‘Father of the Bride’ special will reunite Steve Martin, Diane Keaton and more

This ceremony won’t cost you $250 a head.

The cast of “Father of the Bride” is reuniting in a new video premiering Friday.

Netflix teased the event on its social-media channels on Tuesday. “Twenty-five years later, the Banks Family returns for a very special event to benefit World Central Kitchen,” the promo reads.

Fans can don their best navy tuxedo, make themselves a plate of the “chipper chicken” and tune in on September 25 at 6 p.m. EST on Netflix’s YouTube and Facebook pages. Leave the superfluous hotdog buns at the store.

The 1991 Nancy Meyers flick — a remake of a 1950 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor — told the story of George Banks, a frugal shoe manufacturer tasked with putting on a wedding for his only daughter, Annie.

Steve Martin, who played George, and Meyers teased the reunion on their social-media accounts a few weeks ago.

The movie also starred Diane Keaton as George’s wife, Nina. Kimberly Williams-Paisley portrayed Annie. Kieran Culkin, now known for his role as Roman Roy on “Succession,” played Annie’s younger brother Matty. George Newbern played Annie’s fiancé, Bryan MacKenzie.

Martin’s longtime comedy partner Martin Short famously portrayed Franck Eggelhoffer, the hard-to-understand wedding planner. His partner, Howard Weinstein, was played by BD Wong.

In the 1995 sequel, “Father of the Bride Part II,” Annie and Nina get pregnant at the same time.

In July, the cast of another Meyers’ film, “The Parent Trap,” also reunited to benefit World Central Kitchen.
