Check out the Orc Open Casting Call for Bright 2

January 4, 2018
This is too cute.

Bad reviews be damned, Netflix is pushing ahead with a sequel to Brightwhich we rather liked in any case. The marketing machine is already getting up to speed, which is impressive in and of itself, and also they’re definitely walking back the notion of orcs being exclusively coded as black, a fair criticism leveled at the film. Here, we get a concrete effort to steer away from gang and ghetto stereotypes – these orcs are definitely dorky white boys. Hey, they even name-check Alien Nation and Shadowrun! 

No release date has been set as of yet, but we’d imagine Netflix is keen to move sooner rather than later. In the meantime, orcs are making headway in the world of sports…
