The First Purge will allow us to see the events of the first-ever Purge night in grisly fashion, and it sounds like it will feel different from previous incarnations. In fact, The First Purge producer Andrew Form recently opened up about the project while speaking to CinemaBlend and he explained that the prequel will tell a more personal story about an incredibly badass hero. Form elaborated:
"This Purge is about a neighborhood. It's a lot of similar things, but it is specific to this neighborhood and to me, and I can't believe I am going to say this and don't quote me on it, but it feels more personal than the other Purge movies. It really does. I've seen the movie once and it was a long cut so I don't want to lead you down a path if we end up changing it, but it just feels like a more personal story and the protagonist in this Purge is just a badass. He's just a cool guy and it's just a cool movie. It's a really cool movie. one thing about this movie is that it's incredible, it's that DeMonaco always seems to know what's going to happen politically and culturally and I think he's done that again with this one. I don't know how he does it."
The First Purge will tell a story on a smaller scale compared to the previous two films, while also larger than the single-location original. This seems logical, given the fact that the film reportedly takes place within the confines of Staten Island. Beyond that, however, we will also apparently see a "more personal" story play out as we follow a brand-new "badass" hero. Andrew Form wouldn't explain much more beyond that
