Title prophetic, future Bright indeed with sequel, Will Smith, David Ayer to return


Time to build a cinematic universe!

With what Netflix would call an underreported 11 million viewers over its 'opening frame,' Bright is a proven success. Sure, critics (though I strongly disagree) panned it, but audiences loved it. Thus it's no surprise that Netflix, as I predicted, has green-lit a sequel and all principles seem poised to return.

Thus, expect Brighter, or whatever Netflix calls the sequel, to address many issues people did have with the original: not enough, not enough world-building, not enough magic, felt condensed, etc. There's a chance here to keep this series going for a while, and why not ride that chance all the way to a prolonged life a la The Fast and the Furious. If they can stretch that series to 9 movies, this series can certainly make 5.

We've yet to even see Will Smith learn his first real spell, or fight Voldemort--sorry, the dark lord. When will Killer Croc--sorry, Jacoby, lead the orcs to redemption? 

These and more questions will be answered when Bright delivers a sequel. The project has only been announced and no further details are yet known.
