Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – this is the official title of the sequel to writer-director Rian Johnson’s 2019 mystery film, previously known colloquially as Knives Out 2. But what does Glass Onion mean? Well, famously, “Glass Onion” is a 1968 Beatles song, which John Lennon saw as an answer to confound those who obsessively pored over the lyrics of Beatles songs. Lennon liked the sassiness of the words “glass onion” conveying both transparency and multiple layers. Could Johnson be hinting at something similar with his Knives Out 2 title? You’ll have to see the movie to find out.


Netflix has revealed the official title – Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – via an animated announcement video, which features a magnifying glass as it spins over the enlarged letters of “Glass Onion” before moving away. The Knives Out 2 title announcement video ends with the sequel’s cast list, featuring the return of Daniel Craig alongside Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline , Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista. Hudson and Bautista are listed under the moniker “with”, which suggests their roles are smaller than the others.

On Twitter, Johnson explain her thought behind the title“What I love about Agatha Christie is that she never walked on water creatively. I think there’s a misperception that her books use the same formula over and over again. yet, but fans know the opposite to be true.

“It wasn’t just set pieces or methods of murder, she was constantly expanding the genre conceptually. Under the thriller umbrella, she’s written spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial killer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character studies, glam travelogues.

“When I did Knives Out, that’s what got me excited about doing more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc – to emulate Christie and have each movie feel like a whole new book, with its own tone, its ambition, its raison d’être… and (your dah) title.

In addition to writing and directing Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, Johnson is also producing the Knives Out sequel alongside frequent collaborator Ram Bergman. Glass Onion is a production of Lionsgate (which released the first film in theaters worldwide) and Johnson and Bergman’s T-Street. Steve Yedlin – who has previously worked with Johnson on five films – is back as cinematographer on Glass Onion. Bob Ducsay – who edited Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Knives Out for Johnson – is also back for the Knives Out sequel.
