The first images of the reunion of 'Friends' drive fans crazy
There is only one week left for the premiere in the United States of the Friends special, with the reunion of the actors who starred in the series that marked an era on television. 26 years later (the first episode aired in 1994), the anticipation to see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer together again is enormous. While waiting for the reunion broadcast on HBO Max, fans of the series have been able to enjoy an exclusive report on People with the six actors and a trailer with the first images.
The magazine has collected the impressions of Aniston and her companions on the filming, the memories of her and the reunion, full of emotion. All of them have also answered the question of what Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross would be doing after so long.
The return of Friends has generated a huge business. The exact figure that the protagonists have received is unknown but the specialized portal The Hollywood Reporter revealed that they will take between 2.5 and 3 million dollars just for appearing in the HBO Max special, figures to which are added the juicy profits that obtained for years for the reissue of the series.
Although its stories are set in New York City, the new special has been filmed again in the Warner Bros. studios in Los Angeles, the same studios where its six main characters worked for 10 years, the hundreds of actors who participated in the series and the guest stars who were seduced by Friends, from Brad Pitt or George Clooney to Julia Roberts, Winona Ryder or Brooke Shields, among others.
The special, which will take a few months to be seen in Spain, also has guest stars such as Lady Gaga, Reese Witherspoon, Justin Bieber and Cara Delevingne.
