Gilmore Girls: Lauren Graham Says There’s New Interest in a Reunion Movie

Lauren GrahamLauren Graham, who’s found new success (and a new beau, Peter Krause) on NBC’s Parenthood, has often sounded a bit pessimistic about the possibility of a Gilmore Girls movie. Now, it seems there’s a bit of hope.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Graham was asked about the project’s chances and noted that there’s actually new interest.

Asked if a Gilmore Girls movie will happen, she said, “It might. What’s funny to me is that in all these years, no one ever talked about it except the fans. But now people with power, people who could actually make it happen, are talking about it. I think it could be good, but I wonder if we’ve waited too long. I don’t want to be walking around the town square with a cane.”

When asked if the Sex and the City movies might be a reason to stay away from the project, Graham said that she liked the first one. When asked to speculate about what the storyline might be, she mused, “It’s hard to say because the show was never very plot driven. That is what might be uncovered in a two-hour movie. You’d be like, ‘Wait a minute, they just talk and make fun of things. This is a terrible movie.'”

If you don’t want to wait to see Graham back on screen, you can tune in to the season premiere of Parenthood tonight on NBC.

What do you think? Would you like to see Graham in a Gilmore Girls reunion? Do you think a movie would be worth seeing?

    I would LOVE to see a Gilmore Girls movie too. I watched it when was on, then the reruns, and then again with my boyfriend. He loves it too and we watch one or two episodes every night after dinner. I agree with the previous post that Rory should get together with Jesse. He was a much more interesting character than Logan. A tortured artist that was more in tune with Rory’s personality. It was Jesse’s return, after all, that set Rory back on the right track. I love the idea of him running a daycare.

    Loved Gilmore Girls! Would love to see a reunion movie! Would go to the theater to see and and buy it on video when it came out! Watch the seasons all the time, have them all! Great show! There is so much crap on TV these days and this was a great funny real show! There are so many great characters that they could run with if they brought it back to a serious from the movie that is a great idea!

    Ok I loved the series and must admit I watch the reruns, because it just makes me feel good. I think if they do a reunion movie, it should be some years later, Rory is married to Jessee and he is a stay at home dad running a daycare and writing his novel, Rory is on assignment and Luke and Loreli are pregnant with twins (like her dream). Just adds a twist and possible new series out of the deal in the future. I think Jesse running a day care would be hilarious, and Luke as a parent would even be funnier. Just my two cents

    YESSSS please oh please do a movie!!! I dont like how it ended and I need to know if Luke and Loralei get married and have the twins she dreamed about?? and why and how did Rory say NO to Logan…they need to get married…..UGH there was no closure at all…pleast listen to the fans and do it!!!!

    My husband (yes, he loves it, too!!) and I watch it every day at five…I’ve seen every episode at least 5 or 6 times. As far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the best written and acted shows ever on TV!! We’d love to have some sort on conclusion to Lorelei’s and Rory’s lives, and all the quirky characters of Stars Hallow!!

    OH MY GOSH. This would make me SO incredibly happy! Gilmore Girls is such a huge part of my life, and I would be absolutely ECSTATIC if they were to release a reunion movie! :)

    I would love love love to see a G.G. movie. Everytime I watch the show finale’ I cry when the enter the tent to the “bon voyage” party. I feel like the shows cast is an extended family. I started watching this show a couple season in during reruns and I was hooked. I was in a crappy marriage with a horrible guy and (even though its fictional) this show gave me the inspiration that if I were able to get out of it that me and my daughter (not his) would be perfectly ok and it was the relationship I wanted to have with her as she grew up. She used to sit around watching it with me ( starting at age 2) and she’d dance to the theme song and everything…it was really cute. If they ever do make a reunion movie there’s no doubt I would go see it. I’m so there :)

    Gilmore girls litterly became a big part of my life as I grew up! I really want them to bring it back even for just one more time! People don’t understand how important gilmore girls is. With all the tv shows out there now they barely even bring up important issues for girls and their mothers. Gilmore girls was much more then a tv show. It was a way of life. I was very upset when I heard they had cannceld it all those years ago. There were so many lose ends that needed to be tied up. I really hope a movie will happen. I miss Lorelei Rory Micheal Sookie Lane and most of all Luke! I really hope this comes true and the cast will be brought together once more.

  12. Kristina says

    YES!!! I’ve been waiting for years and years to hear about a gilmore girls movie! Feels like I need more closure!! This was my favorite tv show ever! I would love to see all the cast back together <33 Hoping and praying they make a movie! :)

  13. Sheena says

    YYYYYEEEEESSSSSS…..They need a movie or more shows or SOMETHING. I do not like how it ended. We NEEDDDDDD closure people. Rori and Logan need to run into each other and get back together. Luke and Lorelai , we needed more than just a kiss at the end. Everyone waited for so long for them to get back together, we needed more than that.

  14. A Dedicated Fan says

    I was really upset when I found out the Gilmore Girls was getting cancelled. Gilmore Girls was my most favorite TV series out there. I always laughed or cried with them. I was really upset when Rory turned down Logan’s proposal. I thought they were perfect together. I have always hoped they would come back for a new season, like a few other shows have done, or a reunion show. I need to have the closure of Luke and Lorelai getting married. I would also like to see that Rory and Logan ran into each other down the road and are back together with a wedding in their future. I don’t think I will ever get tired of watching the reruns on ABC Family. BRING GILMORE GIRLS BACK!!!!!!!
