Get ready to relive Hugh Grant dropping F-bombs in the rain and Rowan Atkinson bumbling through marriage ceremonies as the cast of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” are reuniting for the first time in 25 years.

Creator Richard Curtis is getting the stars of the 1994 British romantic comedy back together for a special Red Nose Day short film dubbed “One Red Nose Day and a Wedding,” it was announced Wednesday.

Once again directed by Mike Newell, the short features Grant, Andie MacDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas, John Hannah, Atkinson, James Fleet, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, David Bower, Robin McCaffrey, Anna Chancellor, Rupert Vansittart, Simon Kunz, Sara Crowe and Timothy Walker. They will also be joined by special guest stars.

“We’re all definitely older — I suspect no wiser. It’s been really enjoyable working out what’s happened to all the characters — and now they get back together for the fifth wedding. Where, as usual, not everything will go as planned,” screenwriter Curtis said, who is also the co-founder of Red Nose Day.

“One Red Nose Day and a Wedding” will premiere exclusively during Red Nose Day 2019 on BBC One on March 15, 2019. It will also feature as part of NBC’s programming for Red Nose Day USA in May.

The reunion follows a similar short centered around the cast of another Curtis hit, “Love Actually,” for the 2017 Red Nose Day.

Since its launch in 1985, Red Nose Day has raised over £887 million. Comic Relief spends the money raised to help the people who really need it most, both here in the U.K. and around the world. Red Nose Day launched in the U.S. in 2015 with a mission to end child poverty and has raised almost $150 million to date. Money raised supports programs that ensure children in need are safe, healthy and educated, both in America and abroad. For more information about Red Nose Day USA and its impact, visit www.rednoseday.org.
