The Kissing Booth that released in 2018 revolves around the life of Elle, played by Joey King. Elle is a teenager whose romance with high school’s senior and bad-boy Noah, played by Jacob Elordi, puts her lifelong friendship with Noah’s younger brother Lee, played by Joel Courtney, at stake.
The Kissing Booth 2 is based on the characters from Beth Reekles’s young-adult novel, with the same name. The Kissing Booth 2, helmed by Vince Marcello, picks up with Noah at Harvard and Elle in her senior year of high school. The movie revolves around Elle being confused about whether to focus on her long-distance relationship or on enrolling in her dream college with childhood best friend Lee. The movie also witnesses a new angle between Elle and her new classmate Marco, played by Taylor Zakhar Perez, and between Noah and his new friend in college, played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers. The story is based on the test of Elle’s trust in Noah. The characters of Taylor Zakhar Perez and Maisie Richardson-Sellers are new additions to the franchise of The Kissing Booth. The movie also casts Meganne Young and Molly Ringwald in pivotal roles.
The Kissing Booth 2 had fortunately completed its shooting and post-production before the global pandemic arrived. Since March 2020, everything, including shootings and works of several production houses, has been on a standstill, due to the deadly virus that has forced the world in a lockdown. Movies that had completed its shooting and post-production are now being directly released on OTT platforms instead of having theatrical releases.
