We got a fresh teaser for The Get Down, Part II and now we have been by blessed with a full trailer by Netflix! The show was once heavily rumored to have been cancelled due to poor ratings and expensive costs to bring the show to life. Baz Luhrmann the show’s executive producer shot down all of those rumors including one floating around about the suicide of Jaden Smith’s character Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling.
THE GET DOWN
Part II of The Get Down picks up in 1978, one year after the events of part one. The trailer focuses on primarily the Books (Justice Smith) and Mylene (Herizen F. Guardiola) dynamic. The couple’s relationship is tested as Books struggles to balance his commitment to The Get Down Brothers and his corporate internship while Mylene is on her way to becoming a disco superstar.
