What woman doesn’t dream of falling for a paraplegic millionaire with six months to live? This week on Beyond The Box Set, we’re pitching sequels to ‘Me Before You’, the controversial 2016 hit based on the novel by JoJo Moyes, which we found to have some very strange messages about disability and assisted suicide.

Join us as we discuss how easily this movie could be re-edited to turn romantic lead Sam Claflin into the villain, why Emilia Clarke’s eyebrows deserve supporting cast credit and whether this is actually the whitest movie we’ve covered on our podcast so far…

As ever, the second half of our show involves us exploring our own fantasy sequel ideas for the movie, which this week include a second chance for Matthew ‘Neville Longbottom’ Lewis to win Louisa back and a Disney musical retelling inspired by our revelation that this film is basically Beauty & The Beast with fewer sympathetic characters.

Every week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to come up with the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. You can find us on all major Podcasting platforms and most social media channels.
