If you’ve been looking forward to the release of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2”, we’ve got great news: the first photos of the cast on set have officially been released!
The whole Portokalos family, pictured above, has returned for the second movie that now follows Ian (John Corbett) and Toula (Nia Vardalos) trying to find time for each other and their relationship while dealing with their lives, their big Greek family, and their teenage daughter.
Almost the entire cast from the previous film has reunited in the sequel, including Michael Constantine, Joey Fatone, Lainie Kazan, Louis Mandylor, and Andrea Martin (pictured below with Nia); newcomer Elena Kampouris plays Nia’s daughter, and John Stamos shows up for a small cameo role.
When asked about her experience working on the sequel, Nia Vardalos described some strange deja vu moments with the cast when coming back together after such a long time.
At one point, she said “We’re standing [on set] and John (Corbett), goes, ‘Weren’t we just here six months ago? It was lovely having the whole cast back together. We hugged each other daily and ate a lot. When the candy cart came around, we are scraping off candy. It wasn’t like a normal set where people had to fit into Gucci jeans.”
We can’t wait for the release of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2”, now scheduled for March 25, 2016. In the meanwhile, enjoy the Portokalos family photos!
