Besides the original cast, many other celebrities will make a special appearance in the show. Moreover, guest stars from the original run will be a part of the reunion too.
The lead cast of Friends has been “very emotional” while filming the upcoming reunion episode. Previously, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow mentioned how it was like to return on the original set.
Friends: The Reunion trailer
We were already weeping after watching the teaser that came out a week ago. And now a whole-length trailer? Friends fans have been overwhelmed with all the memories coming back.
The trailer opens with all of the Friends sitting on the sofa at Monica( Courteney Cox) and Rachel’s (Jennifer Aniston) apartment. They all are reenacting a famous scene from season 4 where Monica and Rachel lose their apartment to Joey (Matt Le Blanc) and Chandler (Matthew Perry).
The frame suddenly changes as Lisa Kudrow enters the original set, and gasps seeing the studio after so long. The cast is then seen hanging around with each other as they feel nostalgic coming back to their “reel” homes. At one point, Aniston even asks for a box of tissue. It is definitely “the one we’ve been waiting for.”
It looks the special episode is divided into two parts- one on the set, while one on the iconic Friends sofa at Warner bros. We see James Corden welcoming them to the Warner Bros studio as he begins to interview them. We also see the cast talking about their time from when the show debuted and how they became best friends and a family. All the six members will also be having a table read from one of their old episodes.
Talking about old, the original guest stars of the show are also in the trailer. We see Tom Selleck, who played Dr. Richard, Monica’s ex-boyfriend. Moreover, fans’ favorite, Maggie Wheeler, who portrayed Janice is also present in the video.
We are ready to see them once again but not as Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, Ross, and Chandler. But, this time they will make us laugh as Courteney, Jennifer, Lisa, Matt, David, and Matthew.
