As was highly publicised before release, Netflix has already scheduled a sequel, something that has now been officially confirmed.
Alongside the announcement, Netflix released a video featuring two orcs pretending to audition for the upcoming sequel — Joel Edgerton plays the leading orc in the original.
Directed by David Ayer, Bright sets itself in an alternate present-day LA, where Will Smith plays a cop partnered with the LAPD’s first orc officer (Edgerton).
In this world, orcs are an oppressed race, elves are the highest-ranking in society, fairies are deemed to be pests, and dragons roam the sky. Wands, magic, and prophecies also play large roles in the gritty comedy-action.
Bright is currently available on Netflix, while the sequel does not yet have a release date. Smith and Egerton are expected to return with Ayer likely back as director.
