2:16 PM PDT 4/30/2013 by Michael O'Connell
Ahead of the cult comedy's May 26 revival on Netflix, the entire cast -- Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Portia de Rossi among them -- reunites in Hollywood (with an ostrich) to screen the first new episode in seven years.
The Netflix revival of Arrested Development marks the first time the entire cast has collaborated in seven years.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
The woman who once said "Well, I don't care about ostriches" was dangerously close to one of the birds when she arrived with her talk show host wife.
Will Arnett flew out from New York where he's filming the upcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
While its not the one that makes a cameo in the series, an ostrich was in attendance at the Chinese Theatre screening.
Arrested star Alia Shawkat was only 16 when the show ended its Fox run in 2006.
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
Actress Amber Tamblyn joined Arrested star David Cross, though his denim cut-offs were nowhere in sight.
Kasia Ostlun and Jeffrey Tambor
Jeffrey Tambor, still playing both Oscar and George Bluth, arrived with Kasia Ostlun.
Brian Grazer and Mitch Hurwitz
Executive producer Brian Grazer, who appears in the new season, embraces Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurtwitz before the screening.
Jessica Walter, far more accommodating than her alter ego, was at no point heard responding to reporters with one of Lucille's signature lines: "I don't understand the question, and i won't respond to it."
Jason Bateman and Amanda Anka
Jason Bateman, the only Bluth appearing in all 15 episodes, brought wife Amanda Anka to the premiere.
Just a few weeks before plugging Arrested Development, Tony Hale was down the block for the season premiere party of his other comedy, Veep.
Arrested Development foil Judy Greer returns for the latest batch of episodes, reprising the role of Kitty Sanchez.
Returning to his breakout role, Michael Cera pulled double duty -- acting and writing for the Netflix revival.
"Homeland's" Nicholas Brody became the latest casualty in a long line of shows -- from "M*A*S*H" to "ER" to "Walking Dead" -- that have offed main characters in the middle of a series run. View gallery
