Netflix’s Bright 2 will soon roll out for the broad public, with its extreme world in which creatures such as orcs, elves, fairies, and people live together. Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, and David Ayer will be re-teaming for the new sequel.
Although the critics assumed it a negative rating, people loved it, and it showed in its over 11 million streamings on Netflix alone. This is the sole reason a second Bright build in underworks. Here is everything we know about Bright 2.
Netflix’s Bright 2 Trailer and Release Date
The second sequel of Bright was revealed back in January 2018, but because Will Smith was busy with other movies, such as Suicide Squad and Bad Boys 3, the filming was delayed. David Ayer, the director of the movie, stated that once Will Smith is free, Bright 2 filming will begin to roll out.
There are almost no chances for Bright 2 to come by Christmas of 2020, as the trailer is only appearing at Comic-Con of this year. However, Netflix has a rather quick way of getting things done, and they are not releasing a theatrical version, which makes things a bit easier.
Cast: Will Smith and Joel Edgerton to Return
Both Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are said to return to Bright 2 after they finish with their current projects. They have starred in numerous movies throughout the last year, such as Aladdin, Gemini Man, Spies in Disguise (Will Smith), Red Sparrow, Gringo, Boy Erased, and The King (Edgerton).
Plot Spoilers and Story Details
Bright 2 will allegedly be a better and bigger movie compared to the first sequel, as it will be filmed in other countries, according to Joel Edgerton, who played the role of the orc recruit named Nick Jakoby, in Bright.
Also, David Ayer has also mentioned some dragons and other mythological creatures from the Middle East, which are set in a modern world. Daryl Ward, played by Will Smith, has been revealed to be ‘Bright’ in the first sequel, and the second one will supposedly continue the narrative from there.
