17+ Sequels We'll Be Watching Out For In 2019

Diply 4 Oct 2018

Normally when you talk about sequels, people just kind of roll their eyes and complain that no one has original ideas anymore. And sure, sometimes that's true, but other times it means that there are more stories for these characters to tell.

Here's a look at pretty much all of the sequels that are lined up for 2019.

1. Glass — January 18

After M. Night Shyamalan's Split ended with the revelation that the movie took place in the same universe as 2000's Unbreakable, fans couldn't wait to see the two movies come together in an inevitable sequel.

Glass, named after Samuel L. Jackson's character from the first movie, looks to reunite Mr. Glass with David Dunn (Bruce Willis) as they discover another superpowered being in Split's Kevin (James McAvoy).

2. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part — February 8

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Mike Mitchell, Trisha Gum

The Lego Movie was a surprisingly endearing work of animation — and hopefully, the sequel will be able to carry on that tradition. In The Second Part, we see Emmett (Chris Pratt) and Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) fight off Duplo invaders from outer space.

3. Happy Death Day 2U — February 14

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Christopher Landon

Happy Death Day was a bizarre mash-up of genres, putting its main character, Theresa (aka "Tree") (Jessica Rothe) in a Groundhog Day-esque time loop, reliving the same slasher-style day over and over again.

For the sequel, director Christopher Landon is looking to expand on the idea and explain how Tree got stuck in the time loop in the first place.

In Madea (Tyler Perry)'s 10th live-action movie, audiences will see the family come together to plan a funeral in Georgia. Although, according to IMDb, some "unsavory family secrets" may make the already somber occasion even more dramatic.

6. Untitled Avengers: Infinity War sequel — May 3

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Anthony Russo, Joe Russo

We'd love to tell you all about the upcoming sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, but there's not really a whole lot to tell. As of yet, a title hasn't even been announced.

We do have tons of theories about what's going to happen (like this one about how Rocket Raccoon will save the day, or this one about how the Mind Stone is the key to defeating Thanos), but those are all just speculation.

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Chad Stahelski

In what is expected to be the final John Wick movie, Parabellum sees John trying to escape from New York with a $14 million contract out on his life. He's also on the run from The Continental Hotel for breaking their primary rule after killing a High Table member inside the hotel.

8. Godzilla: King of the Monsters — May 31

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Michael Dougherty

At the end of 2014's Godzilla, it was teased that there were more monsters out there than just Godzilla. King of the Monsters realizes that prediction, having Godzilla face off against Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah.

Like Godzilla, the monster battles will be grounded in a human story about a kidnapped paleobiologist (Vera Farmiga), her daughter (Millie Bobby Brown), and her estranged husband (Kyle Chandler).

9. The Secret Life of Pets 2 — June 7

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Chris Renaud

With the original movie grossing a staggering $875 million, it's no wonder that Illumination Studios is ready to try again with a sequel. Not much is known about The Secret Life of Pets 2, except the fact that Patton Oswalt will be taking over the lead role of Max from Louis CK.

10. Dark Phoenix — June 7 

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Simon Kinberg

No one knows that's going to happen with the future of the X-Men franchise. With Disney buying Fox, it's inevitable that the X-Men will be joining the MCU at some point, so it's possible that this is the swan song (phoenix song?) of the long-running mutant franchise.

Dark Phoenix will focus on Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), whose full powers manifest after being hit by cosmic rays. It will be up to the rest of the X-Men to help guide her toward using her powers for good — or stop her at any cost.

11. Justice League: Part 2 — June 14 (?)

IMDb | IMDb

dir. ???

A lot of the future of the so-called DC Extended Universe is unclear, with the first Justice League underperforming both critically and financially.

For now, no cast has been officially confirmed, although rumored villains are either Darkseid or a newly formed Injustice League, possibly bringing Lex Luthor and The Joker together.

12. Untitled Men in Black spin-off — June 14

dir. F. Gary Gray

This one is testing our definition of "sequel," but we couldn't not tell you about the new Men in Black movie. It doesn't appear that Agents J and K (Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones) are the heart of this story, but that doesn't mean that the whole universe is being rebooted. Instead, the movie will focus on Agents M and H (Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth).

No wonder one user commented with, "This is gonna be the best Men In Black movie ever!" on this image from Chris Hemsworth's Instagram.

13. Toy Story 4 — June 21

Slate | Slate

Toy Story 3 was a heartwrenching experience as we watched Andy's toys get given away and sold off from each other. One reunion that we never saw was love interests Woody (Tom Hanks) and Bo Peep (Annie Potts).

Toy Story 4 looks to change that, with Woody and Buzz (Tim Allen) embarking on a mission to find Bo Peep.

Originally titled 48 Meters Down, this follow-up to last summer's shark-based horror survival movie starts fresh with a new cast. Five friends go diving in an underwater city but soon find that they aren't alone among the ruins.

Not much is known about the third Annabelle movie (and the sixth in the Conjuring franchise). The movie will show what happened to the Annabelle doll after winding up in the Warners' museum.

16. Spider-Man: Far From Home — July 5

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Jon Watts

Spider-Man: Far From Home put Marvel in a bit of a sticky spot (pun totally intended). It's not exactly a secret anymore that Spider-Man (Tom Holland) disintegrated at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, so even acknowledging that there is a sequel coming is a spoiler for Avengers 4.

Far From Home will see Peter Parker on a school trip in Europe, eventually doing battle against special effects wizard-turned-criminal Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).

19. It: Chapter Two — September 6

IMDb | IMDb

dir. Andy Muschietti

It was always only half the story. Chapter Two will show the Losers Club as adults, drawn back into the influence and terror of Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård).

The sequel will see stars like Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader playing the adult version of Beverly, Bill, and Richie respectively.
