All of our dreams have just come true!

Why, you ask?

Because everyone's favourite film, The Greatest Showman, is getting a sequel.

That's right.

The Greatest Showman 2 is OFFICIALLY in the works!

Since its release in December 2018, the smash-hit musical has made an impressive $435 million at the box office, becoming the third highest-grossing musical in history.

So naturally, the global success of the film - which follows the life of circus magnate P. T. Barnum - means a second instalment is a no brainer.

Director Michael Gracey revealed the exciting news to The Sun saying: "When a movie becomes as big a success as this, it’s only natural there is demand for a sequel."

"So those discussions have started and we are working on one right now."

At this point in time, we don't any details on the new film or if it will even follow on from the first film, but Gracey did confirm Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as P.T Barnum.

We're crossing our fingers Michelle Williams, Keala Settle, Zac Efron and Zendaya will also be back for round two!
