The sequel picks up the story three years after Mike (Channing Tatum) decided to pack up his G-string and spend more time making chairs instead of dancing around them. But it's tough for him to completely eschew that life, and sure enough, when an opportunity for one last hurrah presents itself, he soon finds himself back in action.
It turns out that the remaining veterans of the Kings Of Tampa are looking to join Mike in the post-dancer category, but have decided to wrap up their careers with one final tour and show. Hitting the road for Myrtle Beach to attend a stripper convention with a few stops along the way, they realise that this could be their craziest experience yet.
Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash and Joe Manganiello are among the Magic Mike (2012) veterans joining Tatum, with Amber Heard (The Rum Diary), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), Jada Pinkett Smith (Collateral), Donald Glover (Community) and Andie MacDowell (Four Weddings And A Funeral) on board for this one.
With regular Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike) collaborator Jacobs calling the shots and the man himself still behind the camera as cinematographer and editor, Magic Mike XXL struts into cinemas on 3 July.
