Hopeless romantics and rom-com addicts unite: To All The Boys: PS I Still Love You is coming — and it’s almost here.
It’s been about a year and a half since the release of the first movie, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, on Netflix. And fans have been sitting on the edge of their seats to see how Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky’s story will continue.
In the sequel’s trailer, it shows one of LJ’s crushes from Model UN make a comeback: John Ambrose McClaren. It sets up a new experience for LJ: a real relationship that isn’t determined by a signed contract, and the realization that you can have feelings for other people even when you’re dating someone.
Boom: a love triangle is set up for LJ. Oh, the disappointment of her reality.
As Lara Jean says in the Netflix trailer, “I thought having a boyfriend meant the idea of boys left your mind completely. I didn’t want to be thinking of what might have been, but I was.”
In several interviews, LJ actress Lana Condor talks about several of the things that makes her most proud of the film — including the Asian representation and talk of boundaries within relationships.
Condor was born in Vietnam and is one of the few Korean-American characters that is seen starring in romantic comedies.
“I was waiting on top of the stairs right before we started rolling and it hit me all at once how special that moment was because we don’t get Cinderella moments a lot,” Condor said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “As a young girl, I never got to see a Cinderella moment where the girl looked like me.”
The film is set to release Feb. 12 with the third film in the series already confirmed by actors and film directors.
