In the event you’re at present streaming August Moon and lusting after Nicholas Galitzine’s dreamy Hayes Campbell after devouring the Anne Hathaway-led, impossibly sugary, feather-light wafer that’s The Thought of You, now we have excellent news. The previous Prince Charming will likely be again on screens earlier than you realize it, to embody one other swoon-worthy royal: the British Prince Henry, in a sequel to the frothy Amazon hit Purple, White & Royal Blue. Becoming a member of him? Taylor Zakhar Perez, naturally, within the a part of Alex Claremont-Diaz, his boyfriend and the primary son of the USA.

The announcement got here on Might 9, at a post-screening Q&A for the movie in Los Angeles attended by Galitzine, Perez, the primary movie’s director Matthew López, and Casey McQuiston, the writer of the bestseller on which it’s based mostly, as all of them celebrated the success of the unique film and continued its marketing campaign for an Emmy nomination.

“These two, over the previous couple of months, have been on lots of purple carpets, and the factor that they preserve getting requested is, ‘Are we getting a sequel?’” Leisure Weekly’s Gerrad Corridor advised the viewers on the occasion, nodding to Galitzine and Perez. “They usually’re like, ‘It’s lower than us.’ It’s as much as these different folks. So I’m going to ask the opposite folks. Matthew, is there going to be a sequel and are you engaged on something?” In a video captured by the publication, López might be seen grinning. “Sure, there’s going to be a sequel to the film.” Cue literal screams of pleasure. Then, a brand new promotional picture appeared on the massive display screen above the panel, exhibiting a messy wedding ceremony cake subsequent to the phrases, ‘Fancy one other slice?’” Who wouldn’t?

Plot particulars are, after all, being stored underneath wraps, although we do know that López is penning the script alongside McQuiston, which means the follow-up ought to—fingers crossed—do justice to its predecessor. Maintain your eyes peeled for extra casting information (we’re taking a look at you, Uma Thurman) and let the hypothesis over the following stage of Henry and Alex’s relationship start. May a royal wedding ceremony be on the playing cards? Properly, Galitzine did seek advice from Thurman as his “mother-in-law” on the Met Gala purple carpet earlier this week, so we’ve bought our fingers crossed.
