Speaking of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3, Vardalos said in a statement (via Variety): "The sweet friendship which bloomed from the producers’ first taking a chance on me then grew into a beautiful relationship as they entrusted me to direct this instalment of our franchise. We filmed our family reunion entirely in Greece which was thrilling for us all. Plus, we ate for free."

Producer Rita Wilson added: "It’s thrilling to have Nia Vardalos, Academy Award-nominated writer, not only in front of the camera as our star, but also behind the camera as our director, guiding our beloved cast for this third film shot on location in Greece. My Big Fat Greek Wedding has brought audiences joy for twenty-one years. I’m so happy that more joy is on the way."
