This week, Alexis Bledel went on The Tonight Show and stated the phrases we have all been longing to listen to: There may be a third Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie.
Warner Brothers Pictures
Hearing this information made me OVERJOYED, in fact. I will actually watch any story about these characters. Please take all of my cash.
But it additionally jogged my memory of one thing darkish that I’ve been making an attempt to erase from my mind since 2011.
If you wish to keep away from a Sisterhood e-book spoiler, now could be your LAST CHANCE to show again. Continue on about your day reveling within the pleasure of Alexis Bledel’s thrilling replace!
I promise, you will really feel happier.
Okay, so just a little again information on the books: The unique sequence had 4 books, launched from 2001-2007.
The first Sisterhood movie relies on the primary e-book, whereas The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2 relies (for some purpose) on the fourth e-book.
Then, in 2011, creator Ann Brashares wrote an grownup novel referred to as Sisterhood Everlasting, which is one other sequel to the sequence that picks up with Bridget, Lena, Tibby, and Carmen at age 29.
In that e-book, Tibby loses contact with the remainder of her pals, and he or she provides start to a daughter named Bailey (!!!!!) along with her highschool love Brian. (I’m tearing up already.)
She decides to get the gang again collectively once more for one more journey to Greece, and sends all of them aircraft tickets. Happy, enjoyable, pants time, proper???
No! Wrong! Because Tibby dies. I stated it, Tibby dies in Sisterhood Everlasting and it is so rattling heartbreaking.
She was recognized with Huntington’s illness and knew she was going to die. But Lena, Bridget, and Carmen arrive in Greece and uncover that Tibby had unintentionally drowned.
Tibby leaves notes for all of her pals, prompting them to make all the proper decisions of their private lives as a result of life’s too quick, and many others.
Honestly, on the time it simply made me so freaking unhappy and I’m getting labored up fascinated by it once more. But, there you have got it, Tibby dies in official Sisterhood canon.
If you are a book-lover like me, you have identified this for years as nicely and YOU CAN FEEL MY PAIN. But in the event you have been blissfully unaware (like my co-workers have been this morning) I’m so sorry.
Anyway, this run-on rant all circles again to information of a brand new Sisterhood film. Would they observe this devastating plot level? Or pull a Bridget Jones and simply pretend like horrible things by no means occurred?
For all we all know, they could have a wholly totally different story deliberate for these characters! (Pretty please.)
I will clearly watch both means, however I am NOT READY for the emotional ruination in the event that they observe the books. THE END.
