Love triangle, anyone?
Because To All The Boy I’ve Loved Before sequel is officially official, fans are getting ready for another much-needed dose of Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky’s romance. But what can we look forward to in the highly anticipated sequel?
Details are still scarce, but Lana Condor and Noah Centineo will definitely be back to reprise their roles as Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky. Yay!
“That’s all I know,” Lana told ET. “I know I’m in it! I know Noah’s in it. That’s literally it. And I read the second book, so that’s what I know and I feel like that’s all I need to know until, eventually, things fall into place.”
Janel Parish also confirmed to ET that she’ll be back to play Lara Jean’s big sis, Margot. And get this, she might have a new beau!
Sofia Alvarez, who penned the OG TATBILB script, is also confirmed to be writing the script for the sequel.
TATBILB ended with a new character being introduce – John Ambrose McClaren, who will be playing a major role in the sequel, which will most likely borrow from the series’ second and (possibly) third books.
So far, that’s about all the news on the TATBILB sequel, but being that Lana has read the other books, she shared with ET some of the romantic scenes she hopes will make it to the sequel.
SPOILER ALERT: We’re going to be talking about some plot twists in the second book.
“I love when Lara Jean and John Ambrose go to the [nursing] home,” she shared with ET. “I love the snow… that moment when John Ambrose and her are in the snow playing. When I read that, it was romantic to me. Every little girl thinks about a kiss in the snow with someone that they might like. For me, I would love [it] more than anything ‘cause it’s romantic and cute!”
In the second book, P.S. I Still Love You, Peter and Lara Jean go through a break-up. And when an unexpected snowstorm left Lara Jean, who volunteers at a nursing home, and John Ambrose, who was visiting his grandmother at the same nursing home, stranded there, the two ended up having THAT moment.
“Cinematically, can you imagine how pretty that would be? It would be gorgeous and I want the gorgeous!” she said with a laugh. “But yeah, there’s a lot [of scenes]. I’m really excited. I hope I get the script soon because I think it’s going to be even better than the first one.”
OMG! A Kiss. In the Snow. How romantic!
Lana has just finished playing a role that’s part of a love triangle in an adaptation of the graphic novel Deadly Class. And she’s “excited” to take on another round of a love triangle drama.
“I just did that for Deadly Class, but a different version of it so I’m excited to kind of see how those two compare. There’s nothing more fun than a love triangle,” she excitedly said. “The drama? I live for the drama!”
She also shared some ideas of how she see Lara Jean’s character evolving.
“I think she grazed the surface on finding her own personal confidence towards the end of the first movie and I would love nothing more than for her to be a little bit more stand-up,” Lana opened up to ET. “When Gen is being an a**hole to Lara Jean, Lara Jean just kind of takes it. She’s in her own head, but she’s like (pauses for a moment) ‘OK…’ She just takes it.”
“I hope that in the second movie – and I’m going to strive for this – I hope Lara Jean doesn’t really take it or accept it when she’s treated badly,” she declared. “I want her to be like, ‘No, it’s not OK. You can’t talk to me like that,’ or to find more of her voice and stand up for herself a little bit more, which the first movie kind of set her up for.”
“Reading the book, there are some things that happen to her and I hope that she [won’t] be walked over or pushed over,” she adds. “It’s not like she’s a victim at all. It just doesn’t faze her and she doesn’t think about it. But I do think that there’s a point where you can be like, ‘Hey, you can’t talk to me like that.’ I want her to find her voice.”
“I want to see more of her and Peter, her and John and see where she goes,” she concluded.
We totally do, too!
