Woo La La 2 is an upcoming American 3D computer-animated romantic fantasy comedy film produced by Gingo Animation and will be released by Universal Pictures. It is a sequel to the 2009 film Woo La La. The film is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2019 in 2D and 3D.
In May 2009, director Michael Wildshill commented on a possible sequel by saying, "Could be there a Woo La La 2... on the drawing board? We would love to do another Woo La La, but there are no concrete plans." During an interview in September 2010, Josh Hutcherson expressed interest to reprise his role as Amai Yamada in the sequel, saying "If there is a Woo La La 2, I'll be happy to talk to them about doing it. I do what they tell me on that series. Period. The end. Those people are very smart, and if they think that there is something there to do, [then there is]."
In February 2015, Gingo CEO and chairman Geo G. confirmed that they are working on a sequel to Woo La La, with Wildshill and Karey Kirkpatrick writing the screenplay, though Wildshill is unsure if he will direct the sequel or not. According to a report by Variety published in March 2015, Debra Messing was in negotiations to reprise her role of Kireina Miyazaki. In September 2015, it was confirmed by the press that Josh Hutcherson would reprise the role of Amai in the sequel. On November 9, 2015, it was confirmed that Hutcherson and Messing would be reprising their roles as Amai and Kireina, respectively. On June 23, 2016, it was reported that Erica Rivinoja has been hired to do the rewrites of the script.
In June 2017, Universal announced that the sequel would be released on May 31, 2019, with Steve Samono, the director of How Frogs Go to London, Hatty and 3 Simple Doods, announced as the director of the sequel. It was also announced that Jess Riol will be returning to produce it. On August 15, 2017, it was announced that the film's release date has been delayed to July 3, 2019, taking the place of the release date previously held by The Secret Life of Pets 2.
The film is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2019, by Universal Pictures.
