Look Both Ways (2022) shows Natalie (Lili Reinhart) on the eve of her college graduation. Her life diverges into parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and remains in her hometown to raise her child, and another in which she moves to LA to pursue her dream career. It is based on the novel written by Jason Reynolds and illustrated by Alexander Nabaum.
Look Both Ways sequel potential release date
The Netflix film was released on August 17th, 2022 on Netflix. It is the first movie that depicts two sides of one situation extremely well. The cursed statement of “what if?” can haunt anyone, and this movie shows that. If anything, it highlights how to move forward and take those risks to focus on your journey as an individual. There is no word yet if Netflix will make a sequel to this movie because there is also no follow-up to the novel written by Jason Reynolds. Natalie’s story is perfectly tied up by the end of this movie as well.
Look Both Ways sequel cast – who can be in it?
Natalie’s life is in two different realities and the people around her are super important to her future. The entire cast including Lili Reinhart, Danny Ramirez, Aisha Dee, David Corenswet, Luke Wilson, and Andrea Savage would all return. Family is what’s so important to Natalie in this first film that it would only make sense for the entire cast to return to fill those spots in her life and continue her story.
Look Both Ways sequel plot – what can Look Both Ways 2 be about?
What would be interesting in a sequel to this movie is that Natalie chooses one side. The writer of the next film could just focus on Natalie and her family, or Natalie and her animation career in Los Angeles. The issue is what would be more interesting to the audience? Or perhaps, they could continue showing both of those sides throughout the film again to see how much she has learned in each part of her life. Either way, Lili Reinhart’s Natalie is a joy to watch and a sequel showing both realities again, maybe five years down the road to see how much has changed would work well.
