Kadokawa announces ‘Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun’ sequel anime

According to a statement made earlier by Kadokawa, a sequel anime to Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun is in development. In September of last year, the TV anime’s second season came to an end. At this point, it is unknown if the new sequel project is a third season of the TV anime Made in Abyss or another film. The adventure of Riko, Reg, and Nanachi was summarized in a recap video that was shared.

Fans are urged to wait for a while in the announcement. The narrative of the sixth layer of the Abyss was concluded in the Made in Abyss season two finale. It is unclear when the sequel might arrive because the manga is just three chapters ahead of the anime at the moment. The current watch order for Kinema Citrus’ anime series Made in Abyss is:

  1. Made in Abyss
    1. Made in Abyss: Marulk’s Daily Life (after the 8th episode of the first season)
    2. Made in Abyss: Journey’s Dawn (recap movie)
    3. Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight (recap movie)
  2. Made in Abyss Movie: Dawn of the Deep Soul
  3. Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun (Season 2)

Sentai Filmworks, which is broadcasting the series on the streaming platform HIDIVE, provided the following description of the sequel: There is no going back for Riko, Reg, and Nanachi, and the only way forward is to the bottom of the Abyss. However, the three friends weren’t the first to enter the unknown. Whatever happened to all the other explorers who braved the Abyss?

Tod Phillips’ sequel ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ starring Joaquin Phoenix to release in October 2024

Joaquin Phoenix reprises his role as Batman’s notorious foe in 2019 Joker’s sequel Joker: Folie à Deux, which will make its big-screen debut on 4 October 2024, five years after the original movie’s release.

The follow-up to the blockbuster Joker is most likely going to be a musical, and Lady Gaga is reportedly set to play Harley Quinn, a partner in crime to the clown prince of crime. Although Joker was intended to be a stand-alone movie, a sequel was inevitable after the R-rated blockbuster made more than one billion dollars worldwide and won Phoenix an Oscar. Phoenix will receive a $20 million paycheck for Folie à Deux, naturally, the actor is asking a hefty sum to reprise his villainous role of Arthur Fleck, given the success of part one.

Following reports that the studio had cancelled its $90 million budgeted Batgirl, despite the DC movie being nearly finished, Warner Bros. announced the release date of Joker 2. The cancellation of Batgirl, which won’t air on HBO Max or in theatres, shocked the industry because studios hardly ever shelve a nearly completed production.

Warner Bros. needs Joker: Folie à Deux to appeal to audiences even without Batgirl on the release schedule to save its floundering DC Comics division. Both DC League of Super-Pets and The Suicide Squad underperformed at the box office during the weekend of their simultaneous theatrical and HBO Max debuts in 2022 and 2021, respectively. Warner Bros. is still struggling with The Flash plans, a $200 million budgeted DC adaptation scheduled for 2023. A recent high point for DC has been the $770 million global box office success of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman.

Todd Phillips will return to helm the sequel after steering Joker to a total of 11 Academy Award nominations. Along with Scott Silver, he also is also co-writing the screenplay.

Warner Bros. cancels animated sequel ‘Scoob!: Holiday Haunt’

After shelving Batgirl, Warner Bros. has decided not to release Scoob!: Holiday Haunt in theatres and HBO Max. Due to the studio’s refocus on theatrically released films, the sequel to the 2020 film Scoob! has been cancelled. Before the merger and new CEO David Zaslav’s appointment, Warner Bros. decided to opt for a same-day-and-date release hybrid model on HBO Max, which did not suit well with their top creative clients.

Scoob! was released in mid-2020, at the height of the pandemic, mostly on VOD, but it did make $28 million at the global box office at the time. That was sufficient for WB to approve Holiday Haunt. The sequel which is shelved cost $40 million to produce, which is another reason for it being cancelled as the studio is looking for cost-cutting measures along with theatrical strategy. Holiday Haunt was supposed to go straight to HBO Max, but the studio no longer wants to make big budgeted projects for the streamer and has been gradually cutting back on HBO Max’s original content.

Scoob’s director Tony Cervone confirmed in July 2021 that a sequel was in development. The holiday film would have followed a younger version of the Mystery Incorporated gang. The official synopsis of the sequel reads: To celebrate Scooby Doo’s first Christmas, 10-year-old Shaggy and the gang take him to a holiday-themed resort owned by Fred’s favourite Uncle Ned. When the park is beset by a ghostly haunting, the kids must solve a 40-year-old mystery to save the resort and show Scooby the true meaning of Christmas.

Frank Welker, Iain Armitage, Ariana Greenblatt, McKenna Grace, Pierce Gagnon, Mark Hamill, Cristo Fernandez, Michael McKean, Andre Braugher, and Ming-Na Wen are the voice actors for Holiday Haunt.
