With a little over two weeks to go before its UK release, a featurette has arrived online for Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie which focuses on the films sixty cameos and features interviews with Emma Bunton, Kate Moss, Gwendoline Christie, Chris Colfer and Celia Imrie. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
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 forevermore!
