Warning: this article contains spoilers!
What is Thirteen Lives about?
Thirteen Lives tells the story of the international rescue attempt that took place when a junior football team and their coach became trapped in the caves of Tham Luang after heavy unseasonal rain caused massive flooding.
The film largely focuses on two British cave divers, Richard Stanton and John Volanthen, who were called in to help with the rescue due to their cave diving skills. But while much of the running time is focused on their rescue efforts, the film also highlights the other people who helped with the mission, including the Royal Thai Navy SEALs who took part in the dive, and the many volunteers who helped pump water from the caves.
The rescue mission was successful as Richard, John and the other members of their team managed to pull the football team out of the caves alive. It was a mission full of pitfalls, not least because of the rising waters, so the men who risked their lives to save the boys and their coach deserve to be hailed as heroes.

Will there be a Thirteen Lives 2?
At the time of writing, there is no confirmation of a Thirteen Lives 2.
It’s no surprise since the first movie didn’t end on a cliffhanger. The boys and their coach were saved at the end of the film, so a sequel would be highly unlikely.
If there were to be a sequel, the focus might be on the cave divers from the first movie. It could focus on their life after the 2018 rescue mission, perhaps with a look at how their life was affected by the cave rescue. The sequel could also focus on the football team and their families and how their lives progressed after being rescued.
This is speculation as we truly believe a sequel is unlikely. But if you want to learn more about the cave rescue, a new documentary about the mission will hit Netflix in September. You can read more about it here.
Who could be in Thirteen Lives 2?
If a sequel is given the green light, Colin Farrell and Viggo Mortensen could return as the brave cave divers from the first movie. The cast could also include Joel Edgerton, Tom Bateman and the other actors who portrayed the crew members who saved the football team from drowning.
This assumes the film follows their life after the rescue mission, but if it focuses on the thirteen lives that were saved, we might see the return of the young cast members who portrayed the various team members. ball blocked.
When could Thirteen Lives 2 be released?
