Escape Room which first got released in 2019, has now turned into a franchise with a solid fanbase. With the second installment around the corner, fans have already started demanding the third film. But is Escape Room 3 possible?
The storyline of the franchise is unique. Exploring the genre of psychological horror, the movies revolve around the main characters Zooey and Ben, who manage to escape the evil actions of Minos, the film’s villain.
No matter how hard they try to run away from these escape room games, they still somehow find themselves entangled in the endless loop of these twisted events. The intriguing and suspenseful storyline will keep you on the edge of your seats.
Now let’s find out about Escape Room’s third installment’s release date, cast, possible storylines, and other details.
Escape Room 3 Release Date
Up till now, there are only two released films in the franchise. The season 2 premiered on 16th July 2021. Considering that it just got released, directors will take their fair share of time announcing the renewal news of Escape Room 3.
But with renewal news, they won’t give a specific release date either. Because at times the production does not go as per plans and there are a few delays. So if they give fans a release date right now, it can be misleading.
The third installment isn’t confirmed yet, but as the film ended on a cliffhanger, we expect it to continue the story in the sequel. In an interview, Director Adam Robitel passed some positive comments regarding the threequel.
This might be his way of telling fans that the sequel is only possible if the 2nd installment does well at the box office. If the film reaches its desired rating, then Escape Room 3 is possible.
And if everything works, then expect the movie to come out in 2023 or even later than that.
Will the Same Cast Return for Escape Room 3?
Taylor Russell (Zoey) and Logan Miller (Ben) will most likely come back in a third potential movie. We will get to know more about the cast once the producers officially greenlit the film.
In Escape Room: Tournament of Champions, it is shown that the 4 members who joined the duo of Ben and Zoey die in the traps. They include Theo, Nathan, Brianna, and Rachel, so it is better not to expect them to come back in the third film.
However, Amanda (Deborah Ann Woll) got killed in the first movie, but somehow she became alive in the sequel. So this implies that the deaths in the films don’t necessarily happen; there is always something kept as a secret from the audience.
We hope that the Amanda situation gets repeated in the threequel to see the original cast reprising their roles once again.
As the film hasn’t been renewed yet, we can’t say anything about new cast members joining the team.
Is the 3rd Installment of Escape Room Possible?
Yes, considering the events of the second installment, the third movie is quite possible. The story can continue only if the writers are willing to write about it.
The threequel’s existence depends heavily on how well Escape Room 2 performs. If the movie is a hit, they can easily cover the production budget for the third film.
What Will be the Main Plot?
The third film will most likely explain the cliffhanger of Escape Room: Tournament of Champions. If you haven’t watched the second film yet, you need to know that the following paragraph contains spoilers.
It appeared as Zoey and Ben had finally defeated Minos and his evil plans, but the finale revealed that they once again got tricked by the villain. Minos manipulated them into acting the way that they did.
Following this story, Escape Room 3 will get even more complex. The disguised escape room sets for the threequel will be far more developed. The film will eventually show how Zoey, Ben, and other team members win against Minos and finally get away from the endless vicious cycle of the games.
Worst case scenario, Minos might win against the duo. Because he is mighty and the main characters have tried endless times, but the villain remains undefeated. You’ll get to know more about the main storyline once Sony Pictures starts dropping teasers or trailers for the movie.
Is There Any Trailer?
As the film isn’t confirmed yet, we don’t have any trailer for the film either.
That was pretty much everything that you needed to know about the third installment. Got more questions? Let us know!
