7 May – The mischievous titular bunny of "Peter Rabbit" will be back for more mayhem when the sequel hops onto the big screen in two years' time.
Yes, a follow-up has been greenlit for the CGI live-action comedy drama, according to Variety, with director Will Gluck returning to write and helm the second instalment.
There's no word yet on whether Rob Lieber, who co-wrote the first movie, which was based on Beatrix Potter's series of "Peter Rabbit" stories, will be involved in the sequel.
The cast has not been revealed either so it is unknown whether James Corden will be back to voice Peter or whether anyone from the previous cast will be reprising their roles, such as Rose Byrne as Bea and Domhnall Gleeson as Thomas McGregor.
Despite some of the negative feedbacks it's received when it opened in February (or March in some territories) this year, "Peter Rabbit" managed to take in USD115 million in the U.S. and even became the biggest non-Bond Sony Pictures title in the U.K. with its USD55.7 million collection.
The sequel to "Peter Rabbit" is currently slated for a 7 February 2020 release in the U.S. and 27 March 2020 in the U.K.
