Not only does Academy Award® nominee Nia Vardalos star in this movie alongside the entire returning cast (including John Corbett, Lainie Kazan and Michael Constantine), Vardalos also wrote it. Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee, Waking Ned Devine) directs the next chapter of the film that will be once again produced by Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman. Paul Brooks and Steve Shareshian return to executive produce alongside Vardalos and Scott Niemeyer.

A Portokalos family secret is revealed that will bring the beloved characters back together for an even bigger and Greeker wedding! MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 2 hits theaters on Friday March 25, 2016.

Ha! The end of that trailer cracks me up every time. Just like Greeks have certain characteristics/traits that immediately give away their Greek background, (And I’m sure this is why we feel love this movie so much!) Latinos have some of our own traits. We’ve listed 8 reasons you know you’re Latino.

1. You greet everyone with a kiss on the cheek or at least un abrazo
2. At weddings, there’s tons of family and some you may have never met before
3. At birthday parties, someone’s face always ends up in the cake
4. There’s always food and your tia keeps telling you to eat more
5. Pero, if you lose weight or if you are on a diet, your family asks you if you are in love?!
6. An older family member reminds you endlessly how easy you have it
7. You have a Virgincita candle somewhere in your house
8. There’s an endless supply of chile in your house


And great news Queridos, two lucky readers will enjoy a prize-pack filled with a t-shirt and make-up bag!
