The 'Love Actually' Cast Has Fun With Cue Cards In The Trailer For Their Red Nose Day Sequel

"Because on Red Nose Day unexpected things happen."

Last month, we learned that the cast of the beloved British romantic comedy Love Actually would be reuniting for a sequel of sorts in the form of a new sketch for Red Nose Day, the telethon that raises money for the charity Comic Relief.

The new short was conceived by the film's director Richard Curtis, who co-founded Comic Relief in 1985. "I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to," he said of the project when it was announced.

This week, fans of the film got a sneak peek at the sketch, titled "Red Nose Day, Actually," in a new teaser trailer. It features cast members such as Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, and Andrew Lincoln holding up cue cards in a reference to Lincoln and Knightley's famous scene in the film. "Tune in to see what happened to everyone, and, amongst other things, which one of us has aged best," the cards joke.

The biggest sign of just how much time has passed, however, is how much young actors Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Olivia Olson have grown up since their airport kiss.

Red Nose Day airs on NBC Thursday, May 25 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
