‘Fuller House’ trailer unveiled on ‘The Ellen Show’: are you excited?

2015 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party - Arrivals

Just in case Hollywood hasn’t ruined all of your fond childhood memories yet, they’re going to give it another go. In advance of its February 26 debut on Netflix, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler), Candace Cameron-Bure (DJ Tanner), and Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) showed up on Tuesday’s episode of Ellen to premiere the trailer for the upcoming reboot of family favorite Full House, ingeniously titled Fuller House.

The trio took a snap backstage, which Candace posted on her Instagram page. In the caption, Candace revealed that “Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen recorded the theme for the rebooted series.

The trailer, which starts at around the 2:30 mark in the video, reunites us with the actresses along with Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Lori Loughlin. Of course, all of your favorite catchphrases from the original show pop up, like “Hola Tannerinos,” “Have mercy,” “Cut. It. Out” and, of course, “How rude.”

Speaking of rude, the Olsen twins, who together played young Michelle during the show’s original run weren’t being rude about not taking part in the new series, citing scheduling conflicts with their fashion lines as the reason they would not be back. According to People magazine, Ashley told the show’s executive producer, Bob Boyett “I have not been in front of a camera since I was 17 and I don’t feel comfortable acting.” When Ellen asked if Mary-Kate and Ashley would be making a cameo on the new show, Candace said, “I don’t know, the door’s open if they want to!” She later added, “We make reference to them on the show, though, so they are not forgotten. We talk about them.”

I was never a Full House fan, (I don’t think I’ve ever made it through an episode, but I must agree what John Stamos’ Uncle Jesse says at a family dinner shown in the trailer, “Damn, we all still look good!” John definitely looks great (have you seen him on Grandfathered?) Are you adding this show to your Netflix queue?

    Suprisingly, I really am. Bring back all the nostalgia.

  2. Erinn says:

    I just really don’t want to put money into the pockets of the Cameron’s.

  3. Eggland's worst says:

    I think some people need to back off the Olsens. They were exploited since babies. Everyone who could, squeezed as much out of them as they could. They are doing their own thing now and good for them. This show needs them more than they need it. I will watch an episode or two out of curiosity for the nostalgia factor (I do watch Girl Meets World), but it would have to be really appealing to stick with.

    • Dancinnancy says:

      Agree completely Eggland’s a Worst! Leave the Olson’s alone. They have both said they have no desire to return. Mary-Kate has said it would have to be her as Ashley has stage-fright/anxiety about acting now. And MK just doesn’t have time/interest.

      I’m paying attention though. Jodi Sweeten had transition issues and was heavily into drugs. How will spotlight/money effect her?

      But. I DO enjoy Girl Meets World with my daughter.

  4. Angie says:

    Yeah I couldn’t even finish the trailer, this looks embarrassingly bad right? Just really dated and cheesy. Of am I just a snob? LOL I dunno.

  5. Kristen says:

    The jokes seem really cheesy (that stuck in the 90s bit and all the old catchphrases being shoehorned in are cringe-worthy) but the big surprise for me is Jodie Sweetin totally seems to be the best actress of the 3 leads! Candace and Andrea have a super cheesy delivery. Jodie comes across as really natural and the only legitimately funny one of them all.

  6. JenniferJustice says:

    Let’s not confuse Cameron with Kirk. She is old-fashioned and prefers the 50’s style marriage, and she is religous. But she wasn’t the one being a total homophobe and talking crazy like Kirk. I don’t think her income goes toward her parents or extended family. I would imagine she is simply earning for her own family – granted, a percentage will be tythed to her church. For all we know, their church is embarrassed by Kirk too. 🙂

    My only concern is re Sweeten. I hope she can handle the limelight. I hope folks are sensitive and kind because I see her as emotionally fragile. I worry about rude comments and put-downs she may not be able to let roll off. I’m snarky as heck on this site, but not when it’s about someone already known for having low self-esteem…..except for LeAnne Rhymes. I show her no mercy.

    • Tiffany says:

      Candace is the same way, she just chose to be more subtle about it.

    • Erinn says:

      She’s no saint either. Just because she’s not as bad as Kirk, doesn’t mean I should want to support her. I don’t care about what she does in her own marriage, or anything like that. I just hate that a barely mediocre child star has the platform that she does to show support in denying people rights and victim blaming someone who goes on their crap show to discuss their HIV status.

      I’ll be happily avoiding this trainwreck of a show, and I’ll be quite happy knowing that I’m not directly supporting her.

    • Here's Wilson says:

      This comment isn’t meant to be snarky or rude just an observation but girl looks good for someone who’s drug of choice was meth. I hope she has the coping skills and support system she’ll need to get back into tv.

  7. Luxe says:

    I was excited about it tbh but I don’t know if I can stomach Andrea Barber long enough to watch it after seeing her in that trailer. I’ll give it a chance but I’m not forcing myself to finish it if the cringe is too heavy.

  8. MC2 says:

    Nope- I am not excited at all. I used to watch the show too- TGIF but it should be dead & buried. I think the Olsen’s made the right choice. They don’t need this show & it would only bring their brand down.

  9. Dre dog says:

    Stephanie Tanner is hot

  10. JH says:

    Terrible. I couldn’t finish the trailer.

  11. Helen says:

    hm… no. I’m not sure if I’m alone in this, english isn’t my first language but I’ll give it a try… I felt sort of horrible whilst watching the trailer. It looks dated, and not in a ~ nostalgia dated, such as watching My so called life. It’s dated in a bad way, not what we should be looking for in a show today. It’s sort of a nostalgia for conservative, superficially perfect moral families with an embarrassing sense of humour, really not something I imagine people would watch in the age of HBO. Even shows from ABC Family are getting better. This looks like trying to back to shows like 7th heaven and Lifetime movies. And conservative tv really scares me, because I do think it speaks a lot about people’s views, it represents their state of mind in a way. But again, I might be alone in this, and it might be a hit, who knows.

    • MaggieOwns says:

      I agree with you, Helen. it did feel dated, and not in a good way (nice shout out to MSCL!). Also, your English is great!

  12. Abby says:

    It made me smile. I have a lot of good memories of watching Full House growing up. Might tune in! I totally forgot about Girl Meets World. Need to check that out too!
