Christmas has come early! The highly-anticipated sequel to beloved holiday movie Love Actually is finally out and it reunites cast members like Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley and Liam Neeson, who show us what has happened since we last saw them 14 years ago.

This time, the cast gathered for a good cause: Red Nose Day, a fundraising campaign held to end child poverty. Aptly so, the short film is called Red Nose Day Actually. While it was first exclusively previewed in the UK back in March, the video recently premiered in America and has now generously been shared on YouTube.

Sit back, grab some popcorn and prepare to feel all the feels as we highlight our favourite moments from the video.

Mark appears at Juliet's door again (with signboards, of course)
One of the most famous moments from the original film was recreated but this time, when Mark (Andrew Lincoln) shows up at Juliet's (Keira Knightley) doorstep, he tells her to say that it's people trying to raise money for Red Nose Day instead of Christmas carollers. He still plays Silent Night in the background (we're getting flashbacks to the original scene and already tearing up) and we find out that Juliet and Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are still very much happily married. And oh, Mark's married to Kate Moss – no biggie.

Prime Minister David can still bust a move
Who can forget this scene? Young British Prime Minister David, played by Hugh Grant, once shook his booty to Jump (For My Love). This time, he chose Drake's Hotline Bling and we can't help but giggle at his slower dance pace. Of course the scene ends with him getting caught by his now-wife and former tea lady, Natalie (Martine McCutcheon).

Jamie and Aurelia are still loved up
Jamie (Colin Firth) and Aurelia (Lúcia Moniz) are still together. The pair drive around and reminisce about when they first met. We also learn that they have three kids together with one more on the way! Aww...

Sarah finally finds love
Remember how Sarah (Laura Linney) could never find love because she had to care for her mentally-ill brother? If you've always felt bad that she ended up alone, fret not. She's now married to a character played by the charming Patrick Dempsey. Don't you just love happy endings?

Sam's all grown up and in love (again) 
Little drummer Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) is now grown up and as he talks to his father Daniel (Liam Neeson) about his love life, we can't help but feel super old (these kids grow up so fast). It turns out that Sam reunited with Joanna (yes, the same Joanna he ran through the airport to say goodbye to in the original film) and they're engaged.

TOO MANY FEELS. We don't know about you but our day's officially been made.
