Father of the Bride followed George Banks (Steve Martin), whose oldest daughter, Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) is about to get married. But he’s having trouble letting go and accepting that his little girl is all grown up. The film costars Diane Keaton as George’s wife, Kieran Culkin as his son, George Newbern as Annie’s fiancé, and Martin Short as her eccentric wedding planner — and pretty much the bane of George’s existence.

The sequel, Father of the Bride Part II, is about George becoming a grandfather… and a father. After his daughter announces her pregnancy, his wife shockingly reveals that she’s pregnant, too! So what in the world could the sequel to the sequel be about? George becoming a great-grandfather is the running theory. We can’t wait to find out what’s in store!
