We Can Be Heroes Is Officially Getting a Sequel!
The Christmas season of 2020 was home to various exciting film releases. From Soul to Wonder Woman 1984, it seems like everybody was streaming during their locked down Christmas. Most of the movies that released brought in plenty of divisive opinions, from lovers to haters. We Can Be Heroes was one of these Christmas releases, but the film managed to bring in fans of all ages who fell in love with its simple story and child-friendly fun. So, we’re pleased to report that We Can Be Heroes is officially getting a sequel!
We Can Be Heroes Will Get The Sequel It Deserves
We Can Be Heroes tells the tale of the children of superheroes. Like their parents, they all have some sort of power. Some of them are a little odd, like being able to turn one’s face into anything, while others are powers we expect, like super (shark) strength. When faced up against an alien invasion, these kids must work together to rescue their parents (and the world.) It may be formulaic, but it’s filled with a passion for creative filmmaking. It’s charming, motivational, and a good starter film to a franchise with a lot of potentials.
In a recent announcement through the NetflixFilm Twitter account, it’s been announced that a sequel is officially underway. Robert Rodriguez is already confirmed to be returning as the writer and director.
This news comes alongside the announcement that over 44 million households watched the film!
