Adapting to the real-life circumstances, in the third installment we see the Portokalos family traveling to Greece after the death of their patriarch, Gus; Michael Constantine who played in Gus in the franchise passed away in 2021. The family travel to Greece to deliver his journal to his friends still living in village he grew up in. Things take a surprising turn for Toula when she finds out that her father has a son, who now has his own family.
Along with the new addition of members to the Portokalos family, the story also features a wedding that’s not far from Toula and Ian’s own tale from the first movie. Fans can expect to see a union of strikingly different cultures as the Portokalos family deals with each other’s antics while navigating another family wedding.

Viewers can expect another tale of love and loss wrapped up in hilarious moments, great performances, and relatable circumstances. No wonder the feature is impressing nostalgia-struck fans around the world with the new and old cast adding charm to the story with their quirky comedic timing.
