After receiving a lot of positive feedback and admiration, Ted renewed for a sequel in 2015. Many fans have been expecting for another comeback from the outrageously hilarious talking bear that impressed several fans and critics alike across the globe.
Ted’s audiences have been waiting for five years since the release of its second installment in 2015. And since then, talking bear Ted has always been the talk of the town. However, without any confirmation made by McFarlane, Ted 3 is yet to be considered in the planning stage.
If you want to know more about how the story goes and how it might end up in the most speculated release of the third film, then keep on reading as we provide everything we know about it below.
Ted 3 is supposed to continue the story from its second movie. Knowing what to expect in the future film, it is advisable to familiarize yourself with how the story unfolds.
The film revolves around a young dreamer named John Bennett who wished that his mid-sized teddy bear he calls Ted would come to life and become his best friend.
Surprisingly with the help of the creator, it was made possible. Ted the talking bear had a life. The two were best buds going through their lives.
Ted married Lori, and Ted dated his co-worker Tami-Lynn. The sequel took a time skip with John and Lori’s divorce along with Ted and Tami-Lynn’s marriage. The couple would want a child however legal custody questions Ted’s capabilities of having a family.
Henceforth, the second film is mainly focused on Ted’s fight to have a bigger family by attempting to adopt a baby which both he and Tami had successfully processed through. The couple named their adoptive baby boy Apollo Creed.
Since there is still no hint dropped anywhere by the creators of Ted, the third film would rather leave us to expect the unlimited possibilities of how the life of each character would develop.
It could either be about Ted’s journey to fatherhood, given that MacFarlane is related to how the success of comedy fatherhood in Family Guy and American Dad! or with John’s love interest to finally kick it off with Samantha, his new lover.
For both Ted films, it would be disappointing to see a change in the main characters. Therefore, the creators will most likely reprise the main casts like Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett and Seth McFarlane who voices the infamous talking bear, Ted.
Other notable casts of the movie include Mila Kunis as Lori and Joel McHale as Rex in its first release of Ted and the sequel features Amanda Seyfried as Samantha and Morgan Freeman as Patrick.
What makes the Ted series different than any other comedy fantasy movie is their character-driven story with both Ted and John making it what it truly is. If John continues his relationship with Samantha in Ted 3 then we can also expect Seyfried to retain her character.
However, the upcoming film could also welcome additional new casts and characters as the story continues to unfold.
Ted franchise is made possible due to the efforts of Seth MacFarlane from co-writing the scrips, directing to producing the film. MacFarlane co-wrote the two films alongside with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.
