Will There be an ‘Orphan 3’ Movie After “Orphan: First Kill”? – American director William Brent Bell’s 2022 psychological horror film “Orphan: First Kill“ is based on a narrative by executive producers David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Alex Mace with a screenplay by David Coggeshall (who wrote the screenplay and story for its predecessor, respectively). Isabelle Fuhrman reprises her role from the 2009 movie Orphan in this prequel, which was funded by eOne, Dark Castle Entertainment, Sierra/Affinity, and Eagle Vision. Julia Stiles and Rossif Sutherland also appear.
The project, which had the working name Esther initially, was introduced in February 2020. In November of the same year, the title was officially announced. Fuhrman, along with Stiles, Sutherland, and Matthew Finlan, reprised her role as Esther in the film. From November to December 2020, Winnipeg served as the location for filming.
Orphan: First Kill had its world premiere on July 27, 2022, in the Philippines, before being distributed by Paramount Players in select theatres, on digital platforms, and via Paramount+ on August 19, 2022, in the United States. Critics gave the movie mixed reviews, praising the twists, realistic effects, and Fuhrman’s acting while criticizing the plot and contradictions.

When Will Orphan 3 be Released?
“Orphan: First Kill” was released on August 19, 2022, by “Paramount Players”. William Brent Bell is the director of this film. The movie was made available in theatres, on video-on-demand providers, and on Paramount+ all at once. However, it had its Philippine premiere on July 27, 2022, some three weeks earlier. Approximately thirteen years after the debut of the first part, the prequel was made available.
We have some encouraging news for the fans regarding the franchise’s third instalment. Director William Brent Bell expressed interest in telling Esther’s story further in an interview. He said he thought Esther’s narrative might be developed in fascinating ways. The director also mentioned that a third movie might wrap up Esther’s/Leena’s story and have a grimmer tone than the prequel.
The primary character in the first two movies, played by actress Isabelle Fuhrman, has also expressed interest in returning for a third outing. The actress also disclosed that talks between the production team and the studio to create a third movie are still going on. So, a third film may be approved if “Orphan: First Kill” does well with moviegoers and at the box office. At the earliest, “Orphan 3” could come out in the third or last quarter of 2024 if the sequel is revealed in the upcoming months.
Who Can Star Cast in Orphan 3?
Isabelle Fuhrman (‘The Hunger Games’) reprises her role as Esther/Leena Klammer from the first movie in “Orphan: First Kill.” Julia Stiles play Tricia Albright, Rossif Sutherland plays Allen Albright, and Matthew Finlan portrays Gunnar Albright. In the meantime, Samantha Walkes (Dr. Sager) and Hiro Kanagawa (Inspector Donnan) play supporting roles.
Fuhrman is likely to reprise her part in a future “Orphan 3” because she has previously expressed interest in doing so. However, given that Stiles, Sutherland, and Finlan’s characters die in the prequel’s closing seconds, it is improbable that they will make an appearance. Even so, Walkes might return to play Esther’s therapist in the follow-up. There will probably be a few new cast members in the third movie.
What Can ‘Orphan 3’ Plot Synopsis Could Be?
In the prequel “Orphan: First Kill,” Leena Klammer, a thirty-something woman with a form of dwarfism who poses as a small girl, reveals her origin story. By assuming the persona of Esther, the long-lost daughter of Tricia and Allen Albright, she makes her way to the United States.
However, as Esther discovers a terrible family secret, things dramatically turn. In the end, an arsonist kills Esther’s adoptive family. The conclusion sets up Esther’s adoption by the Colemans, which triggers the events of “Orphan.”
The events of a potential “Orphan 3” will probably occur after those in the first movie. What happens to Esther following her encounters with the Colemans will probably be revealed. Since the Colemans are still living, they might be able to shed light on Esther’s condition. Esther may change her identity in the meantime and go on her terror campaign. Furthermore, flashbacks can depict Esther’s time at the Saarne Institute.
