Cheers to Edina and Patsy!

The first image from Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is here and it looks ... well, absolutely fabulous.

On Monday, BBC Films and Fox Searchlight Pictures released the photo, which depicts Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) soaking up the sun as they enjoy champagne on a boat.

The film version of the classic BBC comedy follows Edina and Patsy as they weather scandal after being blamed for a "major incident" at a launch party. They flee to the French Riviera to escape the prying eyes of the paparazzi. The movie is currently filming in the U.K. and the South of France, and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2016.
