The dark fantasy is taking over the market of the movies quickly. Seeing the success of MCU, Universal is also willing to make its Cinematic Universe, including all the monsters. This scenario means that they will also be focusing on the dark fantasy Dracula Untold.
Here, we are going to talk about Dracula Untold 2. Before this, let us see what the first part was about?
Gary Shore is the director of the dark fantasy action film that got released on 10th October 2014 in the theatres.
Michael De Luca is the producer of the American film.
What Is the Plotline of the Movie Dracula Untold 2?
The story starts with a flashback telling about the previous life of Vlad. As a child, he was the prince of Wallachia and Transylvania. He received his training as a soldier in the Sultan’s Janissary corps as he was a princely hostage of the Ottoman Empire. He became a killing machine over there. He soon becomes sickened by his acts and leaves the place to rule his domain peacefully. The story then jumps to the present time, where Vlad and his soldiers find a helmet in a stream.
Fearing that Ottoman parties are preparing to attack them, they follow the stream and reach over a cave. After entering the cave, they find an unknown creature with red eyes attacking them. He had inhuman abilities. After hurting the creature from his sword, Vlad discovers that the creature was a vampire.
The next day, the Ottoman army takes part in a celebration at Vlad’s palace. They put the false charges of killing their soldiers on Vlad after an incident. He defended himself, but the ottoman didn’t believe him. Instead, they asked for thousands of boys from the region for training in the Ottoman army. After listening to rejection from him, Mehmed ordered the soldiers to bring Vlad’s son to the army. To protect his son, Vlad attacks the Ottoman army and gets sure about the war. To protect his family and his kingdom, he asks the vampire for help.
After drinking his blood, Vlad himself becomes a vampire and gets ready to fight the war.
Talking about the second part of the movie, it is most likely to be set in the modern era, according to the sources. It would pick up from the scene where the previous movie ended. We don’t have any information about the plot of the second part yet.
The Release Date: When Will the Second Part of the Movie Dracula Untold Be Released in the Theatres?
Seeing the success of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Universal is planning to launch a Cinematic Universe that will feature monsters. To make it to the end, the makers decided to rework the movie Dracula Untold. They want to connect the movie to the universe. Currently, The Mummy has replaced Dracula Untold as the first dark Universe film. The makers are focussing on The Mummy right now and have paused the project of Dracula Untold.
Dracula Untold 2 is lost in the ever-changing plans of the Universe. It doesn’t mean that it’s not going to happen. On the other hand, the original movie was not up to the mark and received moderate success. The ending hinted at a sequel, but that entirely depends on the makers now. Right now, it is unlikely to happen.
There is no official announcement made by the makers yet.
