I think we have to resign ourselves to the fact that the Community movie is never, ever happening. Donald Glover is doing much, much bigger things right now, Joel McHale has become the very thing he made fun of as the host of the Joel McHale Show (wow, coincidence on the name or what?) and nobody would invite Chevy Chase back unless it was explicitly to resurrect his character from the dead to make a fart joke.
But three of your study group faves – Alison Brie, Danny Pudi and Gillian Jacobs – plus Ken Jeong, who remains firmly and rightly excluded from the study group, reunited last night, and mates, our hearts.
Look at them! Three of them, anyway. Just hanging out! Being fun!
Alison Brie even uploaded her photo to Instagram with the hashtag “#sixseasonsandamovie”, and are you TRYING TO PLAY WITH OUR HEARTS, ANNIE?
They got together to support Jacob’s new film Ibiza, which is your basic trash movie that looks insanely enjoyable. (It’s coming to Netflix. Schedule it in for your next hangover.)
“Friends seeing films!” Alison wrote on her Instagram stories.
Jacobs uploaded an almost identical group shot to her Instagram story, writing: “Can’t tell you how happy it makes me to be in the same room as these goofballs.” COOL JUST CRYING OVER HERE.
Guess Donald Glover was busy at the Met Gala or something? By all accounts, he spent 20 minutes of the official after party buried in deep conversation with Blake Lively, something I have not been able to stop thinking about.
Anyway. Even without Donald… or Joel… or Yvette Nicole Brown… or the Dean… it was still the greatest reunion since the Parks and Recreation crew got together for Aubrey Plaza‘s film Ingrid Goes West.
But a Community movie? Probably never gonna happen. Nothing will ever be as perfect as the first three seasons of that show. And the sixth season. Things really picked up again, huh.
