Crazy Rich Asians was a major hit at the box office, gaining fans all over the globe. Because of the film’s huge success, sequels are already being planned. And they’re hitting theaters pretty close together!

In High Demand

Starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh, among other Asian actors, Crazy Rich Asians centered around a down-to-earth Chinese-American female professor dating a fellow Chinese professor. She goes to Singapore for her boyfriend’s best friend’s wedding where she discovers just how rich he really is and meets his socialite family.

The romantic comedy-drama has grossed over $238 million worldwide since its premiere in August 2018. It’s also been nominated for several awards, including two Golden Globes (one for Best Motion Picture Comedy, and Best Motion Picture Comedy Actress for Wu). Since it was pretty popular, fans were clamoring for a sequel.

Back-To-Back

The movie, which was based on author Kevin Kwan’s novel of the same name, now has two sequels in the works. The upcoming sequels, set to start filming in 2020, will be based on Kwan’s follow-up novels China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems. The films will be shot back-to-back to accommodate schedules of the cast.

Warner Bros Pictures

According to film producer Nina Jacobson, the scripts are currently being worked on by Adele Lim and Peter Chiarelli. Director Jon Chu will also return. No casting announcements have officially been made, but it can be assumed that most, if not all, of the original cast will come back.

A More Diverse Hollywood

With a predominately Asian cast, Crazy Rich Asians gave audiences a slight peek into Asian culture. It added more diversity into an ever-growing Hollywood. More and more, films have featured starring casts that better reflect the world we live in.

Another producer on the film, Brad Simpson, agreed, believing that viewers have wanted this for quite some time. “Audiences have been ready for a while. It’s corporate and the studios who are just waking up and this year has proved it,” he said. “The fact that three best picture titles center around Black characters (Black PantherIf Beale Street Could Talk, and BlacKkKlansman) and other Asian characters reflect the sea of change we’re seeing.”
