Michelle Yeoh says that there’s no need for a sequel to Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Everything Everywhere All At Once, sequel, Michelle Yeoh

As movie fans, we know that not every movie needs a sequel. There’s something to be said for a self-contained story that’s not setting up a franchise, but Hollywood looks at those box-office bucks and smells a sequel almost every time. Everything Everywhere All At Once captured the imagination of audiences across the globe and went on to gross over $140 million worldwide, which made it A24’s highest-grossing movie. There have been rumblings of a sequel to Everything Everywhere All At Once, but Michelle Yeoh said it doesn’t need one.

There’s no sequel,” Michelle Yeoh told Variety. “You know, it’s one of those movies where it’s — we would just be doing the same thing. We already fought the biggest enemy, which is sometimes ourselves, within ourselves. And we brought out the message of how we’re going to do it, and reminded every one of you is a superhero, because we all inherently have the superpower of love, compassion, and kindness. We don’t need a cape to be a superhero. We can do it every day, anytime we choose to. So, no [sequel].

Michelle Yeoh starred in Everything Everywhere All At Once as Evelyn Quan Wang, a Chinese-American immigrant who must connect with parallel universe versions of herself in order to prevent a powerful being from destroying the multiverse, all while being audited by the IRS.

In addition to its box-office success, Everything Everywhere All At Once swept awards season. The movie took home seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh), Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan), Best Supporting Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis), Best Original Screenplay, and Best Film Editing.

Michelle Yeoh has plenty of projects on her slate, including returning to the Star Trek franchise for the Section 31 movie. “I’m beyond thrilled to return to my Star Trek family and to the role I’ve loved for so long,” Yeoh said. “Section 31 has been near and dear to my heart since I began the journey of playing Philippa all the way back when this new golden age of Star Trek launched. To see her finally get her moment is a dream come true in a year that’s shown me the incredible power of never giving up on your dreams. We can’t wait to share what’s in store for you, and until then: live long and prosper (unless Emperor Georgiou decrees otherwise)!
