Yesterday we showed you a brand spankin’ new music video that serves as a direct prequel to the post-apocalyptic gem Turbo Kid, and if that still left you hungry for more, you’ll be happy to know that a direct sequel is now in the works. Yes, Turbo Kid 2 is happening, and we’ve got the first details!
Speaking with Journal de Montreal, filmmakers Anouk Whissell, François Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissel revealed that the follow-up has officially been given the green light. They noted that it “will be a direct sequel to the first film,” picking up directly where we left off last year.
In the meantime, check out that Turbo Kid music video!
Turbo Kid Synopsis:
In a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland.
Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid’s parents, now controls the Wasteland’s most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus’ gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents’ death and get the girl of his dreams.
