In hindsight, it’s somewhat of a miracle that “The Kissing Booth 3” got made in the first place.
She was just 17 when she started working on Netflix movies. Elle, her high school character at the time, grew with her.
“I went through many important life moments in her shoes.”
Not because the 2018 “The Kissing Booth” was initially a stand-alone film — before the summery rom-com, about a high schooler who falls for her best friend’s brother, became an unexpected hit on Netflix. And not because of the pandemic; this final chapter was shot earlier, in 2019, at the same time as “The Kissing Booth 2.”
With workdays that included wrestling in massive inflatable sumo suits, shooting a montage at a water park and racing go-karts in Mario Kart-like costumes, it’s remarkable that Joey King and her colleagues, who had a ball in the process, we’re able to focus enough to get the job done.
King, the franchise’s 22-year-old star, stated in a video conference that “if you put us into a room and expect us to get a lot done that’s productive, then it’s going be difficult.” We’re 12-year-old boys.
The final film in the trilogy, which will be streaming Wednesday, follows Elle King, King’s character, through her last summer of high school. She is currently dating Noah (Jacob Elordi) while also keeping up with her childhood bucket list.
