‘Turbo Kid 2’ Officially Announced!

Yesterday brought the incredible Le Matos music video for “No Tomorrow”, which acted as a prequel to 2015’s festival darling Turbo Kid (review). It told the story of Apple (Laurence Leboeuf) and her companion, who dies pretty much right away. The ending of the video shows that the companion is the same skeletal remains she has when first introduced in the film.

Now, filmmakers Yoann-Karl Whissell, Anouk Whissell, and François Simard have told Journal de Montreal that a sequel is officially in the works and it will take place immediately after the events of the first film!

Yoann-Karl explains, “It will be a direct sequel to the first film, taking action where it ended. No other details have been released and it isn’t confirmed if Munro Chambers of Leboeuf will be reprising their roles as “The Kid” and Apple, respectively.

In the first film, “In a post-apocalyptic future, The Kid, an orphaned outcast, meets a mysterious girl. They become friends until Zeus, the sadistic leader of the Wasteland, kidnaps her. The Kid must face his fears, and journey to rid the Wasteland of evil and save the girl.

    Nice!
    Oh come on! If Laurence Leboeuf reprise her role in the prequel, obviously she will be glad to do it again in the sequel. Hope there will be more stuff, expecting some mutants or a cult also a new ally would be cool to see.

          Hipster? Seriously dude, I think you and I evolved in parallel universes that have suddenly collided. I seriously don’t understand anyone who doesn’t love Turbo Kid.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Well as long as you enjoyed, you’ve nothing to worry about.

  • Josh Evans

    I really wanted to like the first one…perhaps this one will be a bit better.

  • RawBeard

    I really enjoyed the first film and it ticked all the right boxes for me. My only issue is that the main Villain wasn’t very good.

  • Saturn

    Well I enjoyed the original movie enough to be interested in a sequel, but felt a little bit let down by it after all the hype. It was a good movie though, something a little different.
    So yeah, I’ll watch the second one with an open mind.

    This is the best news I have heard since…August 28, 2015

    Turbo Kid was truly an experience in excellent film making, great productions and performances all around. It had heart, which for all of it’s absurdities, puts it above most recent films. A coming of age love story…doused in buckets of fake blood. Bring on some more, I’ll bring my umbrella.

    I hope the sequel is filmed in the same quarry as the original! It was like watching ourselves as kids, playing out our own movie.
