In fact, Noah Centineo’s comments to Entertainment Weeklyconfirm that yes, we should all be reasonably stressed about what’s to come. We know there will be at least one other man vying for Lara Jean’s heart (John Ambrose??? Josh???), and Centineo spilled what he thinks should be in the sequel. Warning: it’s straight up Peter Kavinsky blasphemy.
“I want people to get behind John, I want people to get behind Josh, I want people to get behind all the characters.” Centineo told EW.
“I would like to see fans bicker about it and have it be like the whole Edward Cullen-Jacob thing [from Twilight]. I love that.”
“I think Peter could be more vulnerable and jealous,” Noah Centineo said. “He’s not a super evolved person, so there’s always more to explore and develop.”
At least what Lana Condor hopes to see from Lara Jean is just her being even more of a boss character, which is something we can very much get behind.
“It’s in her nature to not be confrontational, so when people are mean to her or things happen to her that aren’t necessarily great, I think sometimes she’s just like ‘Okay well I guess that’s life,’” Condor said to EW. “What would be exciting for me is for her to stand up for herself a little bit more.”
The tricky thing about To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is that Lara Jean is the hero, but Peter came off as a hero too. For a sequel to work there needs to be drama and we’ll have to face the reality that LJ is our protagonist, and suitors can and will change.
At least we know that Bella and Edward were end game for Twilight, just like how Lara Jean and Peter will be end game. Because they have to be. (Please).
