Directed by Michael Fimognari, the film is an adaptation of Jenny Han’s book Always and Forever, Lara Jean. In this final movie, fans will follow Lare Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky, played by Lana Condor and Noah Centineo, as they navigate their last year of high school and come to terms with entering adulthood.
In the trailer, we catch glimpses of Lara Jean and Peter enjoying their senior year: having cute dates, going to prom, and taking a class trip to New York City. It seems that this trip has an impact on Lara Jean, prompting her to question her plans for the future, and a life potentially without Peter.
Lots of familiar faces also make an appearance, such as Lara Jean’s best friend Chris, played by Madeleine Arthur, and her ex-best friend-turned-rival, Gen, played by Emilija Baranac. Another return some fans may have noticed is Sarayu Blue as Trina Rothschild. But here’s what we’re most excited to see when the film is released!
- Covey Sister Bonding in Korea!
A signature characteristic of the trilogy is its incorporation of Korean culture. Fans are excited to see Lara Jean and her sisters, Kitty and Margot, played by Anna Cathcart and Janel Parrish, visit Korea and connect with their roots, and most importantly, bond as sisters.
- The Growth of Gen!
In the previous two films, Lara Jean and Gen have an interesting and complicated dynamic that Lara Jean describes using the Korean word jung. Jung means even when love turns to hate, you have a tenderness in your heart for them. In the trailer, eagle-eyed fans will spot Lara Jean and Gen dancing at prom together and hanging out in NYC, hinting at more growth.
- Lara Jean and Peter!
While Lara Jean’s family and friends are important, her relationship with Peter Kavinsky lies at the crux of this trilogy. Peter has charmed Lara Jean and fans are excited to see his signature charm return as he takes Lara Jean out for a series of Instagram worthy dates, and expresses excitement at the prospect of both of them going to Stanford. But what happens if Lara Jean doesn’t get into Stanford?
We’ll just have to wait and see on February 12th!
