 1.
