MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 3
- By SASHA GARY
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 is about a wonderful family reunion in Greece! What a fun way to celebrate the Portokalos family history and dying wish of Toula’s father, Gusy (Constantine) who wants his family to reconnect with their roots and see his village where he grew up in Greece as his dying wish. Michael Constantine passed away in 2021 and what a great way to begin this story, in honor of his real- life memory and how it affects the fictional family on screen.
The film takes place right away in Greece where we are all now transported on vacation. The sound of the Greek music, the beautiful color of Greece takes your breath away. It’s so important to go back to your roots and reconnect with where your family comes from.
The whole original cast travels to Athens Greece for filming including Nia Vardalos, who directs, and has also written all three films. Toula (Vardolas) and Ian (Corbett) have raised their daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) is all grown up now and will she continue the tradition of marrying into a Greek heritage? She will fall in love at this family reunion, will Aunt Voula be a matchmaker? Will there be a wedding? We will have to see!
