It’s official folks. Despite receiving not so hot reviews from several critics, Netflix just released a teaser, confirming that Bright 2 is very much happening. This is historic for Netflix because with Bright 2 the streaming juggernaut has officially got its first ever movie franchise. Netflix aired Bright, a crime thriller based in a fairy tale world just before Christmas on December 22, 2017, and fans absolutely loved it. So much so that Bright became Netflix’s most-watched movie ever in just the first week of its release. Bright had a $90 million budget and became Netflix’s number 1 movie in 190 countries. The movie received more viewership internationally compared to the US and due to its massive success, it was only a matter of time Netflix was officially going to announce the sequel and that happened today. Netflix is expected to make Bright 2 with the same winning combination of Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, and director David Ayer, who is going to write this sequel as well. Bryan Unkeless and Eric Newman are going to produce Bright 2 and if this one becomes a hit with the fans as well, chances are we may get to see a Bright trilogy.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, Netflix’s Number 1 movie Bright is set in an alternate reality and follows a team of two extremely different Los Angeles cops. Will Smith plays the character of a human cop named Ward, while Joel Edgerton plays an Orc cop, Jakoby. The duo tries to keep order in a very wild and futuristic LA all the while dealing with their personal differences. However, when a mysterious Elf and a powerful magical weapon that has the ability to grant its wielder any wish, they are forced to work together to protect it and in turn save the world.
Bright 2 teaser doesn’t show any footage from the sequel itself but rather features two exciting Orc actors who are auditioning for a potential role in the upcoming movie.
