The Big Release Of The Kissing Booth 2
If you haven’t already, grab your lip gloss and pucker up; The Kissing Booth 2 is here! On July 24th, Netflix released the much-anticipated sequel of the film. No surprise, the film was one of the top-streamed films that weekend – Pucker Up: The Kissing Booth 2
This is remarkable considering the first film only ranked third at the time. It also takes the prize of being one of the most-streamed films on Netflix. Wow! Forbes even described it as “one of the most popular movies ever on the platform”.
Who’s In It?
The film stars some of your favourite actors bringing life to the beloved characters, such as Joey King portraying Elle Evans, Joel Courtney as Lee Flynn and Jacob Elordi as Noah Flynn. Swoon!
Glancing at their social media, it’s clear that these stars are the best of friends off-screen as well, and this just makes it even better to watch, am I right? Follow them here to witness the friendship and fun: @joeyking @joel_courtney @jacobelordi
Plot-wise, you can expect a rollercoaster ride. Elle and Noah have just had a romantic summer together and everything seemed to be going their way. That is until summer ended and Noah is off to Harvard leaving Elle to tackle senior year in high school all alone.
Will these two lovers find a mid-way, or will long-distance end it all for them? We don’t want to give too much away. No spoilers here, see for yourself! Check out the trailer here:
Filmed On Your Doorstep
Want to know the craziest part? Most of the scenes in the film were actually shot in Cape Town, South Africa. That’s right, many of the scenes depicted in Los Angeles, California in the film were actually filmed right here in our own country.
We don’t blame them, it could definitely pass as the real deal. That explains why many of the cast members are actually South African themselves. Actresses depicting characters Vivian (Frances Sholto-Douglas) and Mia (Camilla Wolf) are both from our very own country. SA represent!
The good news for fans is that a third film is already set to be released in 2021. Mark your calendars!
