It's been talked about for what seems like forever and now it's looking like it's actually going to happen. Get ready for the follow-up to 'Twister.' Without a doubt, this is one of the most anticipated movie sequels to hit the silver screen. It was officially confirmed earlier this week that we're finally getting another Twister movie!


I stumbled across a news story from NBC Today that broke the news. You can click here to check out the article. I'm a little late to the party having just found out about all this, either way, I'm just excited to hear that a sequel is being made. This is something the fans have always wanted but never thought would happen.

Hit play on the video below to learn more about the upcoming sequel to 'Twister'

Having just been officially confirmed that a sequel is being made details are pretty thin right now. At this time we're unsure who all will be in the new movie and if we'll be seeing any of the old characters return, I'm hoping so. According to Today, the sequel is being done by Universal Pictures, Amblin Entertainment, and Warner Bros. No word yet on who will be producing and directing the new film. We do have a possible plot.

From what it's sounding like the sequel will be about the daughter of Dr. Joanne "Jo" Harding (Helen Hunt) who has become a storm chaser and weather expert, just like her mom. Now keep in mind that's not 100% confirmed but insiders are suggesting that's the direction the new movie could take, sounds good to me. Hopefully, we'll get to see some of the original cast return including Helen Hunt, how cool would that be?

Looking forward to the sequel, in the meantime watch the official trailer for 'Twister' below

Of course the BIG QUESTION everyone wants to know is "Are they going to film the sequel in Oklahoma?" I really don't see how you couldn't. The original Twister had filming locations in Guthrie, Stillwater, Wakita, Norman, and other places across the state. It makes sense that the sequel would also be shot in the Sooner State as well. I mean after all, when you say tornado or twister most people's first thought is Oklahoma.

Did you know there's a Twister Museum in Wakita, OK? They have all kinds of memorabilia and and artifacts from the movie including an actual Dorthy that was used in the movie! The museum also has several of the vehicles that were seen in the film. While you're in Wakita you can also visit some of the locations where the movie was shot, like the lot where Aunt Meg's house once stood. If you're a Twister fan you have to go.
