Teen Wolf: The Movie trailer is out, and fans have a lot to say about it (duh).
The Teen Wolf television series was a popular show that ran for several seasons and featured a diverse cast of characters.
One of the most well-received points of the show was its focus on the werewolf main character and his struggles to balance his supernatural abilities with his everyday life.
The new trailer, presented at Brazil Comic-Con, once again highlighted the upcoming Nogitsune and Allison comeback.
The decision to base a movie on Nogitsune arc, that has been cited by fans as the best part of the series, has been met with some criticism from fans who feel that it is a cheap way to try and generate interest in the film. Some have pointed out that the movie will not have the same feel or character dynamics as the original series without key characters like Stiles and Kira.
The absence of the Dylan O'Brien's character Stiles, who was a fan favorite in the Teen Wolf television series, has been noted as a potential weakness of the upcoming Teen Wolf: The Movie. Stiles played a key role in many of the show's arcs, including Nogitsune arc, and his absence may leave a noticeable void in the movie, with some fans saying that there's no chance repeating that arc as successfully without him. Understandably, the decision to make the Nogitsune the main villain again has also been met with some skepticism. These factors may negatively impact the overall reception of the movie.
On the other hand, the frequent mention of Dylan O'Brien's absence in discussions about the upcoming Teen Wolf movie has been met with some annoyance from fans. Stiles was a popular character in the original television series, but the actor who portrayed him has confirmed that he will not be appearing in the movie. This has led some fans to express their frustration at the continued fandom focus on Stiles, despite the fact that the movie is supposed to be centered on the main character Scott and his journey with his friends.
Despite this, many fans have expressed excitement for the movie, with some praising the trailer as a promising indication of the film's quality. It remains to be seen whether the movie will be able to capture the same magic as the original series, and whether it will be able to satisfy fans who are disappointed by the absence of Stiles.
Teen Wolf: The Movie premieres on Paramount+ January 26, 2023.
