There is no third category, you either like live-action adaptations or think they are meh. However, it’s always interesting to look at the human forms of our favorite characters.
Most live-action adaptations fail when they try to incorporate more than one arc into the two-hour-long movie. But Kingdom didn’t screw up, the film was great and bagged a full 5/5 rating. Japan’s take on Chinese history was a badass experience for fans, and now, the franchise is getting into a part two.
The official website for Kingdom Live-Action movie announced that a sequel in on its way.
The movie will adapt the Keiyou Campaign Arc (Chapters 48-73) of the manga. It is unclear when the movie will be released but we are expecting it to be Summer 2021.
Shinsuke Sato will return as the director, Kengo Yamazaki will enact Shin, and Ryo Yoshizawa will enact Masamitsu. The original author, Yasuhisa Hara, is in charge of scripts. He also made an artwork in celebration of the announcement.

He also shared his thoughts as a comment on the website:
“A sequel to the live-action film Kingdom is in the works! Thanks to the fact that more people than we could have imagined watched the first film, it has led to the sequel.
Thank you so much! I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in the lengthy screenplay conference this time as well. Ouki said to Shin, “Let’s meet on the battlefield.” It’s going to be a solid portrayal of that world.
I believe that people will enjoy the battlefield and drama that will remain in the history of Japanese films on a larger scale than the previous film. The release is still some time away, but please, everyone, I hope you’re looking forward to it.”
