The blockbuster action thriller, Bright, released on Netflix in December 2017, left its audience contemplating the movie’s sequel. A movie set in an imaginative alternate reality shows a world where humans and mythical creatures such as orcs, fairies, and elves co-existed in the same space and worked with each other. Magic was a common phenomenon in their land. The movie was an exquisite blend of war-action thrill intertwined with magical elements, making it ideal for a large audience.
It accounted for over 11 million views merely in the first three days of its release. In January 2018, it was announced that a sequel to the movie would be released too, which got the movie’s fans brimming with excitement.
What Do we know about the Release of the Sequel so Far?
Keeping in mind the astounding earnings of the movie and the note on which it left the viewers, Bright 2 is likely to be released. However, no official notice has been issued regarding the date of release for the same. About three years have passed since the release of Bright, and no official notice has been issued yet. This suggests that the producers don’t have any intentions of rushing the sequel. Sources have confirmed that filming hasn’t begun yet.
Joel Edgarton announced that the sequel would have to bring an international experience to the viewers as the film might get rolling beyond the borders of Los Angeles, where it was earlier shot.
Bright had a highly imaginative storyline that begins with Smith, playing Daryl Ward, being put together with an orc, the first of its kind to be recruited. He is entrusted with the task of preparing him for their future endeavors. Daryl doesn’t like this job and stays insolent towards it. Soon enough, an extremist cult called the Shield of Light creates disturbances in the safe house, coercing the two to work together and solve the issue. Unfortunately, they find out that the group is aimed at bringing back the Dark Lord into being.
The two are also obliged to rescue an elf named Tikka while fighting off the dark magic practitioners from bringing the powerful wand into their possession. Putting aside their differences and rising as partners, the two manage to stop the Dark Lord and hide the wand into anonymity. They earn recognition and awards for their bravery while Tikka elopes from the scene.
The movie attracted more people falling in the lower age groups who find the world of mysticism and magic fascinating. It did muster support from several young adults, too, keeping in mind the rates at which it was streamed in the very first week of its release. The fans are expecting a sequel of the movie to explore further into what happened after the Dark Lord was captured.
Originally, filming was to begin in 2019 itself. Though the busy schedule of Smith didn’t allow it, and the world started experiencing a global pandemic soon after. The sequel is likely to be released, though the time frame of the release stands unknown.
