2018's Halloween served as a direct sequel to the 1978 original, allowing it to ignore the events of all other sequels for a much more intimate story. In this new canon, Myers had been locked away for 40 years following the carnage he caused on Halloween night all those years ago, with Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) confronting the killer once again after the psychological trauma he caused her. Much like the 1981 Halloween II, the upcoming Halloween Kills takes place immediately after the events of its predecessor.
In addition to the reveal of Kills exploring new elements of the mythology, Green also teased what fans could expect from the third part of his Halloween trilogy, Halloween Ends.
“It’s a very different movie than Kills, and both Halloweens," the filmmaker admitted. "The script feels very fun. For me, it was essential to say, ‘Here’s a conclusive episode to my trilogy.’ I’m trying to bring closure to my ‘Laurie Strode versus Michael Myers’ storytelling.”
These comments echo remarks Green made earlier this month about the ways in which Myers' chaos impacts the community.
"This first [sequel] was more about Laurie’s life of isolation after Michael and her attempts at revenge. It was personal,” Green shared with Empire. “This is more about the unraveling of a community into chaos. It’s about how fear spreads virally.”
Sadly, while the new film was originally slated to debut this October, the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in both upcoming films to be delayed.
