Name of the Knives Out sequel
Instead of naming the movie simply Knives Out 2, writer-director Rian Johnson forwarded a new title to this sequel. The second installment of Knives Out has been titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. This title pays homage to the Beatles’ song “Glass Onion” released in 1968.
Rian Johnson says-
This is all in plain sight from the very start. So, the idea of glass came to me, something that’s clear. I’ll be very honest. I literally got out my iPhone and searched my music library with the word glass. “There’s got to be some good glass songs.” I was like, “Oh, is it a glass fortress? Is it a glass castle? Is it a glass man?” The first thing that came up, because I’m a huge Beatles fan, is ‘Glass Onion.
Knives Out 2 Plot
A news article on Netflix companion website Tudum writes-
When tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) invites some of his nearest and dearest for a getaway on his private Greek island, it soon becomes clear that all is not perfect in paradise. And when someone turns up dead, well, who better than Blanc to peel back the layers of intrigue?
Private Investigator Benoit Blanc will travel to Greece to uncover the mystery behind the murder at a glamorous dinner party.

More about Knives Out 2 plot
Writer-Director Rian Johnson is very much inspired by Agathe Christie and it can be said that Detective Hercule Poirot inspired the character Private Investigator Benoit Blanc. Aside from Christie’s novels, Johnson is also inspired by tropical getaway murder mystery” films like 1982’s Evil Under the Sun, and in particular, 1973’s The Last of Sheila.
There are absolutely some very clear inspirations that I took from it. First of all, it’s structured around a group of friends, or frenemies, who all have a power dynamic with one of their successful friends. It begins with him sending an invitation for them to come and play this murder mystery game at this exotic locale. In The Last of Sheila, it’s on his yacht, and everything ends up going horribly wrong.
That is essentially how Glass Onion begins
