Crazy Rich Asians was a film released in 2018 that was highly celebrated by both film critics and general audiences. Due to its success from a critical and financial perspective, a sequel to this movie being given the green-light was never in doubt. Harry Shum Jr. was one of the stars of Crazy Rich Asians and, in an interview with Collider, he had the opportunity to speak about the Crazy Rich Asians 2.

Here is what Harry Shum Jr. had to say on what he personally knows about Crazy Rich Asians 2:

Yeah, we’ve had small conversations on the idea of it. We had conversations, even before I did the movie. That character was designed to be a cameo, in the first film, because he didn’t want to muddy the waters with so much to explore.”

It was important to see Rachel and Nick’s story, and let that be the center of it. It was a gamble. He said, ‘Look, there’s a cameo. I can’t promise anything. If it does well, the idea is that we’ll explore that.’ So, from me being friends with him for a long time, I was like, ‘Yeah, of course.’ It’s such an incredible thing that the movie has done so well and has made a cultural stamp, even with just romantic comedy status.”

It’s a really meaningful film, and I know that they are looking to tell that story, as well, but there’s still some time before that happens. I know the character in the books, and that’s what excited me. The stuff that happens in the books can hopefully be carried over or adapted, so we’ll see.”
