We’re Devastated That This Friends Reunion Trailer Is Fake
The fan-made trailer is making the rounds on the Internet.
Fans of Friends have been wishing for a movie reunion ever since the last episode aired in May 2004. But unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like it will ever happen, since most of the cast have shot down reports of a future reunion, saying the show ended on a high note. Most recently, Lisa Kudrow told Savannah Guthrie on the Today Show, “I don’t see it happening. It would be fun, but what would it be about? Think about it. The thing we liked best about the show was that they were 20-somethings and they were their own family. Now, they all have families, so what are we going to watch?”
Even though it all seems pretty set in stone, mega-fans can still dream, right? If Will & Grace and Roseanne can make comebacks, you can never say never. A new fake movie trailer keeps the dream alive—and fans are freaking out. Smasher, a movie, TV, and gaming YouTube channel, created a teaser trailer concept for a Friends movie called “The One With The Reunion.”
The trailer seems so real—it’s edited with clips of the actors making guest appearances on each others’ shows like Courteney Cox’s Cougar Town, Lisa Kudrow’s Web Therapy, and Matt LeBlanc’s Episodes. Along with background music to tie it all together and the classic Friends-style font, if this was played before a movie feature, we’d all probably think it was really happening.
In the fake movie, you’ll find that there are some drastic life changes for the group since we last left them in the series finale for the show. The description for the fake movie reads, “This picks up a few years where the final season left off with Ben and Emma grown up. Mike and Phoebe have trouble with marriage, Monica and Chandler are getting a divorce, Joey couldn't find someone, and Ross and Rachel have trouble after many years of not being together!”
Take a look at the trailer below and let’s keep our fingers crossed for a reunion one day.
