It is already known that Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln and some other the old casts will appear in the new film. What new stories will the characters have? Will the children of the Prime Minister and his wife Natalie still study in that school? Will Daniel get married again? How will Sam meet his dream girl again? What will happen between Jamie Bennett and his Portuguese woman? Is the singer Billy Mack still live and work with his old partner? And is Rowan Atkinson still keen on wrapping gifts?

However, Emma Thompson will not appear in the new film, because Alan Rickman, her husband Harry in the story died last year.
