When To All The Boys I've Loved Before first came out, we thought we were going to be subjected to another lame-ass teen love story. I mean, what more can you do with that age-old storyline? Literally nothing. But, surprisingly, it managed to defy all of our expectations.
Susan Johnson, the director of the rom-com adapted the book and told the story in a nice, refreshing way, with neither character being the typical stereotypes that we're used to. No bad boys. No nerdy girls. Just two normal high school students trying to find love. And since the news broke out that there's a second movie on the horizon... we're more excited than ever!
Keep reading to find out all the juicy details about To All the Boys I've Loved Before the sequel, P.S. I Still Love You.
How excited on a scale of 1-10 would you be if I told you that To All The Boys I've Loved Before was getting a sequel?When Netflix first hinted at the possibility of a second film, the internet erupted with excitement. The first film was iconic in so many ways and it's not just because Noah Centineo and Lana Condor had an immense amount of chemistry.
The couple gave us some of the most iconic relationship moments.Let's count down some of my favorite Lara Jean/Peter moments from To All The Boys I've Loved Before to really get you hyped up about the second film!
Let me set the scene for you...If you haven't already watched the first film, firstly, where have you been? Secondly, I'll just outline it briefly for you. It tells the story of Lara Jean Covey who, when she was younger, had written a bunch of letters to her crushes. Her sister manages to find them and send them out to the boys and leaves Lara Jean with the task of explaining herself. And one of the recipients is Peter Kavinsky... That's where it all begins...
5. The Love Letter (from the book!).We obviously have to start with the original love letter. The cutest thing ever. If I received a letter like this, I think I would have no choice but to fall in love with the sender.
Lara just couldn't help but admit how amazing Peter was..."You're so good at everything. Too good. You could have given other guys a chance to be good but you never did." Peter was everyone's crush at the time, as you could probably imagine.
4. The contract signing.Their relationship started off fake at the start, because both of them were hoping to impress other people. It didn't remain that way for too long though...
So the contract signing was a crucial moment.
via: YouTubeLara Jean wanted to make sure Peter understood the terms and conditions that came with the relationship. But being the chill kind of guy that he was, he totally ignored her rules. Typical. But still cute AF.
3. The gift of... yogurt.Every relationship comes to exist only after having "the conversation," in which both participants admit that they've caught feelings for each other.
And this also happens in this film... but in a unique way.It seems as if Lara Jean is completely oblivious to Peter's true feelings towards her, so he tells her in a way that she'll understand. With the use of a Korean yogurt drink. That's true love right there.
2. The back-pocket thing.Even if you haven't watched the film yet, you've probably heard of this viral trend, right? This is where the back-pocket thing came from. It's a cute thing where, instead of holding hands, one person puts their hand into the back pocket of the other person's jeans.
It's so much cuter than it sounds...And after the film was released, couples converted to this cuter method of showing affection.
1. The hot-tub scene.This moment was very memorable for its steamy setting, and not only because it was set in a hot-tub.
Conveniently, this was the location where the two realized that they could stop pretending...
via: YouTubeBecause they both genuinely liked each other, but didn't want to violate the terms of their contract. It's safe to say that the contract had completely been dismissed after this scene...
And guess what? Lara Jean and Peter are set to hit our screens again very soon!The adorable couple are ready to steal our hearts yet again when the sequel to the Netflix original premieres on... cue the drum roll... February 12th! Just in time for Valentine's Day!
