As per the YouTube channel, Focus Features, the third franchise of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" will be out in September, as they announced, "Our favorite Big Fat Greek Family is back. Watch the trailer for #MyBigFatGreekWedding3, only in theaters on September 8!"

While the first movie actually focuses on Toula Portokalos' wedding to non-Greek Ian Miller (played by John Corbett), the second movie was more about Toula wanting the best for her daughter, Paris (Elena Kampouris) as well as her parents discovering they weren't married.

Now, things have changed, and Toula's father, Gus Portokalos (played by late actor Michael Constantine) has passed and the family is off for a Greek vacation to rediscover their roots, with the rest of the cast coming back to reprise their roles, as well as a few new faces.

The fans are loving the trailer, and letting their appreciation be known... Wrote one besotted fan, "Crying already. My family and I took our first trip to Greece last summer— we actually happened to be there while you were filming! We’ve been loving the MBFGW films from the start; they’re a family tradition now. Cannot wait to relive the memories with them when we all go to see this together in theatres. Thank you."

Rita Wilson shared the poster of the movie some time back, given that she's the producer, and while fans are all excited about the movie itself, the poster attracted some wild comments, like...

"What did they do to everyone’s faces in this poster."

"Utterly bizarre what was done to the faces on that poster..."

One Instagram user even cheekily asked, "Is the whole thing cgi like the poster?!" while more feared it, "The Facetuned pics kinda scare me tho."

The fans gushed only about the movie though, with another chiming, "I can’t wait for this. These movies are just the essence of joy, happiness, and escapism. I am so overjoyed they made a third one, came up with a good plot, and are keeping the fun going. If I had any complaint, it would be…so like is there a wedding in this one?"

If you look at the trailer and even the picture above, all the actors look natural, despite the fact it's a movie coming more than two decades after the first one. That said, the movie poster is nothing but horrible photoshop, as one fan begged them, "I’m so excited! One of the most important movie series in my life. We gotta redo this poster though besties. Every single bit of it looks bizarre."

Here's another comment: "I love these movies, but I have serious questions for the editor of this poster. Are you okay? Who hurt you? This is a safe space. Let’s talk about it."

Let's just concentrate on the trailer!
