“Crazy Rich Asians” rapidly became one of the summer’s biggest successes when it was released in 2018. The film stars Constance Wu as Rachel, a New York professor who learns that the family of her lover Nick (Henry Golding) is extraordinarily affluent. Critics and audiences alike were blown away by the success of “Crazy Rich Asians,” a film based on Kevin Kwan’s novel of the same name that went on to make more than $200 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo’s estimates.
Now that Chu has created “In the Heights,” one of the most highly awaited films of 2021, many “Crazy Rich Asians” fans are curious about what will happen in the film’s sequel. Kwan has already written two sequels to his original novel, both of which are waiting to be converted into films at Warner Bros. by August of this year (via Deadline). “China Rich Girlfriend” and “Rich People Problems” are both under pre-production, according to Chu’s IMDb page, which has director credits for both projects. “Crazy Rich Asians 2,” which is expected to be titled “China Rich Girlfriend” after the second novel in the series, is eagerly anticipated by fans of the original film.
Announcement of the sequel for Crazy Rich Asians 2
According to the latest information available, there is no guaranteed release date for the second “Crazy Rich Asians” film. Following an announcement made in December 2018 (via Collider), the two sequels were originally intended to be shot back-to-back in 2020. It is currently unknown why production has been postponed even further. The first sequel will most likely not be released this year, at least not in its current state of development.
As a result of the influenza epidemic, it’s probable that the release of “Crazy Rich Asians 2” may be pushed back even more in the coming months. According to Screen Rant, the production was delayed in part due to the hectic schedules of the film’s actors, many of whom rose to prominence as a result of the original film’s success. When the sequel is released in cinemas (or on HBO Max), fans will be waiting with bated breath to find out what happens after the events of the first film.
What actors and actresses will appear in Crazy Rich Asians 2?
Despite the lack of official confirmation, it’s likely that the core cast will return.
Golding is game, but is unclear when it will happen. He informed us: “They’re still working on Kevin Kwan’s two books and trying to find a way to turn them into films. It’s a tricky procedure since a novel may not make as much sense on television as it does in print. So you have to be creative to keep it fresh.
“Also, since we’re the first to compete, everyone has great expectations. It won’t be as simple as the first. It’s definitely a work in progress.”
Shum Jr is optimistic, telling PopSugar: “We always have reunions. I’m not sure whether that’s how Awkwafina, Jimmy, and the rest of the team try to make up for not being able to work together in that capacity.
“The love is there, and if we ever get the chance to do another one, the love will surely glow on that screen.”
No new faces have been announced yet, but there will be many new characters. Carlton Bao, Rachel’s long-lost brother, and Colette Bing, a fashion blogger who exclusively wears couture.
Colette is spoilt by her father and will undoubtedly add bling to the already high-fashion movie.
Roxanne Ma, Colette’s personal assistant, is likewise extremely devoted. Some have already suggested Lana Condor and Kelly Marie Tran for Colette and Roxanne, respectively.
What’s the plot of Crazy Rich Asians 2?
According to the novels, if a sequel is made, it would centre on Rachel’s quest to find her birth father, who she was told perished in a car accident before she was ever born. To avoid giving anything away, Rachel enlists the services of a private investigator hired by the family of her man and learns that not only is her father still alive, but he also happens to be one of China’s wealthiest men..
She meets her half-brother Carlton and his on-again, off-again girlfriend Collette when she invites her father to her wedding. To wrap off her whirlwind romance with her half-brother and his new fiancée, Rachel plans to take a world tour on her honeymoon.
Although it’s possible that “Crazy Rich Asians 2” may make some adaptation adjustments to the novel, the extent of such alterations is yet unknown. Modifications might range from little text adjustments to major shifts in the story’s arc. According to Kevin Kwan, sequel-making is a risky endeavour, but he has a good grasp of the stakes. When it comes to “Crazy Rich Asians,” the author believes that a sequel ought to outdo the original. In the words of Kwan, “This ought to be ‘The Godfather 2,'” (via Variety). If it doesn’t measure up to the first, it’s not good enough.
