Also in this week’s 7 Days Of Queer: Our Flag Means Death, The Wheel Of Time, Bottoms and more
BY NIC CROSARA, STILLS BY PRIME VIDEO
Last month, Prime Video released its highly anticipated book-to-screen adaptation of Red, White & Royal Blue and fans instantly fell in love with this MLM romance and are already demanding a follow-up. But could a sequel be on the cards?
The good news is that director Matthew López is open to it. “I would love to do a sequel, if we have the right story,” he told Teen Vogue. “There has to be a better reason than simply the desire to make one, there has to be a compelling story reason. I don’t think a sequel is a bad idea, but I don’t think a sequel for the sake of doing a sequel is necessarily sufficient.”
And that’s not all. The film would not exist without queer and non-binary author, Casey McQuiston, who penned the hugely popular novel. They have previously addressed the potential for a sequel: “I have plenty of ideas for stories set in this world and would love a chance to explore one of them some day. I would be surprised if you’ve seen the last of Alex and Henry.”
I think I can speak on behalf of our readers when I say that if a sequel is in the works, we hope to see The L Word’s Sarah Shahi reprise her role as Zahra.
