When Will Crazy Rich Asians 2 Release Date Be? It’s incredible to imagine that Crazy Rich Asians opened in 2018 to such acclaim and grossed over $240 million throughout the world in its first year. Given the series’ enormous success, it was almost a given that Warner Bros. would seek to adapt Kevin Kwan’s second novel in the series, China Rich Girlfriend, into a film.
The third novel in the trilogy, Rich People Problems, is also being made into a film. And now, after many years of unclear progress, the sequel appears to be moving forward.
The initial plan was for the 2020 release of both the original and the sequel to be shot simultaneously. There may be a holdup, though, because of certain unseen issues.
As for the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians. What is the current situation? All the information you need to know about the follow-up film is included here.
Release Date of the Movie
As the announcement of season 2 has been done recently. The release date is going to take some time. The production of the movie and the confirmation of the cast of the series is also under process. Once it will be over, we can expect an early trailer in December or January 2023. If everything goes well, Crazy Rich Asian 2 would be released in mid-2023.
Crazy Rich Asians 2 plot:
The second installment of Kevin Kwan’s trilogy continues the drama surrounding Rachel Chu and Nick Young’s engagement. The sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend, follows up two years after the first film, and given how closely the original film mirrored its source material, the sequel will most likely stay true to the novel.
Crazy Rich Asians, whose mid-credits scene hints at a reunion between Gemma Chan’s Astrid and her previous fiancé Charlie (played by Glee’s Harry Shum Jr), set the stage for the sequel.
Rachel’s long-lost father reappears in the novel, introducing her to a world of Chinese millionaires whose fortune dwarfs that of her Singaporean would-be family. (The title is a play on Nick’s mother’s exclamation: “These aren’t ordinary millionaires with a few hundred million dollars.
Despite the fact that both Astrid and Charlie are married. The novel’s plot centers on the developing chasm between Astrid and her husband Michael, as well as the deepening affection between Astrid and Charlie.
Add a splash of romance, heartbreak, and revenge to the mix, and you’re good to go.
Crazy Rich Asians 2 cast:
While no cast members for the sequel have been confirmed. It would be surprising if Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Lisa Lu, Ken Jeong, Michelle Yeoh, and Harry Shum Jr didn’t return.
Golding is willing to do it but is unsure when it will happen. According to Pockets News, he said: “They’re still waiting for Kevin Kwan’s two books, and they’re trying to figure out how to turn them from page to script to the cinema. It’s a difficult process because, visually, a novel may not make as much sense on the screen as it would in a straight adaptation. So you’ll have to shake things up a bit to keep it exciting.
“The other issue is that we’re up against the first one. So everyone has great expectations. It won’t be as simple as the first time. Certainly, it’s still a work in progress.”
Shum Jr, on the other hand, is upbeat, telling PopSugar: “We have a lot of get-togethers. I’m not sure if it’s a way for Awkwafina, Jimmy, and the rest of the crew to fill the vacuum of not being able to work together in that capacity, but we always try to find ways to see each other.
“The love is there, and if we ever get the chance to do it again, the love will surely radiate on that screen.”
