Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation have set “The Boss Baby 2” for 2021.

A sequel to “The Boss Baby” is in the works, and will hit a theater near you on March 26, 2021, with Alec Baldwin reprising his role as a titular character from the first movie. DreamWorks and Universal Pictures announced another “Boss Baby” film on official Twitter yesterday, but there’s no information about other cast members. It has been rumored that “The Boss Baby 2” will reunite the director, producer, and creative team from the original film, which means director McGrath and screenplay writer Michael McCullers will be back to the new project.

The movie details

Just like the first film, “The Boss Baby 2” is based on a famous picture book written by Marla Frazee. Will this movie get voices of Steve Buscemi, Lisa Kudrow, Miles Bakshi, and Jimmy Kimmel? To this, DreamWorks representatives have refused to comment, claiming that it’s too early to confirm the cast members. Released in the last week of March, the film did excellent business at the box office and grossed an impressive $164 million in North America and over $300 million worldwide.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the creative team behind the first film will return for a follow-up. DreamWorks Animation gave the go-ahead on production earlier this month and will reunite with Alec Baldwin and Universal for this new project.

The casting details and plot

Not only the casting details but its plot is kept under wrap. Also, there’s no information about whether Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro will compose its score or not. If you had watched the first film, you must be familiar with the fact that “The Boss Baby” ended with a magical baby formula that allowed him to dominate the world.

Maybe in the new film, the child will get converted into a young man.

DreamWorks canceled a couple of projects before the release “The Boss Baby,” including “Larrikins” and “The Croods 2.” The studio is likely to restart their production by the end of 2017. As of May 27, 2017, “The Boss Baby” has grossed over $165 million in Canada and the United States and over $304 million in other countries against a budget of $120 million.

In North America, this film opened alongside “The Zookeeper’s Wife” and “Ghost in the Shell.” “The Boss Baby” managed to gross around $35 million from 3,450 screens in its opening. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 56% based on 132 reviews, while Metacritic assigns it a score of 57 out of 100 based on 34 critics.
