UPDATED: The sequel is set to bring back the core cast, as well as director David Ayer. However, David Ayer will also be picking up writing duties from the controversial screenwriter, Max Landis.
Netflix also gave an update on the views for Bright, saying that the film was the most viewed original film for them ever, and one of the highest rated in their overall slate of original content.
Netflix has confirmed a recent rumor that’s been circulating regarding its latest film, Bright. Early reports indicated that audiences would be getting a sequel to the urban fantasy film — and this report came in advance of the film actually hitting the streaming service.
Now that the film has hit, and we know it’s been a success on at least some level, it makes sense that we’d get a confirmation.
Netflix has now released a fun little video of fake “orc audition,” and in those auditions, it’s revealed that yes, we will be getting a sequel to the film. Now, of course, the next question here is…What will the title be?
The video goes on to spitball some okay to awful titles that include Bright 2, Brighter, Bad Boys in Mordor, Orcs Gone Wild, The Last Inferni, and Wand Wars. Personally, I’m a fan of the last one, but that’s just me. The video then decides that an actual title can be figured out later.
What matters right now is that we will see the continuing adventures of Ward and Jakoby, and we will see a whole lot more of this intriguing world.
The first Bright film saw a world where orcs, elves, and humans live alongside one another, in a class-heavy society. Personally, I found the movie to be an enjoyable ride, but was way more interested in the characters and world than in the plot of the film. With that in mind, I’m happy we’ll get another film that will delve deeper into both of those aspects I enjoyed.
