Good news for all you '90s kid: the long awaited sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire, the 1993 San Francisco set Robin Williams cross-dressing/divorce comedy, has finally been confirmed!
It's been over 20 years since we checked in with the Hillard family of Steiner Street and a lot has changed in the world and San Francisco since then. Here are three possible plots we'd like director Chris Columbus to consider:
Doubtfire: The Family Legacy
Daniel Hillard's children are now grown with families of their own, but, while Lydie and Nattie are happily married, middle child Chris has hit a rough patch with his partner, Kevin, and the two have agreed to a trial separation. Chris isn't taking the news well, especially because it means he's severely limited from seeing the beloved pure-bred Cavalier King Charles Spaniels he and Kevin have been breeding. When Chris finds out his ex is looking to hire a dog walker, he goes to dad and makeup artist uncles Jack and Frank to help disguise him as Euphegenia Doubtfire's canine loving daughter, Conchatta. Kevin hires Conchatta right away upon seeing how positively the spaniels respond to him, err, her, and falls in very confused love with the middle-aged Scottish woman. Hilarity ensues as Chris learns to be a better man as Conchatta and eventually justifies his deception to Kevin as a James Franco-style performance art stunt.
