When the movie was released in 2017, the Greatest Showman 1 did well in theaters and earned a whopping $435 million at the box office. It was an obvious success and it ended on a good note. There was no speculation about the second part of this film. All the questions raised in the movie were answered.
It is based on the real-life circus master PT Barnum. However, it looks like there is a sequel coming for this movie. It was said by the director of the film that when a movie does this well in a cinema. It automatically has a demand for a sequel. Well, now the question is what is in the sequel? When will it come out? Who will be the cast? Let’s get into the details and get the answers we need.
Who is in the cast of The Greatest Showman 2?
At this point, the biggest question is will Hugh Jackman be a part of the sequel. As per the interview, Zac gave in The Graham Norton Show, he said that Hugh is working on all sorts of things including a one-man show. It still remains unclear as Hugh himself said that there are a lot of talks happening but nothing is confirmed.
He also said he thinks it will be the best thing to do, so he will be a part of it. It is also said that the next part could follow one of the co-stars from the previous film like Zac or Zendaya. However, that remains unclear as of now. We hope all of them reprise their roles and we get to see our favorite characters back.
What is the plot of The Greatest Showman 2?
Originally, the first part completed what it started and there was no question that went unanswered. So, it is unlikely that it will begin from where it left off. It may focus on Barnum’s different areas in life in the sequel. Just for an example, he served two terms in the Connecticut legislature. But, it doesn’t seem directly to be a usual musical type material.
However, it will be interesting to see if the makers can tell this story in the usual dance and music style. If they could pull it, it would become a good entertaining political musical. And, it would be engaging and impressive. Barnum also faced various spiritualists and mediums in his life. So, the upcoming plot may be based on him uncovering hoaxes.
There are also speculations that we may see focus on the co-star and see what their life was like. It has not been confirmed or denied. There are a lot of theories on what could happen next. We may also see something unfold in the sequel which may connect originally to the first part. (check: The OA Season 3.)
No confirmed details have been released related to the plot so there are just wild guesses that we can make. What do you think will happen next? (check: Netflix’s Black Summer Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot: Here’s All The Information.)
When will The Greatest Showman 2 trailer be out?
The production of the film has not begun so it is hard to say when the trailer will be out. If we are going to see this film coming out in December of 2021 than likely the trailer will be released in mid or a little later than mid of 2021. You can watch the trailer of the first film below.
The Greatest Showman 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
As of now, no date has been announced for the film. As we all know the first part was released almost after a year of the shoot. If the movie starts shooting towards the end of 2020 we may see it in theaters by the end of 2021 on Christmas. Well, it really depends on the shoot conditions at the moment as shooting is still not possible.
