Fans of holiday cheer and iconic rom-coms everywhere couldn't help but freak out after it was announced that Love Actually was getting a mini-sequel — and based on these first behind-the-scenes snapshots from producer Emma Freud, it's going to be epic.
In a series of photos shared to Twitter this weekend, Freud confirmed that Hugh Grant will be reviving his role as the Prime Minister for the project — while also revealing that he and Natalie (a.k.a., Martine McCutcheon) are still happily married.
In other tweets, Freud also gave fans a little look at Bill Nighy's return as Billy Mack. (Those shoes!)
, the beloved cast of Love Actually is reuniting for a 20-minute sequel of the original film in honor of U.K.-based charity Comic Relief's biennial fundraiser for Red Nose Day, which aims to support "projects that ensure kids are safe, healthy and educated." Titled Red Nose Day Actually, the sequel will allow fans to catch up with the film's cast of characters approximately 14 years after we last saw them. So far, Freud's tweets seem to suggest there are plenty of surprises in store.
"I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to," writer-director (and Comic Relief co-founder) Richard Curtis previously told ." Who has aged best? I guess that's the big question — or is it so obviously Liam [Neeson]? We've been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part — and it'll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later. We hope to make something that'll be fun and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows."
Red Nose Day Actually will premiere on March 24 in the U.K., and May 25 in the U.S.
