The Netflix Corporation is developing a sequel towards one of their most beloved movies in 2017, Bright. This information comes directly from David Ayer, who developed the original incarnation of Bright and expressed that the sequel is in development. Rumours circulated for a prolonged period that Netflix was working on a follow-up film for the Bright franchise, with confirmation coming in the new year. Ayer expressed that numerous fans have requested for a sequel, providing him with insight on how it could be approached via the storyline. Potential storylines can include greater insight into the previous war amongst the Elves and Orcs.
When the original film was released in 2017, it met negative reviews from the critics. Viewers provided it with an average rating, with a select group expressing their unwavering commitment to this universe. This didn’t stop criticism from reviewers, claiming that he focused on clichés and didn’t provide a heartfelt storyline. These horrible reviews came after David’s previous film, the Suicide Squad.

However, David Ayer has the chance to redeem himself with the Bright Sequel.
Overall, eleven million individuals watched this film on its Netflix opening weekend. This was one of the highest-debuting films for Netflix in 2017, which prompted the immediate development for its sequel. Fans won’t have to wait to see Joel Edgerton and Will Smith take to the streets of Los Angeles.
