Malorie (Bird Box 2): Everything We Know So Far

Malorie and her children must put on their blindfolds and venture into the dangerous world filled with malevolent entities once again.

A Bird Box sequel is currently in the works, author Josh Malerman reveals.

What most people don't know is that before the post-apocalyptic horror-thriller film hit Netflix, it was first a compelling novel written by Malerman in 2014.

Malerman revealed that he has already completed the follow-up book.

The sequel is titled Malorie based on Sandra Bullock's character on Bird Box.

Here's everything we know so far.

Bird Box

What Is The Plot Of Malorie? 

Malorie will pick up the narrative from the ending of the first film. To give you a quick refresher, towards the end of Bird Box, we saw Malorie taking refuge in the school of blind, together with her two children after a long, precarious, blindfolded journey.

Malevolent supernatural entities have taken over the planet, and whoever looks at them sees their greatest fear, gets insane and commits suicide.

Clinically insane people, on the other hand, have the opposite reaction to the entities. They seem to regain their sanity but develop a cult-like behavior worshipping the mysterious forces.

Along the journey, Malorie and her adopted children were hunted both by the entities and their newfound devotees whose mission is to open people's eyes and bring them to their doom.

The sequel will be set 10 years from the movie's ending.

In an interview with Inverse, Malerman revealed: "Malorie opens at the school for the blind, which is where the movie ends. Then it jumps a few years later, and it really takes off ten years after that."

The Hollywood Reporter shared an extract of the follow-up book revealing Malorie and her children venturing the dangerous world with their blindfolds on again.

The three are forced to get out of the safety of the school after learning that there might be other survivors out there.

Will Malorie Be Adapted Into A Film Too? 

Great news, yes! The novel sequel will be adapted into a film. Malerman revealed in the same interview that the movie sequel is already in development. This isn't surprising considering how successful the film was when it launched on Netflix.

Although the film received mixed reviews by critics, it broke Netflix records with 47 Million views within seven days since release.

When Will Malorie Release? 

The book sequel is set to release on July 21. The movie's release date remains unknown as of the moment. Netflix has also not officially announced that a sequel is in development yet. However, we are holding unto Malerman's words, and we're hoping to hear more about the movie sequel soon.

Who Will Be In The Cast Of Malorie Film Sequel? 

There are no official announcements yet, but we are hoping that Sandra Bullock will return to reprise her role as Malorie alongside her adopted children Vivien Lyra Blair as Girl / Olympia and Julian Edwards as Boy / Tom.
