CLick inside to find out more of what to expect…
Castille, who directed the third and fourth films, will be back for a prequel based on the book “Before” by Anna Todd, as well as a next-generation sequel.
“The After universe just keeps expanding,” she told Teen Vogue. “The fandom, and how excited they are and their input, it really does inspire us all as creators every single day.”
The prequel will be loosely based on the book, which was written from Hardin’s perspective. According to Castille, it will be a part of a larger conversation tied to the book’s story, with an expanded plot.
“He’s gone through a lot of trauma in his family life and in his relationships, and [we’ll] see more of that messiness before he meets Tessa, and how that experience changes him,” she shared.
Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, who has played the role of Hardin for all four current films, will not return to the role, as it will feature a younger version of the character.
As for the next-gen, it will follow Hardin and Tessa’s children, Emery and Auden, as well as their cousin Addy. If you haven’t read the books, these characters were introduced in the last pages and the epilogue of “After Ever Happy.”
For this film, again, Hero nor Josephine Langford will reprise their roles of Hardin and Tessa.
“Emery, Auden, and Addy are quite beloved by the fans. We’ve all gotten a lot of inquiries about what happens with the kids,” Castille said. “It’s really amazing actually to see how interested the fanbase is in those characters, even though they are really only superficially introduced in the books. People have latched onto them because of their love for Hardin and Tessa.”
“We kind of carry the sins of our parents forward with us, so while they’re trying to break out of that, I think carrying that forward for the kids is really important,” she added. “[We’re] exploring a lot of the same themes, love and loss and messy relationships. We’ve all been there, and those are universal themes. Making sure these characters are dynamic and not pulling punches is really important, just as it’s important with Hardin and Tessa. And exploring young love without judging it.”
