Sequels to your Netflix faves The Kissing Booth and The Princess Switch are on the way, as are a slew of new films featuring A-listers like Issa Rae, Saoirse Ronan, and Jennifer Lopez. All that’s left to do is call up your BFF and stock up on your favorite ice cream flavor.
To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before became an instant classic when it dropped on Netflix in 2018. Part two picks up where the first left off, with our beloved Lara Jean (Lana Condor) dating Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo). But she has another love interest to contend with—the equally charming John Ambrose McClaren (Jordan Fisher).
If you want to feel all the feels, head to your nearest movie theater to watch Insecure star Issa Rae connect with Lakeith Stanfield in this romantic drama that parallels the love story of Rae’s character’s mother (Chanté Adams), a photographer with secrets of her own.
Inside The Rain (March 12)
College filmmaker Aaron (Benjamin Glass) is bipolar and has ADHD and Borderline Personality Disorder, but that’s not going to stop him from following his dreams. When Emma (Ellen Toland), a sex worker he meets outside a strip club, offers to help with his project, the two form a deeper bond than either expected.
The Lovebirds (April 3)
Issa Rae hits the big screen once again, this time accompanied by Kumail Nanjiani. The two play a couple framed for murder who go on a wild journey to clear their names—all while trying to figure out their own relationship. This is Nanjiani’s second collaboration with director Michael Showalter, who also helmed 2017’s Oscar-nominated The Big Sick.
This historical period romance follows real-life fossil hunter Mary Anning (Kate Winslet) as she falls in love with a young woman (Saoirse Ronan) recuperating from illness in a seaside town in 1840s England.
Happiest Season (November 20)
Kristen Stewart stars in this romantic comedy directed by Veep star Clea DuVall. Stewart plays a woman ready to propose to her girlfriend during the holidays—until she finds out her longtime love has yet to come out to her conservative family.
Marry Me (2020)
Jennifer Lopez is on a roll. In 2019 we got to witness her dancing and acting prowess in Hustlers, and earlier this year she rocked the stage at the Superbowl Halftime show. But she’s not stopping there—the pop star will return to screens in 2020 as a famous musician (fitting) who finds out her fiancé is cheating on her moments before she walks down the aisle.
The Kissing Booth 2 (2020)
The wait is almost over for the highly-anticipated sequel to Netflix’s The Kissing Booth. Jacob Elordi and Joey King will reprise their roles as Noah and Elle, and rumor has it the movie’s storyline will closely follow the book series on which it’s based.
The Princess Switch: Switched Again (2020)
Another Netflix obsession getting its own sequel this year is 2018’s The Princess Switch, starring Vanessa Hudgens as a Chicago baker named Stacy and her doppelgänger, a royal duchess from the kingdom of Belgravia. The new movie adds a third look-alike to the mix, “party girl” Fiona.
Chemical Hearts (2020)
