Netflix’s ‘The Platform’ uses its unique premise to paint the brutal picture of today’s world. It tells the story of the people who live in a place called The Hole where with each descending level the way of life degrades considerably. The people below live on the mercy of the people above, until one man decides to break the system. The film ends on a point where the audience is left with a lot of questions about the plot. Will we get any answers? Will there be ‘The Platform 2’? Let’s find out.
The Platform 2 Release Date
‘The Platform’ released on Netflix on March 20, 2020. The film opened to great reviews from critics and also enjoyed the love of the audience, who gravitated towards it due to its timely themes of a confined situation with sharp commentary on capitalism. The ending of the film leaves a strong impact on the audience and considering that it was conceived that way, the filmmakers might want to leave it at that. It would also be a fitting end for the story, leaving the questions swirling in the mind of the audience, who would have to look for the answers in themselves, as was intended by the film. Still, it leaves the door open for a sequel.
Netflix green lights the sequel for a film based on its popularity, and ‘The Platform’ certainly enjoyed that. Though no official announcement has been made as of yet, the streaming service could make a sequel, should the filmmakers choose to take the story forward. Considering all the factors, we expect ‘The Platform 2’ to release sometime in 2023 or later.
The Platform 2 Cast: Who’s in it?
‘The Platform’ stars Ivan Massague in the role of Goreng, a man who volunteers to spend six months in The Hole. Zorion Eguileor plays the role of Trimagasi, Goreng’s cellmate. Antonia San Juan plays the role of Imoguiri, a former employee who becomes a prisoner at The Hole. Emilio Buale Coka appears as Baharat, while Alexandra Masangkay plays the role of Miharu. Zahara Llana appears as the girl who lives on Level 333.
By the end of the film, almost everyone dies, due to one reason or another, except Goreng and the little girl. While this gives more footing to the return of Llana in the sequel, Massague’s character might not be part of the story anymore. With the expanding world of ‘The Platform’, we expect new actors to join the cast of the sequel.
The Platform 2 Plot: What can it be about?
‘The Platform’ ends with the little girl being sent to Level 0 as the message to the authorities. Goreng, on the other hand, decides to walk away. But where is “away”? Where does he end up? Is there a door on that level that he can just walk out of? Or does walking into the darkness simply mean that he is dead?
While his fate remains in the dark, we are more interested in finding out what happens to the little girl? Imoguiri had told Goreng that no children are allowed in The Hole. Then, where did the girl come from? More importantly, what happens to her when she is discovered at Level 0? Will the authority take responsibility for the child, or will they simply send her back to Level 333 so that no one gets to know about her.
