Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike is an American comedy-drama film that revolves around the titular male stripper Magic Mike. Fans have been waiting for Magic Mike 3 since the second season movie was released in 2015. If you’re also curious about Magic Mike 3, here’s what we know about it.
What could Magic Mike 3 be about?
We know that the premise of the Magic Mike film series is based on Channing Tatum’s experience as a male stripper during the early days of his career, before his big break in Hollywood. At this time, no synopsis or trailer for the third film in the franchise has been revealed. Therefore, it is difficult to determine what Magic Mike 3 will be about.
However, cast member Channing Tatum had a chat with THR where he talked about the plans for the film. Tatum said, “The third episode will be the show, and I think it should evolve beyond these guys. The first was about Mike, the second about the guys.” Meanwhile, the star also went on to say, “I think the third is really about a man and a woman having a conversation about sex and themselves and who we all are. That is the next step I want to take with the story.” Tatum’s comments lead us to believe that the third film will give the franchise a fresh start.
In another interview, Tatum gave a few spoilers about what viewers are looking forward to in Magic Mike’s third episode. Tatum stated that the film would be a full dance icle, though most of the story is still unknown. The third film will feature more dance sequences, as both the director and lead actor have made clear, so audiences need to know what to anticipate.
