There’s trouble on the horizon for Elle (Joey King) and Noah (Jacob Elordi).
The Kissing Booth 2 is making its way to Netflix in just a few weeks, and thanks to a new trailer, we now know what’s up with the movie’s central couple—and it’s not good.
Not only is Noah going to Harvard on the other side of the country, he seems to have made a new and beautiful friend named Chloe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), and Elle also has a new and beautiful friend named Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez).
Plus, there’s Elle’s ever troublesome friendship with Lee, who has gotten over her dating his brother, but now has to deal with the fact that she might abandon their plans to go to Berkeley together to follow Noah to Harvard. (Cue Elle Woods: “What, like it’s hard?”)
It all makes for a truly complicated senior year.
While we wait for the movie to finally premiere, take a look at everything we currently know about it!
The Kissing Booth Returns
The Kissing Booth 2 will premiere on Netflix on July 24.
Per the official trailer, which dropped Monday, “The Kissing Booth 2″ brings back leads Elle Evans, Lee Flynn and Noah Flynn — played by Joey King, Joel Courtney and Jacob Elordi, respectively — and introduces total “snack” Marco, a new classmate played by Taylor Zakhar Perez.
It also brings back writer-director-producer Vince Marcello as well as Elle and Lee’s fundraising kissing booth, though it doesn’t dare give away which tall, dark hunk our leading lady is eventually going to smooch.
“The Kissing Booth 2″ finds newly reconciled lifelong buds Elle and Lee starting their senior year of high school while Elle’s boyfriend, Noah, chimes in from Harvard, the school he wants Elle to attend next year.
(But wait! She promised long ago to go to Berkeley with Lee! Just like she promised Lee in “KB1″ that his brother Noah was off limits romantically! Hmm. We know how that one worked out. And thus one of the story lines is set.)
But Elle is also dealing with jealousy over Noah, who is surrounded by beautiful girls at college, and “OMG girls” Olivia, Mia and Gwyneth are doing nothing to help as usual.
“With different ZIP Codes, breakups are basically automatic,” an OMG explains after Elle says she and Noah haven’t broken up.
And Marco? He’s tall, dreamy and appears to make Elle turn into a huge dork, just like Noah used to do.
Will Elle and Lee make up after divergent college dreams rock their friendship? Will Noah and Elle stay together after he goes out with “the guys” and leaves his cellphone at home? And will anyone wind up with Marco?
We really don’t care about those answers right now, of course. Too busy counting down to July 24, when “KB2″ goes live on Netflix.
In late May, King (who plays heroine Elle Evans) unveiled the release date of the movie during a YouTube livestream. While doing a puzzle in quarantine (who among us), King revealed that The Kissing Booth 2 will be released on July 24, 2020.That’s more than two years after the original film was released, when it became one of Netflix’s most-watched titles of the summer. A sequel was confirmed back in February 2019.
A new trailer teases relationship drama for Elle and Noah.
The first look at The Kissing Booth 2 suggests new hurdles for Elle and Noah’s relationship. In the trailer, fans are introduced Chloe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), a college girl Noah gets close to while away at Harvard, and Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez), a classmate of Elle’s with whom she forms a connection while Noah is miles away.
The original cast and creative team are returning.
Like other Netflix rom-com franchises, including To All the Boys I’ve Loved Beforeand A Christmas Prince, the original cast is returning. King will reprise her role as Elle, a late bloomer stuck in a love triangle, in addition to executive producing the sequel. Joel Courtney will return as her best friend Lee and Jacob Elordi as her textbook bad-boy boyfriend Noah. Molly Ringwald and Meganne Young will also co-star in the film.
Vince Marcello is returning as director, writer, and producer on the movie. Jay Arnold will co-write the script with Michele Weisler, Ed Glauser, and Andrew Cole-Bulgin as producers. Adam Friedlander serves as executive producer.
The movie will follow the long-distance relationship plot of the book series.
The Kissing Booth is based on the book series of the same name by Beth Reekles, which she originally self-published on Wattpad. Going the Distanceexplores the ways Elle and Noah’s newly-labeled relationship is tested when he heads off to college.
An official synopsis of the film suggests Elle’s best friend Lee could be a shoulder to lean on while Noah is away:
Elle Evans (King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Elordi). But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Courtney), and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs.
Joey King and Jacob Elordi reunited for the sequel after splitting in real-life.
Another reason fans have been curious about a sequel to The Kissing Booth—an inevitable reunion between real-life exes King and Elordi. Some fans speculated about whether or not the Euphoria actor (now linked to his co-star Zendaya) would return after his March 2019 breakup with King.
Alas, the former couple put their past behind them when working on The Kissing Booth 2. King spoke about keeping it professional with her ex on the podcast Mood With Lauren Elizabeth. “I’m a fan with how [the film] resonated with the world, it resonated with me. So going back and doing that and making the sacrifice of what, obviously, everyone is thinking about—outwardly addressing, but what I’m kind of on the sly addressing, making those sacrifices was totally worth it,” she explained.
King also opened up about working with her other leading man, Joel Courtney. “Going back and shooting with one of my real best friends in life, which is Joel Courtney, who plays Lee in the movie, was phenomenal. He’s just like one of my favorite co-stars I’ve ever had, because he’s such a great actor.”
Speaking to Refinery29 last year about the breakup, King said she tried to push out speculation and focus on her work. “All you can really do at that point is shut your phone off and crawl into your sister’s bed and watch Friends with her, because when you’re going through something and the world wants to go through it with you or [wants] to get every piece of detail from you about it, it’s really difficult,” she explained. “Some of these things are just meant for you.”
When we last left off with The Kissing Booth, Elle was seeing Noah off to college at the airport before hopping on his motorcycle, and it wasn’t clear whether Elle and Noah would stay together following their booth dalliance. But though their relationship was up in the air, her friendship with Lee was rock solid again after the two fought because she kept the pretty big secret that she was dating his brother. High drama.
The sequel will likely contain more relationship status answers for fans of the franchise, which began as a book series by Beth Reekles (and before that, as a story on Wattpad that Beth wrote when she was 15 years old). There’s already a sequel book, The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance, and Beth has said the movie is based on the book’s plot.
The official synopsis for the sequel film reads, “Elle Evans (Joey King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs.”
We’ll find out the answer to that last dilemma soon, when The Kissing Booth 2 gets its July 24 release.
Ever since The Kissing Booth was released back in May 2018, fans have been hoping for another sequel that shows Elle, Lee, and Noah back together again. Joey King revealed in a special YouTube live all the details that we’ve been waiting for.
The Kissing Booth 2 will be released on July 24, 2020 which makes it perfect for summer! Along with the special release date, Joey also shared a first look at the upcoming movie and it features our favorite trio back together again.
According to Netflix, “Elle Evans (Joey King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs.”
While it totally sucks to still have to wait a little bit longer for the movie, fans can already figure out what happens next to Elle, Noah, and Lee in the sequel book, Going the Distance by Beth Reekles, that’s already out.
‘The Kissing Booth 2’: Joey King Reveals Premiere Date Of Rom-Com Sequel…With A Puzzle
by admin22nd May 2020
Many people are doing a lot of things like puzzles and face timing with friends and family to pass the time during the quarantine. That said, Netflix decided to reveal the premiere date of the forthcoming rom-com The Kissing Booth 2 by doing both! Star Joey King worked on the puzzle live to reveal that the pic will be dropping on the streaming platform on July 24.
The livestream also included surprise call-in video guests from the film, movie trivia, a fan Q&A and never-before-seen deleted scenes from the first film.
Directed by Vince Marcello from a script he wrote with Jay Arnold, the sequel brings us back to Elle Evans (King) who just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). But now, they have gone in different directions — Noah is off to Harvard while Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome new classmate named Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez). For Noah, he is growing close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) — and this tests Elle’s trust of him.
Based on characters from Beth Reekles’ YA novel, the movie also stars Meganne Young and Molly Ringwald. Watch the video of the puzzle reveal above and check out the new poster below.
“The Kissing Booth 2,” the sequel to Netflix’s popular teen rom-com, will debut on the streaming service this summer. The follow-up — again starring Joey King, Joel Courtney and Jacob Elordi — drops on Netflix on July 24.
King shared the news Thursday night during a live event on YouTube, where she was joined by fellow cast members to share secrets about the upcoming movie.
“The Kissing Booth” became a breakout hit among teen audiences when it premiered in 2018. At the time, Netflix reported that it was one of its most-rewatched original films that year. Though Netflix rarely provides statistics in context, the company’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said “The Kissing Booth” was “one of the most-watched movies in the country, and maybe in the world.”
The original film follows King’s character, a high schooler who runs into trouble when she starts to fall for her best friend’s older brother. The sequel’s tagline is “Rules can be broken, but so can hearts.”
Molly Ringwald, Meganne Young and Carson White are reprising their roles from “The Kissing Booth,” while Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Taylor Zakhar Perez have joined the cast.
Vince Marcello directed “The Kissing Booth 2” from a screenplay he wrote with Jay Arnold. Both were adapted from novels by Beth Reekles.
The Kissing Booth 2 Is Coming to Netflix, With Original Cast Returning
by admin27th June 2019
Pucker up. “The Kissing Booth 2” is happening on Netflix, one of its stars, Joel Courtney, said on Twitter on Thursday. The sequel will reunite many of the team that made the original breakout hit, including Joey King and Jacob Elordi.
“Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! It’s official!,” Courtney told his Twitter followers. “YUP!!! WE ARE GETTING A SEQUEL!!!,” said his co-star Joey King.
The YA-skewed movie went big on Netflix with the streamer’s content chief, Ted Sarandos, saying that at one point it was “one of the most-watched movies in the country, and maybe in the world.”
Plot details for “The Kissing Booth 2” are thin on the ground. Indie producer Komixx, which has carved out a niche in the sought-after YA space, will make the new film.
The first movie was adapted from a Beth Reekles novel, which was originally self-published on the Wattpad digital platform. It was directed by Vince Marcello, who will also helm the new movie, from a screenplay written by him and Jay Arnold.
It will be produced by Marcello and Michele Weisler, who was also on the first film, with Komixx’s Andrew Cole-Bulgin and Edward Glauser.
Pre-production is underway, and shooting is expected to begin later this year. There are no confirmed dates, but the film is likely to drop on Netflix in 2020.
