The upcoming film’s predecessor was a massive hit at the box office and amassed a total of $402 million. It went on to secure numerous accolades. So, a sequel was inevitable. The first part debuted simultaneously on Max and in theatres. 

The sequel will take a different path, as it won’t be available for streaming on any platform. This is because Denis Villeneuve was against releasing the movie on Max. But this does not imply that the film will never reach the platform. You’ll have to wait for a while longer.
