DISCOVER ALL THE INFOS CONCERNING THE CANDYMAN 2 MOVIE RELEASE IN THE CINEMA! RELEASE DATE, RENEWAL, AND MORE.
Candyman is released in theaters on September 29, 2021! If you want to know when Candyman 2 will be released, read on! Candyman is a horror movie directed by Nia DaCosta, which is a reboot and sequel to the movie of the same name released in 1992. It tells the story of Anthony McCoy, a struggling artist who becomes obsessed with the legend of the Candyman and ignores that he has a personal connection to the killer.
The movie is based on Clive Barker’s short story “The Prohibited” and brings the cult classic of the bogeyman into the modern era. Therefore, longtime fans of the sinister legend must be curious whether the Candyman will hit your screens again. Then we are here to help! Here’s everything you need to know about the release of Candyman 2 in theaters!
WHAT RELEASE DATE FOR CANDYMAN 2?
Candyman 2 has not been officially announced, but several factors work in favor of this new movie. Candyman has received excellent reviews and has had a good run in theaters. Candyman is one of the most iconic characters in horror history and studios are always looking to turn familiar names into modern franchises.
All the chances of seeing a sequel are therefore there. We believe that the release date of Candyman 2 should be set for mid-2023 in theaters!
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE CANDYMAN SUITE?
With the new Candyman moving away from the plot of the 1992 movie and the original short story, there is no specific story to tell for Candyman 2. If the end of the 2021 movie is to be believed, Tony Todd is back as Candyman and he wants Brianna to ‘tell everyone, which suggests there is room for the two characters to return either in a direct sequel that follows Brianna or in an independent story that links this sequel to another person’s confrontation with Candyman.
However, one thing Candyman 2 shouldn’t be doing is going the original movie’s route. In 1995, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh ditched most of the elements that made the first movie such an iconic story. Director Rose and star Virginia Madsen have chosen not to return for Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh after the studio rejected Rose’s initial idea of a sequel to the movie. This time around, Candyman 2 is expected to have more consistency between the movies, which was sorely lacking in the original franchise.
