Here is bigger news for all “After’ movies fans! “The ‘After’ universe just keeping expanding” director Castille Landon reported to the press. Two more ‘After’ films, a prequel, and a next-generation sequel are in the works.

The prequel is loosely based on ‘After’ series book Before, which author Anna Todd penned from the perspective of Hardin. But Landon says the movie will be a ‘larger conversation’ tied to what happens before, with a more 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 says. Since it will feature a younger Hardin, Hero, now 23, will not reprise his role in the film, Landon added.

Though there isn’t as much source for the sequel, Landon says the movie will “stay truthful” to what has been established in the franchise. “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 says. “[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 is dynamic and not pulling punches is really important, just as it’s important with Hardin and Tessa as well we will be exploring young love without judging it.”

Both movies will shoot back to back later this year. Fans won’t have to wait long to see their beloved Hardin and Tessa.
