We can't wait for the next Yes Day!
This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of May 11, 2021.
In case you haven't checked Netflix lately, the streaming giant recently released 'Yes Day,' a heartwarming comedy film that's perfect to stream with the whole family.
The movie is adapted from the children's book of the same name by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. It follows the adventures of the Torres family, who goes on a 'Yes Day,' a designated day where the parents can only say yes to their children.
What started as a sound solution to resolve familial conflict took a messy turn, which eventually (thankfully) brought the family closer.
The film stars Jennifer Garner, Édgar Ramírez, and Jenna Ortega.
The family comedy film was released on Netflix in mid-March 2021, with the ending dialogue teasing a possible sequel.
So is the sequel happening? Here is everything we know.
Netflix has not ordered a sequel for the family comedy film yet, but our hopes are high. The family film has proven to be a trending hit after successfully entering the top 10 in numerous territories.
In the US, 'Yes Day' immediately shot to the number 1 spot within 24 hours since its release on the platform. The film also managed to infiltrate the top 10 lists in different countries across the globe.
Hopefully, the viewership and positive reception will entice the streaming giant to come up with a sequel.
We are still waiting for Netflix to greenlit the sequel, so there is still no release date yet. The film premiered on Netflix on March 12, 2021. If we are lucky, we might see a sequel 2 to 3 years from now (assuming the film gets renewed soon and immediately start production).
The first film sees Allison, who struggles after knowing that her children think of her as a dictator because she only says no to all their requests. A football coach who heard of her and her husband discussing their predicament suggested trying to have a Yes Day, a special day where they say yes to their kids for 24 hours. Soon enough, the parents find themselves donning crazy outfits, ordering a massive $40 sundae, then going through a car wash with the windows down.
The first movie rounded up the overarching plot pretty well for the Torres family. The family was able to fix the mess in their 'Yes Day' antics, including the massive foam explosion brought by Nando's nerd party. Despite a few things getting out of hand, Yes Day managed to bring the Torres family closer. Before the film ended, Allison said that she's looking forward to the "next" Yes Day, while Carlos takes a more strict approach with the children. This suggests that if a sequel happens, it will feature another crazy Yes Day adventure for the Torres family. Allison will likely evolve past her 'dictator' ways, and the children could be even closer to her.
'Yes Day' 2 is not confirmed yet, so while we continue to wait for further updates regarding the sequel, we will leave you with the first film's trailer in the meantime. Haven't seen 'Yes Day' yet? Head over to Netflix now!
