According to Deadline, a sequel to the acclaimed adaptation “Extraordinary,” titled “White Bird: A Wonder Story,” is in development.
The new film will be based on the graphic novel of the same name by RJ Palacio.
The production, set in the same universe as “Extraordinaire”, will follow a young Jewish girl hidden by a boy and her mother in Nazi-occupied France during WWII.
The tale will be told by a grandmother to her grandson, Julian, a character we already know from the original film. The story of his grandmother’s childhood – his life before the war, how everything changed when the Nazis occupied France – will bring about a transformation in Julian. It is your evolution, with the help of your grandmother’s story, that will show the power of kindness to change hearts, bond and even save lives.
James Myers will oversee the project, which is being developed by Lionsgate.
Writer RJ Palacio will be the producer of the new film alongside David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, producers of the original feature film.
Released in 2017, ‘Extraordinary’ went on to become a review and blockbuster, grossing over $ 305 million worldwide and garnering 86% approval ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.
