Why was the Vampire Academy 2 movie canceled?

vampire academy film

It is quite usual that bestselling book series get a movie adaptation. The Vampire Academy has sold millions of copies worldwide. Having such a huge fanbase willing to watch movie adaptations of the novels they loved, the producers thought it would be easy to get some profit from this series. However, let’s take a look at how the first Vampire Academy movie performed in the theatres:

  • Directed by Mark Waters and released in the USA in 2014.
  • Budget: $30 Million.
  • Box office: $15.3 Million.

Box office bomb. Yes, it was a total failure. With such a low performance, it makes sense that the producers decided not to risk filming a sequel. And, seeing they didn’t even recoup their investment, it is more than understandable that the Vampire Academy 2 movie was never filmed.

But why was the first movie a failure?

Firstly, the Vampire Academy movie has significant changes from the original source. This is usually a bad idea because all the fans who are going to the theatres who want to watch a movie adaptation of the novel they loved will find out that the film does not resemble at all the story they enjoyed, therefore, they will not want to watch the sequel.

It is understandable that the movie adaptation is not 100% the same as the novel it’s based on. However, when these changes are quite notable, as is the case, it is usually not a good start. The same happened with The Mortal Instruments 2 movie, being canceled because of the low performance of its predecessor film as well.

But not only the script was the reason The Vampire Academy movie flopped and got negative reviews, a 3.5 score on Filmaffinity for example. The CGI effects and the action sequences were not as good as they were expected to be. Similarly, the movie has lots of jokes that are just not good.

Any chance the Vampire Academy 2 movie will ever be filmed?

Not at all. After such a bad reception, and given that several years have passed since the first movie was released, there is no way there will be a Vampire Academy sequel. Would you like this franchise to be rebooted? leave a comment telling us your thoughts.

The problem with the movie was, that it looked like a mashup of Mean Girls with Twilight. Which makes sense, because the director of this film was also in charge of filming Mean Girls.

(And make sure if your going to put vampire academy 2 to watch at home or the tv and computer, please put it on a app where i have access to it, please, Thank You.

    • I think a TV series would be awesome, maybe a Netflix original to revitalise and reboot the franchise. I enjoy the movie, but not as much as I expected to. I just want the story to continue.!

    • yes i agree i am so upset i am so desprate for a 2 film imagine all the money the directors and other people could make just by putting a sieries

  • I like the movie. They need to make a sequel to all of them. I have been waiting for it. Everyone should know that the movies are not like the books. Just like twilight.

  • Yes obviously I would like them to reconsider about making a vamp academy 2. It was actually a really good movie, it’s what got me into reading the books in the first place. I was really bummed to find out that there wasn’t gonna be a number 2. I hope they change their minds one day, hopefully soon!!:(

  • yes i loved the book even tho it wasnt 100% right i still enjoyed the movie and ill like for it to make a sequal

  • yes your so right they should

  • I watched Vampire Academy with my granddaughter, she is 16. We absolutely loved it. Reading this article has me stumped as to why it wasn’t a success. Are you sure you took in enough comments as to the audience wanting a sequel? I would think there are enough numbers to suggest another movie should be made.

  • I love this movie and book those that don’t read the book first don’t understand what is going on so they don’t have the idea of what these girls are going through. It really needs to be continued the rest of the books need to be done as movies there great and need to be seen.the storyline is worth it.

  • I completely agree. Just like how they did with Shadowhunters. Make a series and use the book as a reference instead of trying to make it more theatrical. I honestly completely forgot about this series for a few years and watched the movie bc it sounded familiar and now I’m on this path trying to find a second movie hoping they at least made more but no. As always movies are a disappointment. Well thanks for reading my rant.

  • I thought it was avlowere budget than it says but I really enjoyed it and I would like a series made out of it and hope it’s happens soon x

  • I am Turkish. I am writing to you from Turkey. I also read the series. And it would be great if the book was made as a movie from start to finish. i’m waiting for this

  • I would absolutely love to have all the Vamp Academy books made into movies and even the spin off bloodlines series!

  • I absolutely love the vampire academy movie and was so looking forward to the rest of the series being made! Please make them!

  • I’ve read and own all of the books. Twilight was super awkward on the first movie so I don’t see why they can’t continue making the movies? Just do better.

  • It did take some getting into the film but i enjoyed and loved it by the end and was sad to know there wouldn’t be a 2nd. With some tweeks it could be great like twilight.

  • I absolutely love the books!! An I really liked the movie as well. Sometimes ppl don’t realize that movies are not going to be exactly what we read in the books we enjoy reading. I hope they make these books into movies again. At least try… or hopefully maybe some Netflix series, that would be Awesome!! Each book a into season? I say we rally for that. MAKE THE VAMPIRE ACADEMY BOOKS into a Netflix series. Yes pleaseee!!! (:

  • I’m gutted there’s no number 2 I love this film it was better than most films that get a sequel so don’t get why this isn’t having one!!

    Deffo make a series on Netflix

  • I know they likely never will continue to make the movies, but I wish they would. I think the casting could have been better, but I liked the main teenage cast. If they make it now, they would have to start from the beginning since it has been so long.

  • I liked the books, but the movie was a disappointment. The movie should have been longer for starters or they should have made it a tv series. There was no time for character development. They chopped the back story out for all the B characters. They did not spend enough time building the relationships between all the characters and there was hardly any magic. It literally felt like the entire movie was playing on fast forward the whole time.

  • I have read all the books and watched the movie they should continue making the movies I loved it. My sister who has trouble with reading and comprehension loved movie and was hoping the rest would make more.
    When I read post I was confused on why movie got bad reviews and didn’t continue

  • I loved the movie and books. I’ve been looking forward to a the next one in the series for years now. Highly disappointed that they’ve chosen not to do more movies from the series. My husband and I would have a date night to see each one if they come out. Desperately hoping they Change their minds and make more(with the original characters from the first movie too). Yes there was a lot of haters(haters are everywhere) but there’s alot of people that loved it.

  • Although I agree whole heartedly that the movie was not as good as the book, I still enjoyed the movie. They did cut and change details that made it confusing, but regrettably that is something that has to be done for run-time reasons. I did love the idea previously posted by another viewer that suggested a Netflix series. THAT would be awesome!

  • Please make another one! I’m very sad that they didn’t continue with the movies!

  • I love this movie please make the sequel movie please im not a fan of reading i really need the sequel movies pleaseeeee.

  • I really love the books. As far as the movie is concerned, I really liked it too. I’ve see multiple movies based off of books and as far as I can tell vampire academy movie stuck more to the book than most others do. If a second movie was to be made I would definitely go and see it.

  • I agree i have seen the move 6 times now and read the books 3 times each. Great sory line and every one knows that the mostion picture is never as good as the books. Yes it wasnt as good as i thought it might be and yes it could of been better but i still love it and want more. Give us a sequel or a tv show. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

  • This has always been my favorite series. While the movie was different from the book, it was still good. I hope they would reconsider and finish making the movies.

  • I loved this movie and the actors! I never heard of the books, but just happened to find this movie channel surfing one day. I even had my sister and niece watch it with me and they loved it. I was so looking forward to another, with the same cast, but too much time has gone by. I don’t understand how movies like twilight and it’s horrible acting, except for Robert Pattinson, can have multiple movies. But, vamp academy and it’s great acting gets scrapped! Doesn’t make sense! This was a great storyline with an amazing protagonist. Loved the actress that played Rose and her playful yet sensual serious self. Her chemistry with dimitri was sizzling and would have loved to see it play out instead of reading it in a book. CGI and effects could have been better, but it didn’t take away from the story or acting. So disappointed this series wasn’t given a shot in theaters. But, sorry ass no talent Kristen Stewart gets 5 movies…smh

  • I’m really sad there will be no vampire academy 2 judging by the way the end of the first one is

  • I have watched the film so much I need the 2 Nd now

  • It doesn’t matter how long it was . I read all the books and I want to see them in the movies. Can you please do the movies of vampire academy

  • I loved the books and was so excited about the first movie. I thought it was really good and ha e been hoping that that will do the rest of the books!!

  • I have read all of the books and loved them. Loved the movie too. Would love to see all the books made into movies or maybe they can make them into a Tv Show.

  • I just saw the VA on Netflix. Never heard of it though I enjoy vampire, werewolf and zombie movies very much. I enjoyed the movie, most of the cast worked well together though part of the story line was a little difficult to follow. As I said, never heard of it, movie, books etc. A few cast changes, main characters excluded, others that work better with them and a bit of publicity for a semi-sequel could produce a winning combo.

  • I want more vampire academy movies even if you have to start fresh.. twilight has passed, we need another good vampire movie, I loved the books, I no the movies could be just as amazing please make the movies!!

  • they should p\for sure make the second movie cause as we say its never too late to make things right..who knows maybe vampire academy 2 will be success than 1st part

  • Definitely should make the second movie, i watched the frist one around the time it was released, begged and pleaded my mom to buy me the books, and yes in almost all cases books are better than the movie or series… however there are people out there who are not readers and would prefer to watch the movies.

    I for one love and enjoy both reading and watching the movies of books I’ve read.

    If I were truly to have a say, I’d say produce the second movie, if there is fear of it failing don’t leave the story open ended so that people won’t be stuck with a cliffhanger. And also advertise it on a larger aspect.

  • Sure, the movie was a bit chaotic, but overall i loved it quite a lot. Movies would need to be 3 times as long to be able to make a good book adaptation, which will never happen. There simply isnt enough time to cover all the details. I do wish they make the sequel/series with the same cast

  • Its been 7 years. Re-release it. Watched it the other night. I thought its was cool, funny and a good story. I’m 54 years old. People are different now. They might love it like me after all those years. Peace

  • Please revamp the second movie! I loved the first movie and I would love to see what happens next.

  • ALL 12 books btw both series are absolutely amazing and are my favorites. I really think if they put effort into making all of them right and telling the characters full stories start to finish they would make bank. Just like with the Harry Potter series.

  • I read all the books prior to this movie coming out and I loved the movie. I think the problem was that there was so much hype for Harry Potter and Twilight at the time that the Vampure Academy got overshadowed by them. I would love to see a sequel if it were ever possible. Perhaps it could finally get the response it deserves.

  • I think could make a part 2 of the movie people will watch it if don’t want put it in theaters let it go to Netflix. I loved the movie and loved mortal instruments also. I think could been more like the books, but still great movies.

  • I wish they would make all the books into a movie. I have read them all and seen the first movie and I loved it.

  • I NEED a second vampire academy! It’s one of my favorite movies and it would be a dream for another one!

  • I think it was good. Yes, it could have been better but this a more reason to make the second one way better. This is my first time hearing and watching the Vampires Academy and it’s leading me to buy the book to know what happens next. Even if the first movie didn’t turned out like they expected then they need to listen to what the audience wants and come back with something else more extraordinary. Leave the audience wanting more from this story.

  • I think they should remake it. Change the director and cast. Make it as close to novels as possible better fight scenes and more intense feelings. Everything was so rushed so awkward. Scene changes were not smooth at all and jokes were to weak and not said with co vision that rose in novel said them with..

  • The Authors who write these awesome books shouldn’t sell to studios who are so cheap that by the time they’re done with the changes and the cuts, it does’nt even resemble the same book. And the Authors should be more loyal to their fan base, their books and themselves.

  • I just watched the movie not knowing that they have books out.I so totally agree that a second movie needs to be made. As the article said and I think it speaks for all of us when it says many questions “haven’t been answered.” Hopefully a second movie will be released soon.

  • I think we should definitely have a second movie.

  • I actually really loved the first movie. I love their quirky relationship it feels heartfelt and real moreso than most movies. And it doesn’t hurt that the actor playing Dimitri is Gorgeous. Legitimately bummed out they decided not to make the second film. Especially when covid hit. They could have made a total killing by releasing the sequel. Hopefully someone somewhere reconsiders. (And please for the love of all things sacred don’t change out ANY of the actors! Lol)

  • yes i agree i am so upset i am so desprate for a 2 film imagine all the money the directors and other people could make just by putting a sieries

  • Movie sucks. it would be so much better if it had more scenes with Roza and Dmitri. they are fire. I want the sequel just for those actors. there chemistry was on spot.

  • I think they should have a sequel and if they can’t because too much time has past then reboot it and make it over again and do a sequel either on DVD or hell do it on Netflix

  • I think they should do a sequel anyways,just follow more of the second book at the very least.

  • I would really like to watch vampire academy 2 I can’t wait to know what gonna happen so please film the second part

  • I loved the books and I will admitted when this first came out I was disappointed. It wasn’t what I had envisioned at all, but after giving the VA show a chance, let’s just say I have a new appreciation for the movie. Yes the movie wasn’t great and could have been way better, but it is by far better than the new series. I can know see how they at least attempted to stick close to the source material. I did like the Rose they had chose, her personality was closer to what I pictured; if she were a bit more curvy she would have been perfect.
    The movies could be great and they could definitely give it another shot. Maybe reading the books and getting a better feel as to how to move forward. Twilight was awful yet we got those series completed, and they did get better with time. This could be Vampire Academy as well because how could they do worse than the new series. That physically hurt me. Improve the action scenes, add more to the score, and maybe get rid of some of the corniness and they could make something great!
