The reinvention, which will be divided into segments of 10 minutes or less of Quibi, was filmed at home by its quarantined stars and will start broadcasting on Monday, Vanity Fair reported.
The program is expected to raise funds for the World Central Kitchen, which provided food relief amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“The week the order to stay at home came in California, I just woke up one of the first mornings, I think most people did, feeling like, okay, I have to to be able to do something of value, “said director Jason Reitman. “I was just thinking, Can we redo an entire movie at home?” And, I saw that a “Star Wars” made by fans had been made. I just started reaching out to the actors I knew, saying, “Is this something you would like to do? And, the response was fairly immediate and rapid. It was like, ‘Oh – it sounds fun.’ “
The point of sale said that the remake “uses absurd household accessories and costumes in the back of the closet, and deploys several castings of the same roles to show that in a real fantasy, anyone can play anything “.
Several clips from the show were shared on Instagram Saturday, showcasing some of the techniques the remake intended to use, such as replacing crowds of people with legos and regular clothes such as bathrobes instead of expensive studio costumes.
The romantic scenes were filmed by quarantined real-life couples like Harris, 47, and David Burtka.
The stars’ dogs even appeared when animals like horses or rodents were needed for the film, as shown in a clip shared by Vanity Fair.
All the actors and the backstage team carried out the charity project, which included a donation of 100,000 Quibi meals to World Central Kitchen.
