Thousands Sign Petition for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Sequel
Although it’s only been out for less than two weeks, the Netflix adaptation of Jenny Han’s book, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, is a global phenomenon. Between the swoon-worthy character that is Peter Kavinsky and the incredible lead actors that are Lana Condor and Noah Centineo, as well as the amazing representation of the Asian-American community that the story provides, we honestly understand why people are literally OB-SESSED with this movie.
If you weren’t familiar with Jenny’s novel before the Netflix film premiered, you might not know that it’s actually the first in trilogy that follows Lara Jean and Peter as they navigate their blossoming relationship. We know — there’s MORE to their story?!
That said, fans are doing everything in their power to ensure execs at Netflix know they want the other books represented on screen and actually created a petition to push for a sequel, which has already gotten thousands of signatures.
“If you want MORE Lara Jean — and definitely MORE Peter Kavinsky — please sign my petition calling on Netflix to hurry up and make more sequels to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” the petition’s creator writes.
In addition to pushing for P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever, Lara Jean to become movies, fans also want actor Israel Broussard, who plays Josh, to be recast if the sequels get greenlit. The 24-year-old was recently forced to apologize after old, offensive tweets were brought to light.
“Please recast actor Israel Broussard, who played Lara Jean’s boy-next-door crush, Josh. Recently, Broussard’s racist, homophobic, and offensive past tweets have been widely shared online — and this type of hate has NO PLACE in the wonderful To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before universe. This movie is a trailblazer in having an Asian American actress as the romantic lead and so it’s particularly upsetting that Broussard has made racist jokes about Asian people, along with hateful comments on the Black Lives Matter movement — and even going as far to support horrific extremist conspiracy tweets calling the school-shooting at Sandy Hook a ‘hoax.'”
With the amount of love that’s been swirling around TATBILB, we’d honestly be surprised if a sequel is NOT announced in the near future.
