While Trolls opens this week, the directors Walt Dohrn and Mike Mitchell, from Dreamworks, have been doing the press circuit and talking about other projects in the works…
And one in particular – not Shrek 5, that will get a post later – caught our attention: A Sky High sequel.
‘What’s Sky High?’, we hear you young ‘uns ask, well: “Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.”
It features a school where super-powered students learn to be heroes (and villains) and star Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston – and, fact fans, The Flash’s Danielle Panabaker – and, while not a great outing, it’s got fun ideas throughout and, given how Hollywood (and the world) are superhero mad right now, we aren’t surprised this is possibly being resurrected.
Mitchell said: “We’re working on a sequel to Sky High. We’ll see how that goes.”
Now it’s far from confirmation and there’s no cast or plot even almost known yet but it’s definitely one to file under ‘curious and exciting.’
Thoughts on this one, superfriends?
