There is no doubt that Friends is one of those iconic series that lasts through the generations, and the great group of fans that the series managed to cherish is very difficult to be diluted, and for all these years they have been asking for some kind of episode additional or even a movie.
And if a movie hasn’t come out yet Friends It has not been because the actors and actresses have not wanted to, but there are some people who are not interested in it.
However, there were a number of plans for a hypothetical Friends movie, said by the actors and actresses themselves, and with new plot arcs, in characters who would have already married and started a family.
For example, according to Lisa Kudrow, Phoebe would have started a family with Mike: “Phoebe is married to Mike (Paul Rudd), they are probably in Connecticut, they have children, and I think she was the advocate for her children who were a little different and of all the other children.

As for Rachel, she would also live family life with Ross. Talking about Monica, she would be just as intense and competitive as in the serie, while their children would be outstanding. Joey would be enjoying life as the owner of his own sandwich shop.
But this movie never came about, and there were two big forces preventing it: the producers.
The Friends Actors and Actresses Wanted a Movie, but the Producers Didn’t
However, Jennifer Aniston herself, speaking with Variety, admitted interest in a movie since they wanted to please their huge fan base.
However, it was the producers who rejected these plans: “our producers wouldn’t want it, they wouldn’t let us. Look, it has not been without our desire, because our fans have loved it very much”.
Lisa Kudrow herself was also asked about the potential film, stating that the creators “didn’t want to re-upload the stories as they felt the ending of Friends was perfect.”
“It all depends on (creators) Marta (Kauffman) and David (Crane), and I once heard them say, and I completely agree, that they ended the show very well, everyone’s lives are very nice and they would have to fall apart. All those things so that there are stories. I don’t want anyone’s happy ending to be undone,” says Lisa.
On the other hand, Courteney Cox, in reference to The Friends: Reunion that was seen by millions of fans, despite its success, also clarifies that they do not intend to meet again to record another documentary, series or movie together, but that in private the entire cast continues to meet on a regular basis.
