Netflix Cancels ‘Bright 2’ Due To Will Smith Oscars Slap


It appears that Netflix will not be moving forward with a sequel to Bright. While Bright 2 was confirmed in 2018 with an orc audition tape, Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw revealed that Netflix has “abandoned plans to make a sequel to Bright,” but disclosed that it was not related to recent slap incident at the Oscars.

As far as the upcoming National Geographic Pole to Pole docu-series with Smith, that will be released but filming has been hit with delays after the incident. Production for Pole to Pole was originally slated to take place in spring but has now been pushed to the end of fall.
