‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Sequel At Disney To Reunite Meryl Streep And Emily Blunt

Disney is stirring excitement in the film industry with the announcement of a sequel to the 2006 hit The Devil Wears Prada. The new film, which is currently in early development, will see the return of Meryl Streep as the formidable Miranda Priestly and Emily Blunt as Emily Charlton. Per separate reports on Variety and Puck, this time, the narrative will focus on Miranda at the twilight of her career.

The sequel promises to delve into the transformative shifts within the fashion magazine industry, emphasising digital over print. Original screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna is in talks to return, bringing her seasoned storytelling skills back to the franchise. McKenna, known for her work on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Your Place or Mine, has recently enjoyed success with Cruella and is set to capture audiences once again with her sharp writing. However, there is no news of Anne Hathaway returning as of yet.

While Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt are confirmed to reprise their roles, the participation of Anne Hathaway, who played Andy Sachs, remains uncertain. The original film, based on Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel, depicted Hathaway and Blunt as assistants navigating the demanding world of a high-end fashion magazine led by Streep’s character. The film was not only a commercial success, grossing over US$325 million worldwide, but also a critical one, earning Streep a Golden Globe nomination and cementing the film’s cultural impact.

The Devil Wears Prada explored the intense and often cutthroat nature of the fashion industry, earning acclaim for its portrayal of the challenges faced by those within it. The film’s portrayal of the industry’s evolution will likely be a central theme in the sequel, reflecting the current digital age’s impact on traditional media outlets.

The legacy of The Devil Wears Prada continues to grow, not only through its upcoming sequel but also through adaptations like the musical starring Vanessa Williams as Miranda Priestly, set to premiere in London.

As Disney prepares for this highly anticipated sequel, fans of the original film are eager to see how the characters adapt to the new challenges of the digital era. The film is slated for a global release, promising another stylish and insightful look into the world of fashion through the lens of its most iconic characters.
