I think in the past two movies, her choices have been really about relationships and not really about her future, not really about where she’s going as a young woman. I really appreciate that at the end of the film, it feels very satisfying for me to see her make a choice on her own and step out into the world on her own. And she follows her heart in a new way. It’s not just following a love for a person, but it’s following a love for a city and a new life.”
Han known as Lara Jean’s resolution to maneuver throughout the nation as a substitute of staying placed on the West Coast to be nearer to Peter “a big moment” for her to “stand on her own two feet.”

It’s just what you decide in the moment. You can always take a left turn or a right turn and figure [out] your way back because I think wherever you go is where you’re meant to be in that moment.”

“If Lara Jean from the first movie saw Lara Jean in the third movie, she would be pretty happy with the glow-up,” the 23-year-old actress says. “But I also know there will be a faction of people who are like, ‘You didn’t go with him!’ You’re not all these things!'”
Condor supplied up an thought for a fourth film, ought to it ever come to fruition in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later.
“Oh god, I wish!” she stated when requested in regards to the thought of constant Lara Jean’s story. “I know that for what people have been telling me, there won’t be one but never say never. And I have this dream that maybe in 10 years, when Lara Jean and Peter are grown up and they’re professionals in the workplace and they’re adults, it’d be so cool to see them in that different light.”
