Should Disney+ Invest In A Real Steel Sequel?

If you can remember back 10 years ago, 20th Century Studios (then Fox) released Real Steel- a robotic boxing film.  Since then fans of the film have been wanting to see more and now they might get what they want.

Real Steel followed Charlie Kenton (Jackman), who used to be a prizefighter but lost his chance to win a title when heavy, towering robots took over the boxing ring. Now working as a small-time promoter, Charlie pieces together scrap metal into low-end fighters, barely earning enough to make it from one underground venue to the next. After hitting rock bottom, Charlie reluctantly teams with his estranged son, Max, to build and train a championship robot for a last shot at redemption.

Disney now owns the rights to the film and after seeing how director Shawn Levy’s Free Guy did so well he might get a chance to follow-up on his previous project Real Steel.

“Hugh and I talk about what a sequel would look like. I wouldn’t say no to a (Disney+) series or a film sequel, That character was so enjoyable to create.” Levy said in an interview regarding the possibilities.

Will have to wait to see if Disney moves forward with a sequel or if they pass it up.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
