Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) and Kira (Arden Cho) are the big absentees from “Teen Wolf: the movie”, which is however closely linked to season 3B. Jeff Davis tells us how he managed to write this new chapter of “Teen Wolf” without them.
This will not have escaped any fan of Teen Wolf: several emblematic characters of the series are absent from the feature film released a few days ago in France on Paramount +.
Among them, Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), obviously, character adored by the public present in the six seasons of Teen Wolf, is a big absentee (even if Tyler Posey does not seem to agree). But we also think of Kira (Arden Cho), Scott’s girlfriend in seasons 3 to 5, whose family heritage would have completely made sense in the film.
Indeed, Teen Wolf: The Movie, written by Jeff Davis, sees Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and his pack return to Beacon Hills years after the events of the season 6 finale in order to unravel the mystery of Allison’s reappearance. (Crystal Reed) and once again face the greatest enemy they have ever known: the Nogitsune.
A fearsome demonic spirit that had notably taken possession of Stiles’ body in season 3B. Giving rise to “Void Stiles” and some of the best sequences of the cult series.
If Stiles and Kira are absent from the movie Teen Wolf, it’s because Dylan O’Brien, busy with other projects, felt that the conclusion offered to his character at the end of the series did not require a sequel.
While Arden Cho refused to take part in the feature film for financial reasons. The actress, seen recently in Career plan on Netflix, having revealed last year during an interview that the production had only offered him half the salary offered to his female partners.
Jeff Davis explains how he handled Stiles and Kira’s absence
Jeff Davis having chosen to link the film to the plot of season 3B, the creator and showrunner of Teen Wolf therefore had to imagine this new chapter of Teen Wolf without Stiles and Kira, who were however closely linked to the plot. of this flagship season. And, according to him, it was obviously not an easy task.
“It was complicated, it was a challenge”told us the thinking head of Teen Wolf in an interview. “Stiles and Kira were two big figures in Season 3B, so we had to find a way to rewrite the story we had imagined for the movie without them.”.
Jeff Davis therefore reveals to have reworked the script for the feature film which, in a first version, probably included the characters of Stiles and Kira. And, more than ever, Teen Wolf: The Movie then became a story centered on Scott McCall who, after all, is and has always been the hero of the series.
“For me, when it comes to Teen Wolf, I always start from the same element: Scott. He’s our main character, Teen Wolf, he’s him. Once you have that in mind, all the other characters in the series become characters that evolve in his web, so we started from Scott, as always”.
And so it was that Teen Wolf: The Movie, which finds a way to explain Stiles’ absence from Beacon Hills and Lydia’s (Holland Roden) life, took on the form of a new chapter in the adventures of Scott, who gives pride of place to the reunion between the werewolf and his lifelong love, Allison.
The Teen Wolf movie is available in VOST on the Paramount+ platform.
