“The week the order to stay home in California came, I woke up one of the first mornings, I think like most people did, feeling that, okay, I need to be able to do something of value,” said the filmmaker Jason Reitman in the middle. “I just thought, can we remake a full movie at home? And, he had seen that there was a ‘Star Wars’ made by fans. I started contacting actors I knew and said, ‘Is this something you would like to do?’ And, the response was somewhat immediate and quick. It was like, ‘Oh, that sounds like fun.’ “

The media outlet stated that the remake “uses absurd household accessories and wardrobe background costumes, and deploys multiple castings of the same roles to show that in a true fantasy, anyone can play anything.”
Several clips from the show were shared on Instagram on Saturday, showing off some of the techniques the remake was intended to use, such as replacing crowds of people with laymen and regular clothing like bathrobes rather than expensive studio outfits.
Garner, 48, and Tiffany Haddish appear as Buttercup, while Neil Patrick Harris and Common play Westley.
The romantic scenes were shot by real-life couples quarantined together, such as Harris, 47, and David Burtka.

The dogs of the stars even appeared when animals like horses or rodents were needed for the film, as seen in a clip shared by Vanity Fair.
All the actors and the behind-the-scenes team did the project for charity, which included a donation of 100,000 Quibi meals to World Central Kitchen.
